Television: ESPN - 7:30ish tip

Best Matchup - Lawson vs. Lillard.  Going to really enjoy watching these two kids going at each other all night.  Bother are fast and fearless, also they play a little, but not much of defense.  I could see this breaking down to a bit of a one on one type affair.  Who ever gets double teamed and consistently passes out to find their open team mates is going to be huge.

Coach vs. Coach - Our beloved George Karl going up against his former pupil, Terry Stotts.  I think George is going to show Stotts a few more things tonight.

Prediction: I think this is going to be a scrappy game for the most part.  Denver should pull away late as Portland tires down.  Thinking Denver 107, Portland 98.
