Portland Trail Blazers
The guests of this meeting occupy the ninth line, being located one position lower than their opponents. The team played 55 matches in which they have 25 wins and 30 losses. The Terry Stotts’ team chases the Grizzlies in order to reach the play-off zone, but in order to overtake Memphis, one victory will not be enough.
Portland once again confirmed its inability to play away, losing with a crushing score to New Orleans (117-138). McCollum and Lillard tried a lot, but failed to surpass Zion Williamson.
The things of the Trail Blazers in away matches are just dreadful. In three weeks they managed to win only once over Oklahoma. But after that, the Trail Blazers lost to Denver (99-127) and Utah (114-117). On the ninth line of the West, they are held thanks to a successful game at home.
The team is in the eighth place in the standings, thereby closing the play-off zone in the Western Conference. The hosts held 53 matches of which 27 they won and in 26 cases lost. In the last 10 matches, the team lost only three times, which certainly helps them not only to stay in the play-off zone but to gain points in order to rise higher, since such results are quite inherent for the leaders of the tournament table.
For Memphis, the upcoming fight is very important. After all, Portland is considered the main competitor of the Grizzlies for reaching the play-offs. The advantage of the Grizzlies over the trackers is two victories. In a case of success, they can break away from competitors and increase their chances of becoming one of the best teams in the West.
It is worth noting that recently Memphis has been demonstrating an excellent game at home. For example, in the previous three matches, the Bears defeated Phoenix (114-109), Denver (104-96) and Detroit (96-82).

Trail Blazers vs Grizzlies Prediction
In this match, we see that there are two teams standing side by side, approximately the same in strength. So, it’s not easy to predict the outcome of this event. However at their home the Grizzlies are too strong, so we doubt the final success of Portland. The boys of Stotts haven’t learned to play away, that is why most likely, Memphis, who has gained a great pace will achieve another confident victory.
Our prediction: Memphis Grizzlies will win.
