Cavs @ Blazers Preview

PORTLAND, OREGON - This evening the Cavaliers travel into the rainforest climate of Portland to enter into battle with the highly touted Trailblazers, who they defeated at home earlier this year 100-87. The good guys will hope to split the back-to-back games out west after losing a game they shouldn't have last night to the Sonics 101-96. Perhaps it was the All-Star level play of forward Chris Wilcox that kept the Cavs from stealing one on the road. Am I the only one that notices that the men in wine and gold seem to allow one mediocre player on every team to play far above their usual level? (Most notable: Brian Skinner of the '03-04 Milwaukee Bucks) To the delight of Cavaliers fans, tin man Larry Hughes will be playing again tonight, which will mark his second straight game played; congratulations are certainly in order. Sources are reporting that he expects to stay in the lineup throughout the remainder of the season as long as he doesn't come into any sort of physical contact with opposing players or the floor.
