    Fansided: Game Preview: The Portland Trail Blazers Hope to Gain Momentum Against the Surging Timberwolves

    After losing six out of their last seven games, the Portland Trail Blazers picked up the victory against the last-place Phoenix Suns on Thursday. Although defeating the Suns should not inspire too much confidence, it is a step in the right direction. They will look to continue to build the positive momentum tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

    The Timberwolves have won seven of their last ten games and have surprisingly been a much better team since trading Jimmy Butler. Led by Robert Covington, the Timberwolves are a now a strong defensive team.

    Fansided: Minnesota Timberwolves: 3 things to watch vs. Portland Trail Blazers

    The season isn't quite a third of the way over, but Saturday night brings the third of four meetings between the Portland Trail Blazers and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

    The Wolves and Blazers first faced off in Portland back in early November as Minnesota kicked off a five-game road trip in which they lost every game. Jimmy Butler was traded after the 0-5 West Coast swing, and the Wolves have gone 9-3 since the move.

    For their part, Portland started the season hot at 10-3 but has gone 4-8 since that point and had lost six of their last seven before blowing out the lowly Phoenix Suns at home on Thursday night.

    NBA

    The Game

    The Wolves are hot, the Blazers are... to be determined. The Wolves have won six of seven while the Blazers have won just two of their last seven.

    Portland absolutely destroyed the Suns on Thursday night but nevertheless has been underperforming--a win over arguably the worst team in the league doesn't do a ton to quell that feeling. Additionally, C.J. McCollum is nursing an ankle injury. If he is unable to go Portland might not be able to muster enough offense to overcome the Wolves' stout defense.

    Nevertheless, the Wolves can't afford to take Portland lightly, especially on the road.
