Through 3 Quarters

The Portland Trail Blazers typically have all the answers at home, but the Cleveland Cavaliers are posing a tough problem. Sitting on a score of 87-79, the Cavaliers have looked like the better squad out there today, but there’s still one more quarter to play.

Cleveland has been led by point guard Darius Garland, who so far has shot 5-for-6 from downtown and has recorded 19 points and eight assists. One thing to keep an eye out for is Dean Wade’s foul situation as he currently sits at four.

Rip City has been relying on the performance of shooting guard Norman Powell, who has 22 points.

the Trail Blazers have lost 100% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this year, so this one seems just about wrapped up

Current Records: Portland 3-4; Cleveland 4-4

What to Know

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be returning home after a five-game road trip. They will take on the Portland Trail Blazers at 7 p.m. ET Wednesday at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. The Cavaliers will be strutting in after a win while Portland will be stumbling in from a defeat.

Things were close when Cleveland and the Charlotte Hornets clashed on Monday, but Cleveland ultimately edged out the opposition 113-110. Cleveland’s center Jarrett Allen looked sharp as he dropped a double-double on 24 points and 16 rebounds in addition to three blocks.

Meanwhile, Rip City came up short against the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday, falling 113-103. Small forward Norman Powell (22 points), point guard Damian Lillard (20 points), and shooting guard CJ McCollum (20 points) were the top scorers for Portland.

The Cavaliers are expected to lose this next one by 5.5. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 5-2 against the spread when expected to lose.

Cleveland took a serious blow against Rip City when the two teams previously met in May, falling 141-105. Can Cleveland avenge their loss, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We’ll soon find out.
