The Washington Wizards find themselves out of the bottom of the barrel with their recent three game winning streak. They will come to their next game against the Portland Trail Blazers with a 9-17 record and ironically, all of their wins are on the road. Bradley Beal has just been named as a starter for the NBA Eastern Conference in the NBA All-Star Game and that acknowledges how he has been playing lately. Russell Westbrook has been dropping triple-doubles again to compliment Beal while the rest of the team adjusted to their life without center Thomas Bryant. This team has Rui Hachimura stepping up to become a potent third scoring option.

The Portland Trail Blazers are without C.J. McCollum for the past weeks but they activated “Dame Time” from Damian Lillard who had just been named as the starter for the NBA Western Conference in the upcoming NBA All-Star Game.

The Trail Blazers found a good boost from Gary Trent Jr. who has stepped up and became the second-best scorer for the team while also getting quality minutes from Enes Kanter at the center position. The team’s depth has been showing and players are willing to step up.
