Portland Trail Blazers game previews between November 28 and December 4, including games against: Indiana Pacers, Miami Heat.
Short week for the Blazers with only two games, but that works out just fine for me since the Lakers have a better record than us and I'm most likely going to be on suicide watch till we go over .500 again. The Trail Blazers are currently 9-10 and hold sole possession of 9th place in the Western Conference.
Let's win some games.

The Pacers are currently ravaged by injuries, with Paul George out and CJ Miles day-to-day the Blazers will only need to worry about Jeff Teague and Myles Turner, who has been having a breakout season averaging nearly 15 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 blocks per game while shooting over 50 percent from the field. The Pacers injuries, however, will sink them in this game assuming the Blazers play to their strengths.

While not as injury ravaged as the Pacers, the Heat are in a similar situation as the Blazers need to keep their eye's on only three things: Hassan Whiteside, Goran Dragic, and the 3 point shooting. Josh Richardson and Tyler Johnson are playing as well as they could be expected and are both shooting 36% from three for the year, which is more than respectable. As long as they Trail Blazers focus on those three points of emphasis, they should be fine.
