Back-to-back lights-out shooting performances.

Back-to-back huge games for Andre Iguodala.

Back-to-back wins for the Philadelphia 76ers.

Seems like a good equation we could get used to in Philly.

The 76ers entered the fifth and final game of their western trip in Portland tonight to take on the Trailblazers.

Fresh off a hot shooting performance in Sacramento last night, the Sixers looked to continue to bring the heat, and pick up another win on the road trip.

They stand at 3-2 on the trip with a key win over Los Angeles before faltering in Phoenix and Golden State.

Philadelphia picked up the slack last night in Sacramento, and it carried over into tonight, but it took a little extra time.

Less than 24 hours removed from one of the best shooting performances, I've seen in a while, and coming from the 76ers at that, Andre Iguodala and company came out firing again.

In what would turn out to be a back and forth first quarter, the 76ers would ultimately turn up on the good side, 31-26 after one.
