Unexpectedly Rested Portland Visiting OKC
(AP) — The Portland Trail Blazers were likely looking at tonight's matchup against Russell Westbrook and the Thunder in Oklahoma City as a tough, especially coming off a Monday night game in Minnesota. But, while Westbrook and his mates won't be any less a challenge tonight, the Blazers may at least be a bit better rested. That game last night against the Timberwolves had to be postponed due to a slippery court. Condensation from an ice sheet underneath the court combined with the outside humidity made the floor unplayable, on a day in temperatures in Minneapolis reached the mid-60s.
In other action tonight, the L.A. Lakers travel to Dallas, while the Southeast Division-leading Washington Wizards are in Phoenix to play the Suns.
