The Portland Trail Blazers are looking to add to their wins in the regular season when they host the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Moda Center in the National Basketball Association.
Their battle is on April 9, 2016 at 10:30 PM ET.
Both Western Conference teams have a lot to look forward to despite only the Blazers making it to the post season this year as Minnesota have given their fans a lot to look forward to.
Their young core led by Andrew Wiggins, Karl Anthony Towns, Zach LaVine and Ricky Rubio seem set for the future of the Wolves and they may be a stronger team sooner than most expect.
They are at 27-52 at the moment but many believe that with continued improvement the Wolves may be a big surprise in the coming seasons.
Towns seems locked for the Rookie of the Year honors, while Wiggins is also turning into a true superstar in the league.
If only the Wolves can keep moving forward, then this young core may be lifting the franchise to new heights sooner than later.
On the other hand, the Blazers are easily the most surprising team this season.
With the loss of big stars like LaMarcus Aldridge early in the summer, many doubted the capacity of the Blazers to even make it to the eighth spot in the highly competitive Western Conference.
However, many forgot that Damian Lillard is one of the best point guards in the league and has led the team to reaching as high as fifth in the Western Conference – a place they currently hold with a 43-37 standing.
They are trying to hold off the Memphis Grizzlies who are only a half a game behind, and the Blazers are steadily showing that they are ready to silence the doubters and surprise the fans in the coming post season.
