You're tired of the Portland Trail Blazers. I'm tired of the Portland Trail Blazers. We're all tired of the Portland Trail Blazers.
But the young Blazers continue to win. Winners of 6 in a row and 11 of their last 12, the Blazers are looking like a formidable opponent for the West elite in the first round of the playoffs. Once considered a rebuilding team, Portland has proven the pundits wrong.
Damian Lillard has five straight games of scoring 30 points. C.J. McCollum has scored 30+ in his last two and is capable of matching Lillard's output. Meyers Leonard is a Rocket killer through and through. In fact, there's a lot to like about Portland's team other than the fact that they play for the Blazers.
In all seriousness, tonight is a huge game for both teams. The Blazers want to push for a top 5 seed (entirely possible) and Houston fighting to make the playoffs (somewhat possible).
Tip-off is at 9:30pm CST on TNT.
