(SportsNetwork.com) - The Portland Trail Blazers can be seen around Rip City over the next seven games and will welcome the Philadelphia 76ers to town Friday night at the Moda Center.
The Trail Blazers will also host the New York Knicks, Toronto Raptors, Atlanta Hawks, Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat and Orlando Magic. The Blazers have won four in a row in the Pacific Northwest, where they are 12-2 this season.
Portland went 3-1 on a recent trip and closed the journey with Tuesday's 115-111 overtime victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder behind 40 points from Damian Lillard. Lillard was 11-of-21 shooting, handed out 11 assists and came down with six rebounds.
Lillard also buried 8-of-12 3-pointers and has scored 40-plus points twice in the past four games.
LaMarcus Aldridge and Wesley Matthews scored 25 and 22 points, respectively, for the Blazers, who overcame a 10-point hole late in regulation, scored 17 of the 30 points in overtime and finished 17-of-31 from beyond the arc.
"Our team never quits," Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. "We believe we can win every game, regardless of the situation."
Stotts' group is 6-1 in the second game of back-to-backs and 18-2 when reaching 100 or more points.
Portland has won six of its last seven games and will try to improve its 12-1 record against Eastern Conference foes Friday night.
In injury news for Portland, forward Nicolas Batum (wrist) is questionable Friday night and did not play against OKC.
All four of Philadelphia's wins this season have come on the road.
The 76ers are 2-0 so far on a seven-game road trip, which began with a Sunshine State sweep of the Orlando Magic and Miami Heat. In Tuesday's 91-87 come-from-behind victory in South Beach, a big second half catapulted the visitors to victory.
Philadelphia had a 49-30 scoring advantage over the final two quarters and used a 14-4 run to open the fourth stanza. Miami came within two at 89-87 and missed its final seven shot attempts.
Michael Carter-Williams and Luc Mbah a Moute scored 20 and 19 points, respectively, for the Sixers, who had an 18-9 scoring edge in the fourth quarter and have won two in a row following a five-game skid.
"We have good momentum," Sixers rookie Nerlens Noel said. "We're confident."
The Sixers, who sit last with 91.4 ppg, are 4-9 on the road and will also visit the Utah Jazz, Golden State Warriors, Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Clippers on the junket.
On the injury front for Philly, guards Tony Wroten (knee) and Hollis Thompson (illness) are questionable Friday.
Portland defeated Philadelphia, 114-104, on Nov. 24 in south Philly and was led by Aldridge's 33 points and 11 rebounds. Carter-Williams ended with 24 points in that one for the 76ers. The Blazers are averaging 117.3 ppg in the last three matchups in this series.
Aldridge is posting an average of 27.3 points and 13.7 rebounds in his last three appearances against the 76ers.
