Los Angeles Clippers vs Portland Trail Blazers
The Blazers will welcome the Clippers to Moda Center as the Blazers are coming off a loss against the Warriors while the Clippers were able to take down Memphis in overtime. Game tips off at 9:00 PM ET.
Los Angeles Clippers 's Latest Performance :
The Clippers are coming off a gutsy win against Memphis as they were able to make the comeback from the fourth quarter and win the game in overtime. With that win put the Clippers in the first place of the West. Montrezl Harrell continues to impress as he scored 22 points with 11 rebounds He made a big impact in overtime with five points as the Clippers held on for a win. Harrell saw some power forward minutes for the second game in a row, but he’s still easily the most reliable center option on the Clippers. He’s having a breakout season and is showing no signs of slowing down. Gallinari chipped in with 20 points as he made all of his three free throws to send the game into overtime. He shooting 95% from the line this season. Playing against the Blazers would mean Bradley, Gilgeous-Alexander, and Beverly will have to bring their A-game on defense as they look to shut down Lillard and McCollum.
Portland Trail Blazers's Latest Performance :
The Blazers are coming off a loss against the Warriors as they failed to hand the Warriors their 5th straight loss, Durant and Thompson come through for the Warriors. With that loss saw the Blazers fall to 6th place in the Western Conference they have now lost two games in a row. The Blazers got another no-show from its bench in this one, only managing to squeeze a measly 19 points out of the second unit, much of which after the outcome had already been decided. Lillard finished the game with 23 points as he shot 9-for-24 from the floor. He will face a tough challenge in his next game as he will be going up against Bradley who has returned from injury. The Blazers depend on Lillard and CJ scoring output to be successful. The Blazers bench will have to do a better job if they want to snap their two-game losing streak.

Against The Spread Selection: Los Angeles Clippers
My reason for the pick :
The Clippers will win their second straight game handing the Blazers their third straight loss. The Clippers have too many weapons on offense at the moment and it will be very tough for the Blazers to keep up in this one. Harrell will continue to power his way through opponents while the Harris and Galo should get to their spot in this game. For the Blazers, it will be tough for them to win this game at home because their two scorers will be shut down by the Clippers backcourt as from what happened last postseason Lillard struggles to score when he has a lockdown defender on him. Go with the Clippers in this game as they extend their lead on top of the Western Conference.
