Portland Trail Blazers

The Portland Trail Blazers have been in terrible shape as they’ve lost 10 of their last 12 games overall and they will be hoping to put an end to a six-game slide after falling just short to the Nuggets in a 114-111 loss on Saturday. Duop Reath led the team with 24 points on nine of 14 shooting, Scoot Henderson added 22 points with six assists while Tounami Camara chipped in with 16 points, seven rebounds and six assists. As a team, the Trail Blazers shot 46 percent from the field and 10 of 28 from the 3-point line as they poured in 36 points in the third quarter to erase an early 15-point deficit, only to see the Nuggets go on a decisive 15-4 run late in the game to pull away for good.

Houston Rockets

Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets have been on fire as they’ve reeled off 10 wins in their last 11 games overall and they will be eager to build on their current eight-game win streak after blowing past the struggling Jazz in a 147-110 win on Saturday. Jalen Green led the team with 41 points on 15 of 22 shooting, Fred VanVleet drained 10 3-pointers to finish with 34 points and seven assists while Jeff Green chipped in with 21 points off the bench. As a team, the Rockets shot 55 percent from the field and a sizzling 27 of 49 from the 3-point line as they made this one look easy from the start, exploding for 47 points in the first quarter to lead by as many as 35 points before they finally took their foot off the gas in the fourth quarter to rest some starters early.

Trail Blazers vs Rockets prediction

The Trail Blazers could be severely depleted once again with Deandre Ayton, Anfernee Simons and Matisse Thybulle all listed as questionable, while the Rockets are still missing Cam Whitmore and Alperen Sengun are still ruled out. The Trail Blazers showed plenty of fight to hang with the shorthanded Nuggets in their last outing, but they’ve been one of the coldest teams in the league for a while now and they’re going to find it tough to hang with the Rockets who are playing their best basketball of the season at the moment.
