Automated Insights

The Portland Trail Blazers will attempt to extend a nine-game winning streak when they play against the Golden State Warriors at ORACLE Arena. The Warriors have found success to start the year, entering today's game with a record of 8-5. Similarly, the visiting Trail Blazers also look to continue to move further above .500, entering today's game with an 11-2 record. This game has a start time of 10:30 pm EST and it will be covered by CSN-NW and CSN-BA.

After their 102-95 loss to the Lakers, the Warriors are looking to avoid a repeat performance. Harrison Barnes had the best performance for Golden State, scoring 20 points and adding 4 rebounds and 3 assists. Meanwhile, the Trail Blazers are coming off an exciting win over the Bulls, 98-95. Wesley Matthews was the team's top scorer, registering 28 points.

The high-octane offense of the Trail Blazers (fourth in the league with an offensive efficiency of 106.8) will try to exploit the porous defense of the Warriors (27th in the NBA with a defensive efficiency of 327.4), a matchup that should be advantageous to Portland.
