Bryant Knox previews the Portland Trail Blazers March 2 matchup against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Portland is coming off of a tough loss to the Denver Nugets on Wednesday that went down to the last second. If Portland can take care of business early against the Wolves, last-second heroics won’t be necessary. The key matchup is going to be between the two big men in the middle, J.J. Hickson and Nikola Pekovic. LaMarcus Aldridge may also see some time against Minnesota’s center.
