In one of the matches of the regular NBA championship, the basketball players of "Utah" and "Portland" will come face to face. Will the favorite be able to win this duel? LiveResult.Ru evaluates the teams' chances of success.
Utah is successfully competing in the Western Conference this season. At the moment, the team is on the 3rd line in the standings, having 13 wins after 20 matches played. It is worth noting that in recent meetings, the "musicians" alternate between victories and defeats. After an unsuccessful confrontation with New Orleans, the hosts were able to take revenge on the Pelicans and defeated them with a solid advantage – 127:105.
Portland Trail Blazers
Portland is also performing at a solid level this season. At the moment, the team is on the 7th line in the Western Conference, with 10 wins in 20 meetings. After winning matches with Chicago, Philadelphia and Denver, the guests lost in face-to-face meetings to Sacramento (121:125) and Golden State (103:118). I would like to note that up to a certain point in each of these fights there was a fight on the floor.
Statistics and figures:
- The hosts are the favorites of the meeting;
- Utah has 3 wins in 5 games;
- Portland has 3 wins in 5 meetings;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 105:98 in favor of Portland.
Why don't we take a chance? Portland has been playing well in recent matches, while Utah cannot gain confidence and alternates wins with losses. This can play a bad joke with the "musicians". Let's take a chance and assume that the guests will win in this match.
