Portland Trail Blazers vs. New Orleans Pelicans basketball match of NBA tournament on March 19

On March 19, "Portland" will again host "New Orleans", so we have prepared a prediction for this event. Will the recent scenario be repeated? Find out below.

Portland Trail Blazers

The "Blazers" try to keep the bar high and keep up with the top teams in the Western Conference. Terry Stotts' wards have already come up to the fifth position and this cannot but please.

In the last meeting, "Portland" snatched an extremely important victory from "New Orleans" in the last seconds (125:124). Damian Lillard helped his team to make a comeback because six minutes before the end of the match the "Trails" were 17 points behind, but during this time the star point guard scored 18 points, thereby turning the tide of the game. Still, the "Blazers" should not relax, as soon they will have to face the "Pelicans" again.

New Orleans

Again, we have to return to the statement that Stan Van Gundy has a wonderful squad, young and promising players, but the game is still not going well. Also, the team needs to work on the ability to maintain the result, as very often victories are lost at the end of the fights.

For instance, in the last meeting, "New Orleans" lost in the last seconds to "Portland" (124:125), and all because the defense could not keep only Damian Lillard.

There is no doubt that the "Pelicans" are more furious than ever, so the next match against the "Blazers" will be aggressive, as the guests want revenge.

Our Prediction

"Portland" demonstrated an excellent game in the last meeting and Damian Lillard singled out, fully dealing with the role of the leader on the floor. "New Orleans" did everything right but relaxed in the end. In our opinion, Stan Van Gundy's wards will no longer make such a mistake and will manage to take revenge.

The "Blazers" understand that closing in their own half is not an option, because the "Pelicans" will press with all their might, so we are waiting for a productive and spectacular fight.

Our prediction is the victory of the "New Orleans Pelicans", taking into account OT for a coefficient of 2.04 on 1xbet.
