Looks like the Blazers have a good shot at home court advantage for the playoffs. Which would be good.
Blazers have some of the best young talent in the league, they are going to make noise in the play offs for at least the next 6 years. They are 9 out of 10 in there last 10 games, they seem to be peaking at the right time.
Trail Blazers Defeat Nuggets, Secure Home-Court Advantage
The Trail Blazers secured home-court advantage for the first round of the Playoffs by defeating the Nuggets 104-76 Wednesday night at the Rose Garden. The victory means the Trail Blazers can finish no lower than the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference.
Rudy Fernandez (six 3s) scored 18 points and Travis Outlaw led with 21 as the Blazers used a balanced scoring attack and 72 points from the bench to take control in the second quarter and cruise to the win in the fourth. Steve Blake scored nine points to lead the starters. Channing Frye pumped in 12 points and Greg Oden added 10, each from the bench.
Home court is significant because Portland finished the regular season 54-28, with a 34-7 home record, one of the best in the NBA.
Brandon Roy is so good.. The guy is a KILLER in the 4th and plays the game it seems in slow motion. I love Aldridge's game but sometimes his jumper is erratic. Joel Pryzbilla is such an underrated player.
