Both the Hawks and Trail Blazers look to string together another win to their small winning streak when they meet in Portland on Wednesday.
Atlanta has stepped their game up as they’ve won 2 straight with victories coming against Orlando and Brooklyn.
Portland has won 4 of 5 as they’re playing their best basketball this season as they completed their road trip with a win over Washington on Monday.
Atlanta has been incredibly inconsistent this season has they’ve been unable to find stability and any type of consistency on both sides of the ball.
Last season they rattled off 60 wins to set a franchise record, however, this season they won’t come close to that as they look like they will be a middle of the pack team in the East.
They have finally stepped it up over their last 2 games as they’ve grabbed back to back wins to get back to the .500 mark in the month of January. Wednesday will mark the first game of 3 games in 4 nights for the Hawks, who will head into Sacramento and Phoenix this weekend.
Atlanta will look to get back to over .500 on the road as they currently sit 10-10 SU. They’ve gone 9-10-1 ATS in those 2 games as they are about as average as you can get on the road in about every category.
The Trail Blazers knew this season would be tough on them as they begin to rebuild and try to prepare themselves for the years to come.
However, don’t tell Damien Lillard or CJ McCollum that, as Portland continues to try and battle their way back in the West. Currently, Portland sits 9th in the Western Conference, just a .5 game behind 8th seeded Utah.
Lillard and McCollum have been the lone guys who have remained consistent for this Portland team throughout the entire season.
McCollum has averaged 20.5 points per game and comes in off a 25 point performance against Washington. As for Lillard. he’s put up 24.4 points per game to go along with 7 assists per game.
