Portland looks to run their winning streak to 4 games and inch closer to the .500 mark when they meet with Minnesota on Sunday.
Portland has rattled off 3 straight wins and now sits just 4 games under the .500 mark, as they look to stay in the race for a bottom seed in the West.
Minnesota has been struggling as they’ve dropped 3 straight with their offense struggling once again.
Minnesota has had a handful of problems this season.
When it’s not the offense, it’s the defense. When it’s not the defense it’s the offense. However, more times than not, it’s been both.
Minnesota has dropped 3 straight and 5 of 6 overall as they went through a tough stretch in their schedule and couldn’t handle the pressure. the Twolves fell to New Orleans, Dallas, Cleveland, Oklahoma City, and Utah with a lone win coming against Memphis.
Minnesota is scoring just 99.5 points per game, while their defense has allowed 103.5 points against. They have just 2 wins in the month of January.
Portland knew they wouldn’t be a top team in the West after losing every key piece, but that hasn’t stopped them from picking up some serious steam lately.
The Trail Blazers have won 3 straight and 4 of 5 overall as it looks like a 1/16 loss to the 76ers has really awoken this team. After getting smacked around by the NBA’s worst team, the Trail Blazers have won all 4 games during this stretch by double digits.
In their most recent outing, Portland had 5 different players score in double figures, including 4 starters. Damien Lillard paced them with 22 points, 6 assists, and 5 rebounds, as he has been the facilitator all season long.
Al-Farouq Aminu also had a solid showing going for 17 and 12. If he can continuously put numbers like that up, this Portland team will be extremely dangerous in the 2nd half of the season.

Free NBA Prediction:
Minnesota just hasn’t had it lately.
You can’t win games when allowing 120 plus points. With Portland finally getting a lot of production from more than just Lillard, they are a dangerous team and should have no problem here.
