It’s the first game after the All Star Break on Thursday night.
The Portland Trailblazers travel to Orlando to take on the Magic.
This is the second meeting between the two teams this year. Orlando won the first match up 115-109.
To say the Portland Trailblazers have had a disappointing season would be an understatement.
After being the surprise team of the season last year, people expected them to compete for a top four spot this year. But that just hasn’t happened it looks like they will spend the last few months of the season fighting to just get in the playoffs.
Hopefully they come out of the break a different team or it could be a long last few months. They lost the three games going into the break.
The Trailblazers are a good team on the offensive side of the ball. They average 107 points per game well shooting 45.3 percent from the field.
But they struggle on the defensive side of the ball. They give up 110 points per game and opposing teams shoot 45.4 percent from the field.
The Blazers have struggled on the road this season, registering a record of 9-20.
Much the Trail Blazers the Orlando Magic have really struggled this season. With a new coach to start the season people expected Orlando to surprise teams and maybe even compete for a playoff spot.
But that has not happened this year and it looks like it will go down as another wasted season, unless they are able to pull off a big trade before the deadline.
The Magic come into this game having won three of their last seven games. A lot of their problems this season have come on the offensive side of the ball.
There is nights nothing seems to fall for the Magic and they only score 70 or 80 points. Not many teams will win scoring that few of points.
For the Magic to win they need to come out hot on the offensive side of the ball. They need to play well and score a lot of points, because Portland will get theirs.
