The Trailcats have once again established their winning ways by defending the home court. This victory coincided with the return of LaMarcus Aldridge. It's becoming painfully clear that any sort of consistency for any team is going to be very hard to come by this season. These teams can't possibly be performing at their best when they are not accustomed to playing this much. Even teams with younger players are finding out that they can play a great game one night and come out completely flat the next. With a team like Portland it's also becoming clear that the lack of team chemistry might be their downfall. Ray Felton is taking a lot of heat for his performance, most of it deservedly so. But the team as a whole has been very inconsistent. They are so close to being an upper echelon NBA team on some nights, but their inability to finish the close games means they are on the outside looking in for the playoff race.
