What you need to know about the Trail Blazers

The Trail Blazers' recent rough patch got a bit rougher on Sunday after their eighth straight defeat. They fell 93-80 to the Charlotte Hornets. The Trail Blazers' loss came about despite a quality game from Deandre Ayton, who dropped a double-double on 26 points and 19 rebounds. Less helpful for the Trail Blazers was Anfernee Simons' abysmal 0-8 three-point shooting.

Even though they lost, the Trail Blazers smashed the offensive glass and finished the game with 22 offensive rebounds (they're ranked fifth in the NBA in offensive rebounds per game overall). The Trail Blazers are 11-17 against the spread in their last 28 games when at home. Anfernee Simons leads the team in scoring at 22.5 points per game. See which team to pick here.
