Bryant Knox previews the Portland Trail Blazers Feb. 10 matchup against the Orlando Magic. Since the last time these two teams faced off, Portland has gone 7-10 while Orlando is just 2-15. The Magic are in the midst of the league’s longest losing streak, and Portland will look to take advantage of a struggling team come Sunday. The key matchup is between J.J. Hickson and Nikola Vucevic. Hedo Turkoglu and J.J. Reddick are both questionable, while Glen Davis is out.
NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Portland’s easy victory over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night. Not at all resembling the team that lost to a mediocre Sacramento team just a few days ago, Portland jumped out to a lead and kept asserting their dominance, proving they are at least above a certain tier of teams in the NBA. One of the players that has been essential to Portland’s uprising this season is LaMarcus Aldrige.
