Portland Trail Blazers @ Phoenix Suns

General Motors Place - Vancouver, BC

That last game of the preseason. I can tell you the team is tired of traveling around the world (three countries plus Oklahoma!) and will be looking forward to coming back to Phoenix for a few days of practice before the season kicks off next week in LA.

This will also be the last game of the season that isn't televised!

With no TV, don't expect much from us about this game. We'll link to the relevant recaps and box score but for tonight I advise just kicking back and sending positive thoughts for Goran Dragic's infected toe.

Of course those maniacs from Blazers Edge probably aren't going to be so chill as us so if you need some kind of online rush go visit their thread. Be nice.

Looks like the Blazers will counter the Suns no Dragic by sitting Oden, Aldridge and Batum. Seems fair to me...

Oden (adductor) and Aldridge (shin) are probable for tonight's game v. Suns. Batum (thigh) is questionable
