Tipoff: 10:00 PM EST.
Venue: Moda Center (Portland, OR)
Unlike most of you, I’m excited for the game tonight. Mainly because we get to see a very talented Portland team tonight. It’s always nice to see a team that has home grown talent. The Blazers are a good example of what the Bobcats want to be sometime in the near future. Something that makes this team so good is there ability to win on the road and at home. They have won of the best home court advantages in the league, but they also play well away from the Moda Center. In their last game, they went on the road and beat a tough Oklahoma City team. They will definitely be tough on our Cats tonight.
As for the Bobcats, they just need to keep playing hard. If the effort is there, that’s all you can ask for. It’s key for this team to not get frustrated at the results. If they do, this season could turn into what we are all used to, and nobody wants that.

Who wins the game?
I’m typically an optimistic guy, but I don’t see any scenario where the Bobcats are able to win this one. It could get ugly early.
