Prediction

The Trail Blazers are coming from a great game at home against the Lakers where they beat them 127-115. The Wizards are coming from a loss against the warriors on the road and have lost 7 of their last 8 games against the Blazers. Both teams will be playing on b2b games but the Wizards had to travel from San Francisco and already lost against Portland so I'm going with the Blazers at home.
