Will Damian Lillard and the Portland Trailblazers continue their winning ways?
Will Damian Lillard and the Portland Trailblazers continue their winning ways?

The in-form Portland Trailblazers take their 7-3 record on the road to take on the downtrodden Charlotte Hornets.

The key to the Portland resurrection is a strong inside-outside combination led by Damian Lillard. The Hornets have some key contributors, but they lack a face of the franchise and leadership.

Can the Trailblazers keep their momentum going, or will the Hornets turn their season around?

The betting odds and predictions are below:

Portland Trailblazers-4.5 (-110)O 219 (-110)
Charlotte Hornets+4.5 (-110)U 219 (-110)

Damian Lillard continues to pace the Blazers with 29 points per game. Lillard also clips in five rebounds and five assists per game. With the newfound balance on the team, Lillard doesn't have to do it all.

Anfernee Simons continues to develop as a secondary player to Lillard. Simons has always had dynamism but has lacked consistency in his game. He is scoring at a remarkable clip, 22 points per game while contributing four assists per night.

Jerami Grant is giving the frontcourt some punch that has been missed in the past. Grant is scoring 18 points per game.

Jusuf Nurkic is averaging a double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds every time he steps on the court.

PG Terry Rozier leads the way for the Hornets with 22 points, six rebounds, and six assists per night. Staying on the court for the Hornets has been the issue for Rozier, who has only suited up for four games this season.

Kelly Oubre Jr. is a streaky shooter but can get hot anytime. Oubre scores 18 points per game.

Gordon Hayward has contributed in multiple categories with 17 points, four rebounds, and four assists.

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Charlotte Hornets Best Pick:

The Charlotte Hornets are a plucky group, but they don't have anyone on the roster that can check Damian Lillard. While the Blazers don't ask Damian Lillard to carry them anymore, this number seems pretty low. Lillard should clear 24.5 points. Take the Over.

Damian Lillard; Pts: Over 24.5

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Charlotte Hornets Final Prediction

West Coast teams coming to the East Coast can lay an egg. Charlotte doesn't have enough firepower to keep pace with a Portland team that has figured it out. Take the Blazers.
