Portland Trail Blazers vs Chicago Bulls
Tip: Portland Trail Blazers (-5,5 AH) — Odd: 1,67
FT: 124:108 (WON) (WON) (WON)
Yesterday Portland won pretty easily against LA Clippers with 104:96 and tonight they will have another game. They are lucky, because like yesterday, their opponent will have some absences and here I expect another easy and comfortable win for Portland.
Portland have 28-22 so far and they are sixth in western conference. They have three consecutive wins and for sure will be fully motivated this series to be continued. Like I said this will be b2b game for them, but before that they had three days for a rest, so I doubt that they will affect on them. Like I said before, their defense is much better in this season, they have two great players, solid roster and for sure will be in playoffs. All players are available for them and here I expect Portland to win by double digits.
Chicago have 18-31 and they are on the last places in esatern conference. They have one average team, nothing special, with few interesting, young players (two for them will not play tonight). Their starting playmaker Dunn got injury before several days and he is out. He has average 13,7 PPG, 6,3 APG and 4,6 RPG. ANother young player, the rookie Markkanen will not play due personal reasons. He had great numbers for one rookie and for sure he can be one really good player. He has average 15,3 PPG and 7,7 RPG. Another important player, experienced and their best scorer Nikola Mirotic is questionable for this game. His status is unknown and his chances are 50-50. He is their leader in points with average 16,8 per game.
They played in this season before one month in Chicago where Portland won with 124:120 in overtime. But, in that game Chicago had Dunn (22 points), Markkanen (19 points) and Mirotic (18 points), they were their best scorers in that game, while Portland was without Lillard, their main player.
Here, I expect Portland to win this game by double digits. Good luck !
