Magic at Blazers, Pre-pregame

The Blazers finally get to play a game in Portland after a 4-1 Eastside swing. Although the homeness of this particular home game is debatable, I'm sure the team will be somewhat re-energized by playing in a building where they are undefeated.

That perfect home record will be tested tonight by the hot-hot Magic. Like Portland, Orlando has won eight of their last ten. They are also one of the best road teams in the League with a 7-2 record. This is a better Magic team than the one the Blazers beat back in November.

Something interesting to keep an eye on is Portland's won-lost profile. Six of the Blazers seven losses came from teams in the top ten for points scored. A scary trend that hopefully will evaporate as the season wears on. I'm sure I'll post more on this later.

And for the curious Orlando is twelfth in this category.
