Who’s Playing

Dallas @ Portland

Current Records: Dallas 27-21; Portland 20-27

What to Know

The Portland Trail Blazers and the Dallas Mavericks will face off at 10 p.m. ET Jan. 26 at Moda Center at the Rose Quarter without much rest after finishing up games yesterday. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this game.

It was close but no cigar for Rip City as they fell 109-107 to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday. Despite the loss, Portland had strong showings from small forward Nassir Little, who had 20 points in addition to eight rebounds, and center Jusuf Nurkic, who posted a double-double on 20 points and 14 boards. That makes it six consecutive games in which Nurkic has had at least 11 rebounds.

Meanwhile,’s it’s hard to picture a worse defeat than the 130-92 bruising that Dallas suffered against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday. The Mavericks were down 97-78 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Power forward Kristaps Porzingis had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with only nine points on 4-for-15 shooting in his 25 minutes on the court.

Portland is expected to lose this next one by 4.5. They are currently three-for-three against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Portland is now 20-27 while Dallas sits at 27-21. A couple defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Rip City has allowed their opponents to shoot 47.30% from the floor on average, which is the second highest shooting percentage allowed in the league. The Mavericks’ defense has more to brag about, as they they rank third in the league when it comes to points allowed per game, with only 103.1 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked in their favor.
