Blazers search for first road win

Nov 19, 2007 - 2:31 PM Portland (4-6) at Charlotte (5-4) 7:00 pm EST

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- The Portland Trail Blazers continue their quest for their first road win when they meet the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday.

Portland has won all four of its home games - including wins over New Orleans, Dallas and Detroit - teams which are a combined 22-7 this season.

Away from the Rose Garden, however, it has been a different story for the Blazers. They are 0-6 outside of Portland, scoring nearly 10 points per game less on the road than they do at home.

On Saturday, the Blazers endured a 109-90 loss to the Gilbert Arenas-less Washington Wizards.

The Blazers will have their hands full trying to break their road skid against the Bobcats, who are 4-2 at home. The Bobcats beat Seattle 100-84 on Saturday on the strength of 23 points from Jason Richardson.

A key part of the win was the Bobcats' play on the defensive end as they held the SuperSonics to 31 percent (26-for-84) shooting. Defense has played a pivotal part in the Bobcats start as they are holding team to 93.9 points per game, one season after they allowed 100.6 per contest.
