NBA Regular Season 2012-2013, Game 75:

Portland Trail Blazers (33-40) at Utah Jazz (38-36)

Don't be an April Fool. Play together, play hard, and get the win.

.

The Basics:

Didn't we just play these guys? LaMarcus Aldridge has a "sprained right ankle" and a mild case of tankitis so he's now expected to miss one week. So All-Star Aldridge is going to be out. Sasha Pavlovic and Elliot Williams are also out. Damian Lillard is a little banged up. We're pretty much playing a Portland team that is already given up the ghost.

We have to win. We're playing great. We can win 5 games in a row. (How sad is it that a 5 game win streak is what we're chasing this year?) But we can't take these guys for granted. Especially not on April Fool's Day.
