Why should you bet on the Trail Blazers?
When these two teams last tangled up in Portland, the Trail Blazers won by a whopping 32 points. Damian Lillard has become a dominant scorer in his own right, dropping 41 points on a plucky Washington team. He has scored 20 or more points in the last 15 games, which is the second longest streak in the league. C.J. McCollum continues to be a strong accompaniment to Lillard, as he added 18 points for the Trail Blazers’ cause. Portland is now in sixth place in the West and continues to build momentum.
Why should you put your money on Golden State?
You can be sure that the Warriors remember that 32-point hide-tanning they took up in Portland, and you can also be sure that the upset loss they suffered to the Lakers a few games ago is also squarely in their consciousness. Steph Curry continues to drain shots from all over the court; he nailed a 55-foot shot to beat the halftime buzzer in their win over the Jazz, and the team has now won 46 straight regular season games at home. Even though Curry only had a dozen points on the night, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green picked up the slack with 23 and 17 points, respectively.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
I like the Warriors to get revenge and nail down that 47th straight home win. I’m picking them to beat Portland, 118-111.
