The Portland Trail Blazers and the Miami Heat will both be gunning for a victory on Sunday when they meet at American Airlines Arena.

ABOUT THE TRAIL BLAZERS (31-37): Saturday marked the return of veteran swingman Evan Turner, who missed more than a month of action with a fractured right hand. Turner made just 1-of-9 shots in 18 minutes but he managed eight rebounds — including a team-high four on the offensive end — and three assists. Lillard is averaging 32.8 points during his last five games and has made all 33 of his foul shots over a four-game span.

ABOUT THE HEAT (34-35): Center Hassan Whiteside scored 23 points in Friday’s win and he was matched by reserve guard Tyler Johnson, who led a 60-point showing by the Miami bench. “These guys are very hungry,” Whiteside told reporters. “A lot of these guys, we got them out of the jungle. These guys have been written off in the NBA.” James Johnson chipped in 17 points and six assists off the bench and he has scored in double figures in five straight games.

Oddsmakers currently have the Heat listed as 6-point favorites versus the Trail Blazers, while the game’s total is sitting at 211½.

The Miami Heat will try to extend a long home winning streak and return to .500 for the first time in more than four months when they host the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday. Friday’s 123-105 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves gave the Heat seven consecutive victories at AmericanAirlines Arena and pulled the team — once 19 games below .500 — to within a game of the even mark.

“Probably anybody could have followed our team when we went on all those championship runs, but this is a totally different group,” coach Erik Spoelstra told reportsts Friday. “The enthusiasm, the passion to follow this team probably matches that — and I think that’s pretty cool.” Miami lost at Portland on Dec. 3 to fall to 7-13 and kick off a 4-18 slide, but its remarkable turnaround has given Spoelstra’s squad a one-game advantage on Detroit in the race for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The Trail Blazers are in the midst of a playoff push of their own, winning for the seventh time in nine games with a victory at Atlanta on Saturday. Damian Lillard led six players in double figures with 27 points as Portland pulled within 1 1/2 games of the eighth and final playoff spot in the West.

Miami won its last outing, a 123-105 result against the Timberwolves on March 17. The Heat covered in that game as a -4-point favorite, while the 228 combined points took the game OVER the total.

Portland was a 113-97 winner in its last match on the road against the Hawks. They covered the +1.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 210 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
