The Charlotte Hornets are gearing up to tackle ongoing challenges in Portland, aiming to break a 15-game road losing streak against the Trail Blazers this Sunday. The Rose City has been a persistent hurdle for the Hornets, with their last win dating back to March 29, 2008, during the Bobcats era.

Amid this struggle, the Hornets faced significant defeats, like the 112-68 loss on February 1, 2012. Recent encounters, such as last season's duel, witnessed the Hornets struggling, evident in a 124-113 loss despite a first-half lead.

Despite a recent loss to the Golden State Warriors, Coach Steve Clifford remains focused on solving offensive issues. He emphasized the need for more energy and determination, stressing unselfish play and inside-out strategies.

Without star player LaMelo Ball due to an ankle injury, reliance is placed on players like Miles Bridges, who contributed 19 points and 11 rebounds against the Warriors. However, rookie Brandon Miller's offensive struggles highlight the team's need for cohesion and speed.

The Trail Blazers face their own challenges, on a seven-game losing streak and dealing with injuries to key players like Scoot Henderson and Malcolm Brogdon. Coach Chauncey Billups remains optimistic, praising efforts from players like Jerami Grant and Anfernee Simons.

Recent roster adjustments, including signing Ashton Hagans for depth at point guard, aim to lift the Trail Blazers. Billups lauded Hagans for tenacity and playmaking, highlighting the team's determination to overcome adversity and regain victory.
