A good early test for the 1991 Portland Blazers to see where they were in their season. Already off to a great start at 30-6 and in first place not only the Pacific, but in the West as a whole. But the Detroit Pistons are the reason why the Blazers weren’t the defending NBA champions going into the 1991 NBA season. And the Pistons were looking for their third straight NBA championship and seeing if they were good enough to pull that off. This was a matchup of the two NBA conference champions, the two NBA Finals teams from 1990. Not quite a rematch of the 1990 NBA Finals, this being a regular season game. But certainly and import game for both clubs to see where they were at this point in the 1991 season.
