The Portland Trail Blazers (15-3), who surprisingly sit atop the Western Conference standings, will go for their seventh straight home win when they host the Oklahoma City Thunder (13-3) in today’s NBA Game of the Day. Portland is an impressive 7-1 at home and has not dropped a game at the Moda Center since falling to the Houston Rockets, 116-101, on November 5.
Since that loss, the Trail Blazers have won six straight at home, including a 106-102 victory over the league-leading Indiana Pacers on Monday night. Overall, Portland has won 12 of its 13 contests since that loss to the Rockets, including 11 straight immediately following the loss. The Trail Blazers hope that their success this season will help them end a losing streak to their Northwest Division rivals.
Oklahoma City, who is on an eight-game winning streak (the longest current streak in the NBA), has won the last seven matchups between these division rivals by an average of 12.6 points. The Thunder opened a three-game road trip with a 97-95 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night.
