Pregame for Hornets

Posted on: November 14, 2008 8:15 pm
 

This will be a quick entry since im waiting for the game to start in a few minutes.  We are currently 2-0 on our road trip and this would make an awesome start to the road trip if we could pull this one out.  I will make a few "keys" to the game and a few predictons here and will try and have a follow up after the game.

Keys to the game:
-They need to control David West.  Paul is going to get his, but we've got to try and contain West.  If we can keep him under 20 points i think it will keep us in it.
-Pick up our perimeter defense.  Try and keep Peja, Posey, Peterson from dominating the scoring.
-Cause turnovers and score in transition.  With Chandler in the middle it might not be as safe a bet to get to the rim.  Get out and run.

Predictions:

Hornets:
Paul: 24 pts, 11 ast, 3 rebs, 3 stl
West:  17 pts, 8 rebs
Chandler:  8 pts, 12 rebs, 4 blks

Blazers:
Roy: 22 pts, 4 rebs, 6 ast, 1 stl
Rudy:  18 pts, 2 rebs, 3 ast, 2stl
Aldridge: 17 pts, 9 rebs, 2 blk
Outlaw:  12 pts, 3 rebs, 3 ast, 1 stl, 1 blk
Oden:  8 pts, 4 rebs, 2 blk

Final score - 102-108 Blazers on top
