So excited for Blazers ball...especially this year. This will be huge as a statement game. On the road, 1st game of the season, and in place were we traditionally lose. I know that it is only 1 game in 82 but some games you should win, some games are statement games that show everyone where you are at in your development, and some games you should lose. This is the 1st two.
Yeah I think it would definitely set the season off on the wrong tone to lose this game. Although if last year taught us anything it's that the beginning of the season is but a small sample. We were what, 7-2 to start the year?

Phoenix came out of the preseason with one of the best records with good defensive numbers. While it is just preseason, being able to hold opponents to less points says something. They might be better than they look this season.
I think we'll win, but Phoenix might make it a challenge in some ways.
