NOTES

• I am personally looking forward to watching Wiggins and Towns for the first time in a full game.

• It is amazing how these two teams have such similar W/L records and yet the future for Minnesota is so much brighter. 

• Towns won the all-important Rookie of the Month title for November. WHAT AN HONOR.

• I expect the Blazers to get badly out-rebounded.

• Lillard and CJ should score ample buckets against Minnesota's backcourt.

• A key to the game is Aminu (and backup Mo Harkless) staying out of foul trouble and containing Wiggins.

 

INJURIES

Portland: Chris Kaman, Questionable – Ankle 
Minnesota: Nikola Pekovic, Out – Achilles
