The Trail Blazers may be a mere 5-8, but they're 5-1 at home. In other words, tonight's game is not one we should take lightly.

Be sure to head on over to Blazer's Edge to read Dave's scouting report on the Magic. Dave seems to think the Blazers' best option is to double-team Howard, thus forcing the Magic's shooters to beat them.

Minutes should be a concern for the Magic on this five-game, eight-night road trip. Tim Povtak checks in with a report on that subject. If the bench players want to get more burn, they need to take a page from Keyon Dooling's book and string together some back-to-back double-digit scoring performances.
