On March 7, Sacramento and Portland are going to play the next NBA regular season match. The home team is likely to achieve a convincing victory for they’re much stronger now. Will the Blazers cope with the Kings? – Here is our prediction for you.
Bet here and win
Kings are the neighbors of Portland, so the match is extremely principled, as the ninth line of the Western Conference is at stake.
Sacramento lost the last match after three wins, which to some extent surprised, because their rival came far from the optimal composition (108-125). The Kings understand how important it is to take their points off the Modo Centre arena, because then they will breathe easier, but Portland is a serious competitor.
Luke Walton’s players have increased significantly in a couple of months, it can be seen from their location in the table, the team from 12 line up to 10, which is not bad for them as a whole. And if they continue to do so, they still have a chance to make it to the playoffs before the end of the main season. From the last ten away matches we can see that they suffered only four losses, which means that their performance is all at the same level.
Portland Trail Blazers
Lillard, McCallum and Carmello have to play another strong match on their court in the upcoming meeting, and a lot, if not all, should be achieved against a far from the most effective opponent. Moreover, Center Hassan Whiteside’s factor should not be forgotten – this player will dominate under the basket in the upcoming meeting: The Kings has no strong basketball players in paint at the moment.
Let us remind you that Portland defeated Orlando (130-107) and also put Washington (125-104) in their last game. Terry Stots’s players see only one goal ahead of them – getting into the top eight of the West, so it will be extremely difficult to stop them now, although we should not forget that Sacramento have the same goal.
The guests of this match, after a rather uncertain three weeks in the league, were able to win the last two games, but this does not guarantee that in this match, too, their business will continue with a similar trend. But still, these failures are mainly related to away games, and at home they lost only three times, in the last ten games.
Kings vs Blazers Prediction
We’ve already seen how Lilliard has a beneficial effect on his team’s offense – with him, Blazers are able to demonstrate a very solid performance on the other side of the court. Although the statistics show that Sacramento is on the good run at the moment having won 6 games out of the last 10. Portland won only twice in his last 6 matches, losing both to outsiders and top teams. Portland is in a slight crysis so the Kings could win over Blazers and we would advise you to bet on the Californians
