Hawks vs Trail Blazers: Game Preview - Atlanta Hopes to Snap 7-Game Road Skid Tonight in Portland

The Atlanta Hawks look to snap their seven-game road losing streak tonight in Portland against the Trail Blazers. 

Atlanta has lost three straight and 11 of their last 12 overall.

Portland, on the other hand, is coming off a rare home loss on Monday, as they were beaten by the laughable Los Angeles Lakers 107-106.

This is the first meeting of the year between the Hawks and Blazers. They’ll only play against each other twice this season with the series finale on Thursday, March 27.

The Hawks are hoping to get back All-Star power forward Paul Millsap tonight, as he’s missed the last four games with a right knee contusion. 

It would be huge if Milsap returns, as he is the only player in the NBA this season averaging at least 16.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks. He’s currently averaging 17.6 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.1 blocks per game.
