POR vs MIA Dream11: Portland Trail Blazers will be looking to return to winning ways when they play hosts to Miami Heat in the NBA 2019-20 regular-season at Moda Center on Monday morning (IST).
Portland lost 114-117 to Utah Jazz in the last match and fell to 24-29 on the season. They are still outside the playoff spots in the Western Conference, two and a half games behind 8th-placed Memphis Grizzlies heading into this match.
Miami Heat will be keen to snap their two-game skid here as well. Both of those defeats came on the road and considering they will be playing four more away games, Heat know they have to respond to their away blues if they are to keep pace with the top three.
