Let's get this party started.

Both Wes Matthews and Grant Hill will start.
I tweeted after watching Wes try and warm up that I didn't think he would go. He was taking some mid-range shots and would only land on his left foot. He was favoring that sprained right ankle a lot. I didn't think he would go but I forgot that it's the Blazers and you have to be dead not to play.
Both coaches answered questions about the importance of this game in the standings. Nate used the "one game at a time" cliche and said "every game is important". Gentry said he's just looking for his team to find some consistency and defend home court.
