LA Clippers vs Portland Trail Blazers Preview

Two Western Conference contenders collide overnight when the LA Clippers entertain Portland in favouring the hosts' hosts on paper. They have two of the league's best players in Kawhi Leonard and Paul George - both healthy and didn't need to exert themselves much in a blowout win over their rival Lakers this past weekend.

At the very least, this encounter should be more competitive: Damian Lillard is averaging 29.6 points per game on 44.8 FG% and has his backcourt partner CJ McCollum back after an untimely fractured wrist in January. 

Although questions remain over the depth and overall quality at Terry Stotts' disposal, Lillard has shown he's capable of carrying them through tricky moments on multiple occasions - the question is whether the supporting cast is as decisive in key moments, particularly when he's being hurried off-ball or his shot isn't falling.  

They'll be without Jusuf Nurkic (knee) while Derrick Jones Jr (quad) is doubtful to feature, two big men who would otherwise have an impact on how this clash is settled - at least in terms of defence and rebounding. 

LA Clippers vs Portland Trail Blazers Betting Tips

Considering how they were effortlessly outmuscled by Giannis Antetokounmpo and co last week in a tough loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, I'm inclined to back a Clippers victory here. ESPN's BPI predicts a home win (61.8%), and while McCollum's scoring efficiency is an x-factor to consider, that's where the smart money is.
