Unfortunately they now have to play the Houston Rockets, a veteran team that presents considerable match-up problems. As you will hear over and over from the national media, this Blazer team has an amazing lack of playoff experience. But then again they are the best young team ever. They take care of homecourt. Most importantly, they are playing extremely well right now. I don't feel like counting them out would be wise.
I planned on waking up early and camping out to get my hands on some playoff tickets after arriving home late from the sportsbar last night. I intended to take notes on my experience. This is as far as I got:
5:10 AM: Turn off Alarm
This was immediately followed by more sleeping. But it turns out 5:00 AM would probably have not been early enough anyways.
