The Suns snapped a 3-game losing streak with a win over the Blazers in their last game.
The Blazers have won 10 of their last 12 home games against the Suns.
The Suns big off-season acquisition was C Tyson Chandler and after struggling in the first game of the season he came up big for in the win over the Blazers going for 15 points and 13 boards. It is key that the Blazers play better interior defense than they did on the road in the loss to the Suns where they gave up 58 points in the paint.

The Suns played solid D in their win over the Blazers holding Portland to a FG% of 39.5% and they also forced 23 turnovers.

Lillard is averaging 16.4 ppg on 35.5% shooting in his last 8 games against Phoenix.
The Blazers have to attack the rim more in this game and not settle for jumpers, as in the loss to the Suns they only had 19 free throws while Phoenix had 42.
In the last 2 seasons the Blazers have the league’s 4th highest home winning percentage.
Portland C Meyers Leonard had 0 points on 0-5 shooting in the loss to the Suns and while is offense could help it is important he plays better defense on Chandler and not allowing the Phoenix big man to dominate the glass.
