The program of the next game day of the NBA regular season will end in Oregon, where the local Portland will try to a win over Washington. Opponents represent different Conferences, but are in a rather similar intermediate tournament position. Portland ready to beat Washington?
Wednesday March 4th, 2020 at 10:00 PM ET. Moda Center at the Rose Quarter (1 N Center Ct St, Portland, OR 97227, US).
Washington Wizards players played their last match against Charlotte Hornets. The win then went to Charlotte with a score of (129:124). It’s worth noting that for Washington this failure was the third in the last four games.
Washington has four wins behind eighth place in the Eastern Conference. However, the main problem of the metropolitan team is that it simply disgusting defense. Wizards by margin have the worst defense in the NBA. On average, they miss almost 120 points per game. Nevertheless, the attack of the capital’s club works quite well. Almost 116 points per game – a great indicator.
The Wizards from time to time may still show good basketball, but the overall picture is not happy. Scott Brooks’s team doesn’t manage to reach a new level, because the infirmary is simply crowded with key players, including team leader John Wall.
Portland Trail Blazers
The Portland Trail Blazers rivaled the Brooklyn Nets in the National Basketball Association’s regular season game. Better then showed themselves the players of Portland, scoring two points more.
Portland three wins behind the playoff zone in the West. In addition, the Oregon team will not be able to count on their leader Damian Lillard, who on average brings 30 points per match.
Blazers were again outside the playoff zone, though the fact that not everything is lost is still pleasing, because the team dropped to the ninth line in the West. Terry Stotts’s wards also can’t count on the optimal composition, as Jusuf Nurkic, Zach Collins, Skal Labissiere and Rodney Hood are injured. Portland lost five games in a row, which generally does not fit into any framework. The team clearly needs to change their trend, the more the game against Washington promises to be successful, at least according to bookmakers.
Wizards vs Blazers Prediction
In our opinion, injuries will prevent Washington from playing successfully in the home arena, especially since Portland has reached an impasse and will do everything possible to interrupt a series of five defeats, so we offer a bet on the win of the guests.
