The Portland Trailblazers have been a very good road team this season as the club enters play with a mark of 18-11 straight up on the highway. They are a hot team as they enter the stretch run of the regular season and prepare for the playoffs. Portland has won six of tier past seven games and has held six of their past seven opponents to under 100 points each resulting in victories. Portland has put together a good roster of players. Even in their down years their starting five was outstanding led by veteran LaMarcus Aldridge and Nicolas Batum helping to support the low post. The acquisition of point guard Damian Lillard filled a much needed void for the squad because prior to the arrival of Lillard the Trailblazers were heaving big issues with turnovers in the guard position. So the Trailblazers own two All Stars on their roster and they own an overall mark of 42-19 and are in a fight with the LA Clippers and Houston Rockets for the third seed out west. A missing piece that was improved on the 2013-14 club was the addition of bench help. It was no secret that Portland owned the worst bench of the league last year. They gave scoring from Mo Williams and have gotten production from Dorrell Wright as well. Dallas is an old team and enters the game on a three game losing streak. They seem to feast on the bad teams and when the Mavericks are forced to step up in competition they aren’t winning enough of those games.
