The Portland Trail Blazers take on the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday, with MVP candidate Damian Lillard suiting up for this contest. With him, new addition Norman Powell and CJ McCollum in the lineup, Portland has looked impressive over their current three-game winning streak.

Powell has shot 50% or better from the 3-point line in his two contests as a member of the Trail Blazers so far. Slowing down the number of attempts he's able to get up from outside will go a long way in helping Detroit contain an explosive Portland offense.

Detroit has lost four of their last five games, but the lone win in that stretch came against the Toronto Raptors in their most recent game. In that victory, rookie Saban Lee went for 19 points and five assists.

The youth movement has actually worked well for Detroit, with head coach Dwane Casey unearthing some intriguing lineups that have aided the development of the youngsters, and even showcased the talent of some of the veteran players, such as center Mason Plumlee (10.3 PPG, 9.5 RPG).

Despite the encouraging signs from Detroit, our latest PRO Report suggests sharps are backing visiting Portland to put the Pistons back into the losing column in this affair.
