The Trail Blazers will visit the Wizards in what should be a fun matchup between two of the more exciting teams in the NBA. Portland is currently in third in the Western Conference and playing some of its best ball of the season, winning eight of its last 10. Washington is reeling a little bit winning just five of its last 10. Both of these teams are expected playoff teams, so fans should be in for a hard-fought game.
Portland is playing the second of a five-game road trip. It is coming off of two of its best performances of the season, shooting 55 percent from the field and 49 percent from 3-point range while averaging 115.5 PPG. Games like this are making Portland look like a championship contender. It has won three straight since losing Wesley Matthews for the season and will look to make it four against the Wizards.
Washington has struggled as of late after a hot start to the season. Beal is finally back healthy, and Washington is looking to catch stride the last quarter of the season and grab home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. Although the Wizards have been playing poorly, they did win their last three by an average of almost 21 PPG. This is the last game of their homestand before a four-game Western Conference road trip, so they’ll want to get some momentum in front of their fans vs. Portland.
Portland defeated Washington, 103-96, on Jan. 24 in Rip City and was led by Aldridge’s 26 points and nine rebounds. Wall recorded 25 points in that one for the Wizards, who have lost two in a row in this series after winning three straight.
Washington is 4-1 in the last five meetings with Portland in DC.
