Match Predict – Handicap (-8) for Trail Blazers
The Trail Blazers are the clear favourites to win this game. Even though the team’s current form is clearly unimpressive, that should be enough to defeat troubled Houston. Damian Lillard, who averages a career-high 31.4 points per game, is still in fine form. The teams are meeting for the third time this regular season. The Blazers won the previous two meetings (125-111 and 107-95).
Total Points Over 230
In the last ten meetings, Portland has not been very confident. There have been five victories. In that span, the team scored an average of 120.2 points per game while allowing their opponents to score 124.3.

Portland Trail Blazers:
The Portland Trail Blazers have won only once in their last four games. That came against the Los Angeles Lakers.
In their last loss against the Sacramento Kings, Billups’ men conceded 133 points. Little and Reddish combined for 50 points, but they did the Trail Blazers no good.

The Houston Rockets are on the verge of losing without any hope of improving their stats on the season. Eight straight defeats and utter hopelessness for Silas’ team.
The Texans could do nothing against a bleeding Golden State (116-101) in their last game. The best scorer for the Houston Rockets was Kenyon Martin Jr., who scored 22 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists.
The Rockets have 13 wins and 46 losses so far. There’s not much to look forward to in the game against the Portland Trail Blazers, as the last three head-to-head encounters have gone to the Oregon squad.
The Houston Rockets have lost 83.9% of their away games (5-26).
The Houston Rockets are averaging 109.5 points per game on the road.
Solid night for KJ Martin!
