Late-night action with the Pistons and Blazers

Ah, good times. Obviously this year's iteration of the Trail Blazers (and last year's ... and the year before that ...) are a long ways from returning to the Finals, but these two franchises will always be tied in my mind because of that highlight.

Tonight, Rasheed Wallace hopes to go 5-0 against his former team. The Blazers enter the game with a 3-3 record, which is a surprise to some considering their without their rookie cornerstone Greg Oden. But Brandon Roy and LaMarcus Aldridge have been playing exceptionally well, leading the team with 20.7 and 19.2 points, respectively, while both shooting over 50%. Containing those two (easier said than done) will obviously be key.

As always, leave your thoughts and observations in the comments. Game starts at 10 pm on FSN, so brew some coffee now.
