Trail Blazers:

The Blazers are 11-8 and hoping for better after finishing 27-55 last year. Billups remarked before the game that “our core has been relatively healthy.” “By working together and playing hard, we’ve given ourselves a chance to win most of our games.”


The season-high, seven-game homestand began with the matinee, and head coach Jacque Vaughn is hoping the Nets can use it to improve and become more focused. Vaughn said when asked why the Nets seem to connect and disconnect throughout games, “The value of each possession.” Because we can score and perhaps make up the deficit, we sometimes take it for granted.
