Game 20: Blazers vs. Heat, 7:00 p.m. KGW

Thanksgiving weekend wasn't exactly the relaxing and happy time it should have been in Portland. For fans, players and everyone else involved, it became a subtle finger-pointing session, following back-to-back losses against Memphis and Utah.

I missed the Memphis game due to social obligations at the Oregon coast. But from what I heard it was a complete nightmare. 18-0 runs, 34-2 runs, Memphis rolling, I'm kind of glad I missed it.

Regarding the Utah game, I was thankful it was on KGW, until I actually started watching. The Jazz came right out and punched the Blazers in the mouth. It was over within 10 minutes. Utah shot lights out, moved the ball well, rebounded better, and the Blazers just looked discombobulated.

Portland needs to stop the bleeding tonight. A win against the Heat would be a step in the right direction. There are two long road trips looming this month, winning games at home is key. Let's take down Dwayne Wade and the Heat!
