The Hornets have recently managed to become a more coherent basketball team, but we definitely don’t expect the Moda Center Stadium to be an easy away game for them.
The Charlotte Hornets and Portland Trail Blazers will battle on Monday evening, hosted at the Moda Center in Portland.
The Blazers recently took a tough 120-107 loss against Denver, where Damian Lilliard was not really able to pull off a miracle in the 4th quarter of the game.
The Hornets are coming with quite some momentum, thanks to a high scoring affair against the Los Angeles Lakers that finished 134-130.
The Charlotte Hornets have yet to grab a double-digit win total this time around through the 33 games already played, however in their recent bouts, Charlotte has come closer against several teams. Taking 2 wins, one against the Los Angeles Lakers 134-130 and one against the Sacramento Kings 125-119. The other matches have ended in losses but closer than expected, the closest one being a 115-119 loss against the Denver Nuggets.
The Portland Trail Blazers have lost some confidence recently thanks to losing 3 games in a row. Portland is extremely thankful to finally be back at home, however, after a total of 6 games in a 9 day road trip through the Western Conference, we don’t expect them to be in full shape right now. While playing at the Moda Center, the Blazers have won 3 out of their last 4 matches.
Portland will most likely play without Justise Winslowdue to an ankle injury. While Charlotte currently does not have game deciding injuries.
This game is a shaky one, however the opportunity Charlotte has coming into this match is undeniable. After taking a huge win against the Los Angeles Lakers, and now facing an unconfident team in Portland, we expect them to upset the home crowd this time around. We take a Charlotte win.
