The Portland Trailblazers have aspirations of making the playoffs again in the West this year. The team is currently six games over .500 and recently beat the Utah Jazz 100-81. The Phoenix Suns are the complete opposite from the Trailblazers.
The Suns are front runners for the worst team in the NBA this season, and carry a record of 18 wins and 41 losses this year.
The last time the Trailblazers and Suns took the court against each other, was January 16th. The Blazers got the win, 118-111. The Trailblazers lead the season series, 3-0.
The Portland Trailblazers are one of the best teams in the NBA this season, and are playing for a playoff spot in the Western conference. Portland came out of the All Star break with something to prove.
The team has talent, but seem to be one player away from taking the next step.
If the Trailblazers can’t seem to pull it together, the team must go after a legit big man in the off-season. If not, the team will continue to struggle being a top tier team in the West. Damian Lillard is a top ten point guard in the NBA. His ability to score and create, always give the Trailblazers a fighting chance to win.
Aside from the play of Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum is another big reason why the team is always in the playoffs. His leadership and long range shooting, make Portland one of the most dangerous back-court’s in the NBA this year.
If the Trailblazers back-court gets it going early, expect a big game from the star duo.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Trailblazers are allowing 103.6 points per game this year. Good enough to rank Portland seventh in the NBA in points allowed this season.
If Portland can continue to be a top 10 defense, the Trailblazers are going to be a difficult out in the playoffs.
As the back-court of Portland goes, so does the rest of the team. Look for Portland to give Phoenix issues early and often in this one.
The Phoenix Suns are arguably the worst team in the NBA this season hands down. If there was a definition for tanking, the Suns would be an example of how obvious it is to blow a season.
The Suns have lost all three matchups against Portland this year, and don’t seem to be looking for wins.
Three point Champion, and one of the best scorers in the NBA Devin Booker, is the best player on the team this year. He has been hobbled with a hip injury for some of the first part of the year. Booker is averaging over 24 points per game, and leads the team in scoring again this season.
Look for the Suns to struggle in this game. The team is allowing 113.1 points per game this year, and ranks them 30th in the NBA in points allowed this year.
Not being able to play good team defense, is one of the main issues Phoenix needs to address. If they can’t get better on defense, Phoenix is going to be bad for a long time.

Free Portland Trailblazers vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
The backcourt for the Trailblazers ins going to have to show up on the road. Expect Damian Lillard to go for 35 plus points and McCollum to do the same. This one could get ugly early.
If the Suns give up 128 points or more again in this game, Phoenix is going to get blown out. Expect Phoenix to struggle at home. TJ Warren will need 30 or more to keep this one close.
