Did we say the Blazers were playing the Hornets last week? We forgot that it was the Bobcats in Charlotte—and clearly so did the Bobcats themselves, as they lost by 44 points. The Blazers hiccuped their next game against the Kings in Sacramento before coming back and crushing the division-rival Nuggets by 20. THIS week the Blazers play the Hornets—we'll see whether they fare better than the Bobcats. And while the news of Greg Oden's latest setback comes as something of a tragic non-surprise, Jamal Crawford's sixth-man energy is keeping the ship steady. —Russ Bengtson
