Trail Blazers-Hornets Preview

(AP) -- Strong defensive play has helped key the Portland Trail Blazers' recent success, but they needed to rely on offense to extend the longest current winning streak in the NBA their last time out.

The Blazers seek their ninth straight victory when they visit the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday night.

Portland (11-3) came into its latest contest having allowed 88.8 points per game in its previous four victories, but suffered defensive lapses against winless Philadelphia and needed to rally from a two-point halftime deficit for a 114-104 victory Monday.
