Portland Trail Blazers Struggle In Texas, Look To Improve At Minnesota Tonight

Jaron RustContributor IFebruary 27, 2009

It was a rough week for the Portland Trail Blazers in Texas this week.

The Blazers lost to both the Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs, which ended the momentum started from the two home wins after the All-Star Break. Wins over the Memphis Grizzlies, Atlanta Hawks, and L.A. Clippers were good for morale, but Portland (35-22) has dropped five in a row on the road.

They hope to right the ship tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center to close out the road trip. The team is 12-17 on the road and 23-5 at home. Minnesota is in a four-game losing streak of its own.
