Who’s Playing

Miami @ Portland

Current Records: Miami 27-25; Portland 31-21

What to Know

This Sunday, the Portland Trail Blazers are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 115.06 points per matchup. They are getting right back to it as they host the Miami Heat at 10 p.m. ET April 11 at Moda Center at the Rose Quarter. If the game is anything like the Trail Blazers’ 125-122 victory from their previous meeting in March, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.

Portland didn’t have too much trouble with the Detroit Pistons at home this past Saturday as they won 118-103. Portland can attribute much of their success to center Enes Kanter, who dropped a double-double on 30 boards and 24 points.

Meanwhile, even if it wasn’t a dominant performance, Miami beat the Los Angeles Lakers 110-104 this past Thursday. It was another big night for Miami’s small forward Jimmy Butler, who had 28 points and five assists along with seven rebounds.

Their wins bumped Portland to 31-21 and the Heat to 27-25. We’ll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when the Trail Blazers and Miami clash.
