Both of these teams are struggling to keep pace with Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers who are strong out of the gate and have the best record in the NBA at 10-1 after a few weeks of the 2017 season. Also on top of the standings, but in the East, are the reigning champion Cleveland Cavaliers who have 8 wins on one loss.
To catch up with LeBron James and the top teams in the league, all the Blazers have to do is keep scoring tons of points. When Portland runs the score over 100 points, they have won every game. Portland’s uptempo offense likes big numbers and they have routinely dropped 121 or 122 points in wins this season.
For the Rockets they will need to buckle down on defense if they are to have a shot at getting this home win. If Houston can contain some of the key shooters on Portland’s squad then a win should be in the bag. This will be an exciting contest and good luck to both squads.
