As the game nears the start, one can only hope that the tragic loss the Thunder suffered last night at the hands of the Golden State Warriors - yes, you read that right - will not turn into a hangover of sorts and begin a losing streak to end the season. Oklahoma City and Portland are both seeking their 50th win of the season in this matchup that will break the third place tie in the Northwest Division. The obvious storyline to follow will be the absence of the Blazers' star Brandon Roy. Word on the street is Roy will miss at least four games after a partial tear of his meniscus he suffered in Portland''s win over the Lakers.
Since the tip is mere seconds away, we will all have to shake off the hangover and get ready to play some ball!
