Washington Wizards vs Orlando Magic (By: Raleone)
Both teams are scrathing for playoffs, especially Wizards who now need every win they can get.
Portis emerged as a primary big man in the lack of the same on the Wizards roster. He is powerful and plays with great confidence knowing that he is currently carrying Wizards frontcourt. Tonight he will also take 15+ shots as he has no other rival on his team for that spot. Vučević will trouble him a bit but he can go around this margin against him easily as Vooch isnt a defensive great. Portis can also strech the floor and knock down a three which can help Beal and Satoransky off the PnR. He will get his chances, and should use them.
A tough match is expected, with both teams needing a win, but Wizards need it more atm. Portis is a newcomer who adapted quickly with Wizards, and is posting up great numbers. He is averaging 20 over his last five, and is no stranger to grabbing double-doubles. Magic is a great team to prolong his nice string of good games on, and this looks like a great bet.
