The Portland Trail Blazers travel to the Fiserv Forum to battle the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday night. Here’s a Trail Blazers vs Bucks Prediction.

Portland Trail Blazers

The Portland Trail Blazers have been in a real slump as they were on an eight-game losing streak before they snapped out of it with a 121-105 win over the Jazz on Wednesday. Jerami Grant led the team with 30 points on 10 of 13 shooting, Malcolm Brogdon added 20 points with eight assists while Jabari Walker tallied 19 points with 10 rebounds off the bench. As a team, the Trail Blazers shot 51 percent from the field and 17 of 39 from the 3-point line as they played like a desperate team and dominated the first half by 65-46 to take a 32-point lead which allowed them to rest their starters early.

Portland Trail Blazers Player Facts

  • Jerami Grant ranks 24th amongst qualified players for points per game (22.8) this season.
  • Shaedon Sharpe ranks 15th amongst qualified Guards for rebounds per game (5.3) this season.

Milwaukee Bucks

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks have been in great shape as they've won six of their last seven games overall and they will be eager to stay hot after sneaking past the Wizards in a 131-128 win on Friday. Brook Lopez led the team with 39 points on 14 of 17 shooting while Giannis Antetokounmpo and Damian Lillard scored 31 points each. As a team, the Bucks shot 52 percent from the field and nine of 31 from the 3-point line as they did just enough to get past the Wizards, but it was far from convincing as they never led by more than seven points in this one.

Milwaukee Bucks Player Facts

  • Damian Lillard ranks 1st in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for FT% (92.1%) this season.
  • Brook Lopez ranks 2nd amongst qualified players for Blocks Per Game (2.9) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Bucks rank 2nd in the league for opponent steals per game this season (6.2).
  • The Bucks rank 29th in the league for opponent free throw percentage this season (84.0%).
  • The Trail Blazers rank 30th in the league for points per game this season (104.4).
  • The Trail Blazers rank 30th in the league for three-point percentage this season (32.4%).

Peter's Pick

The Trail Blazers are still shorthanded with Anfernee Simons and Justin Minaya still out, while the Bucks have ruled out Khris Middleton for this one. The Trail Blazers were able to snap out of their funk with a solid win in their last outing, but it's hard to get too excited about beating the lowly Jazz these days. The Bucks are the clear favorites at home and I don't think they're going to have too much trouble at home in this one.

Peter’s Pick Milwaukee -12.5
