An early Saturday start for the Los Angeles Clippers and Portland Trail Blazers features clubs both looking to help their playoff seeding.
The Clippers want to cement the second seed where they currently reside with a 1.5 game padding over the Denver Nuggets. The Blazers are hot on the heels of Grizzlies for the eighth seed. Portland trails Memphis by 1.0 game in the loss column.
This is the third meeting between the clubs this season with the Clippers winning both previous matches.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers are 2-2 through four ‘seeding’ games in the bubble. They’ve lost to the Lakers and Suns and garnered wins against Pelicans and Mavericks.
LA has been integrating players back into fold throughout their time in Orlando as players arrived late or had to leave and return. Landry Shamet and Ivica Zubac dealt with positive COVID-19 tests prior to joining the bubble.
Patrick Beverley, Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell all left Orlando on team excused exits with only Harrell still out.
In the win over Dallas three Clippers scored 20 points or more led by Kawhi Leonard with 29 and was joined by his All-Star teammate Paul George who scored 24. Zubac delivered a double-double of 21 points and 15 rebounds.
Portland Trail Blazers
With both Jusuf Nurkic and Zach Collins back healthy the Blazers don’t look like a typical low-seeded team and seem destined to land that eighth seed.
The question is whether they’ll finish the seeded games in eighth or in ninth since they are only one game back of overtaking the Grizzlies. That move was postponed by the Grizzlies first win on Thursday as they beat the Thunder.
Portland is 3-1 in their seeding games having defeated the Grizzlies, Rockets, and Nuggets with their lone loss versus the Celtics in a game that came down to the wire.
In the win over Denver, Damian Lillard had his most effective and efficient game delivering a double-double of 45 points and 12 assists and shot 13 of 21 which included eleven 3-pointers.
Gary Trent Jr. continues to be one of the bright spots in Orlando scoring 27 points in the match while Nurkic added 22 and CJ McCollum pitched in with 13 points.

Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Portland Trail Blazers NBA Prediction:
.This lengthy frontcourt is a good challenge for the Clippers to test their lineup against as they work in Marcus Morris and Joakim Noah while Harrell remains out.
Portland’s vaunted backcourt will have to deal with pesky defender Patrick Beverley and two of the best two-way defenders in the association with Leonard and George likely both spending time defending them.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Blazers plus points
Although the Clippers are the deeper squad Portland is approaching each game in playoff mode. This one could go either way but Lillard is bound and determined to get his squad that eighth seed so this match should have a playoff feel to it.
