The way Portland is preparing for the upcoming game is disgusting: The team has only won twice in its last ten games, both times coming at home against weak opponents like Charlotte (124-113) and Detroit (135-106).
The team dropped out of the play-in zone and ended up eleventh in the Western Conference standings because of its poor performance. However, when making a prediction for Portland, it’s important to keep in mind that the Blazers won four of their last five home games.
Cleveland’s play remains unstable: In its final nine games, the club managed to win four. The Cavaliers fell to fifth place in the Eastern Conference standings due to such disappointing results.
Additionally, Cleveland’s tendency to begin to falter in away games should be taken into consideration when making a prediction: only four victories in 15 matches played at rival venues.
Jordan Clarkson’s three-pointer, flagrant foul free throw, and three-shot foul made it seven points on a seven-point possession with just over a minute left in their last game against the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Utah Jazz.
A Cavaliers team that has struggled on the road all season suffered yet another difficult defeat; Despite having the fourth-best net rating away from Rocket Morgage, they barely manage to secure the necessary road victories.
Cleveland will be put to the test once more on the road against the Portland Trail Blazers, who are in trouble and haven’t settled into the Western Conference.
After a successful beginning to the 2022-23 season, Portland has significantly cooled off; It has lost to Orlando, Minnesota, Indiana, and Toronto in a row. Obviously, that is not the most difficult four-game stretch.
There were exactly 30 games played between these teams in head-to-head matches, and the clubs won 15 of those matches themselves. It is important to keep in mind that Cleveland won the previous three meetings.
