The Trail Blazers have left town and they aren’t coming back … at least not for a while. They are off to the East Coast for a seven game road trip that will test the mettle of this young team. They departed with a .500 record after an exciting victory at the Rose Garden against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Black Friday. Road trips always challenge a team, but if the Blazers continue to play as they have been a 4-3 record on this trip is not out of the question.
The trip begins in Brooklyn. The Blazers were greeted with the unfortunate news that power forward LaMarcus Aldridge would be out with a sore back that apparently tightened up on the flight out. It is unknown how long the Blazers will be without Aldridge. On the bright side this presents a nice opportunity for Meyers Leonard to get some minutes and valuable experience with the first team.no comments no comments
