On Wednesday, March 3rd two teams jockeying for playoff positions in the Western Conference will meet as the Golden State Warriors will travel north to take on the Portland Trail Blazers at the Moda Center. The Warriors are ranked 8th in the standings at 19-16 while the Blazers are ranked 5th at 19-14. These two team played back to back games in January at Golden State as the Blazers won the first matchup 123-98 on January 1 while the Warriors won the second 137-122 on January 3. The teams have not met up since but I’m confident that Damian Lillard and the Blazers will be happy this go around is on their home court.
Portland Trail Blazers
The Portland Trail Blazers took on the Charlotte Hornets Monday night looking to end a four game losing streak. They did that in a big way, beating the Charlotte 123-111. Portland shot 53% and made a franchise record 24 three-pointers while shooting 52% from three. Damian Lillard made 6 of them on his way to a double double with 23 points and 10 assists.
Robert Covington had a double double of his own with 21 points plus 10 rebounds and it was a vintage performance from Carmelo Anthony who dropped 29 points for his season high.
The Blazers continued to be a depleted team as injured stars CJ McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic plan to get their results this week. They will not be back for this game but their return will be coming soon.
Golden State Warriors
The Golden State Warriors ran into a buzz saw Sunday night in primetime against the LA Lakers. The Lakers had lost 4 of their last 5 games whereas the Warriors had been rolling with 3 straight wins which probably motivated the Lakers to start the game like they did. Los Angeles jumped out to a 20 point first quarter lead, a 30 point half time lead, and rolled to a 117-91 victory. Golden State shot just 8/34 (23.5%) from 3PT range, an abnormality for the accustomed hot shooting team. Steph Curry had an off night as he only shot 5/15 total including 2/7 from 3PT for only 16 points. Eric Paschall was in fact the leading scorer with 18 points to go along with 4 rebounds.
The Warriors were winners of their 3 games prior which has helped them continue to hold onto their fringe playoff spot. Golden State will be put to the test as this will be game 2 in the midst of a 6 game gauntlet against teams currently ranked 5th place or higher in the Western Conference. Luckily, they will have a week off in between the stretch due to All-Star Weekend.

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction
These two teams split their back to back series in early January and are familiar foes due to their postseason success. They are also both currently sitting in a playoff position entering the midway mark of the season and will want to add another win to that column. Portland has been great ATS lately and are currently a slight underdog at home.
The Blazers are also second in the league in turnovers and the Warriors have major problems in that category. They rank 24th in the NBA and turned it over 20 times in a loss to the Lakers. Portland is also the better rebounding team and the combination of turnovers and rebounds will give the Blazers more shots, more opportunities to score, and allow them to cover. Take Lillard and the Blazers to cover at home.
