The Portland Trail Blazers are on the road for an away trip to the Sacramento Kings from the Golden 1 Center on Wednesday evening. The Kings are on a four-game losing streak and Portland has won four straight.
Portland win four straight, move to 10-8Season form
The Trail Blazers have now recovered quickly by winning their last four games to move to 10-8 for the season. They beat the Denver Nuggets 119-100 in their previous game.
CJ McCollum scored 32 points for the Trail Blazers while Damian Lillard managed 25 points. The Blazers had 28 fast-break points and kept the Nuggets to just two in the same metric.
“I think we’re just figuring each other out,” McCollum said. “We have a new staff, a new structure, new principles. It takes time. Slowly but surely, we are getting better. We’re communicating better, we’re starting to understand more what Chauncey and our staff want.”

Kings lose four consecutivelySeason form
The Kings have not enjoyed a great season to date. In fact, they have lost their last four games to fall to 6-12 for the season. In their previous game, they were beaten 102-94 by a depleted 76ers team.
As reported by AP: Gentry was promoted to interim coach after the Kings fired Luke Walton on Sunday. Gentry most recently served as head coach for the New Orleans Pelicans (2015-20). He’s also had head coaching stops with Miami, Detroit, the Los Angeles Clippers and Phoenix.
“Bottom line, you have to step up and make shots,” Gentry said. “We got some good looks at it and we didn’t make them. That’s where we’ve kind of struggled. We played a team that had a lot of their starters missing and we didn’t get the job done.”
