The Portland Trail Blazers are back home from a successful six-game road trip. Who would have thought the Blazers could go 4-2 on the road without Damian Lillard? Just five weeks ago, the Blazers were sitting on one win on the road for the entire season. Now back at Moda for a brief two game stand, the Blazers have an opportunity to win their third game in a row and their third in a row at home.
The Minnesota Timberwolves aren’t yet the finished article, but they are pretty good and getting better. Winners of seven out of their last ten games, the Timberwolves can beat any team on their day.
