(AP) -- The Portland Trail Blazers have overcome some adversity to keep their win streak intact. They'll try to extend it by continuing their recent dominance over a team that's experienced its own hardships.
If two of their top players are out again, the visiting Chicago Bulls could have a considerable challenge trying to snap the rested Blazers' five-game run and end a six-game losing streak in the series Friday night.
Portland has pulled off sizable comebacks in two of its last four games. It rallied from 16 points down in the third quarter for a 102-93 win over visiting New Orleans on Monday. The Blazers (8-3) also came back from a 23-point deficit in a 102-100 victory against Charlotte on Nov. 11.
