I like this matchup. Philly is in the playoffs so there is not a ton to play for other than to see how they play without Ben Simmons.
Portland has been one of the teams people are buzzing about in the bubble. They are playing much better and look like a real sleeper, though they have some more work to do.
Portland is playing on a back to back so fatigue could be a factor. Something to think about in game for sure.
The 76ers are perfect for clickbait. It seems like there is always something new to grab attention. Right now it is playing without Ben Simmons.
With Simmons on the sidelines, they are still able to play big, they have just put Al Horford back into the starting lineup next to Joel Embiid.
Even without Simmons the 76ers have plenty of size but their backcourt is less dynamic. Shake Milton is doing his best but he is not a traditional point guard.
Milton and Josh Richardson are going to have their hands full with one of the best scoring backcourt in the NBA. How they do defensively will be critical.
Portland Trail Blazers
Portland is not totally healthy but having Jusuf Nurkic back makes them a lot better then when Hassan Whiteside was their primary big man.
Zach Collins plays the four at 7 feet so the Blazers have lots of size up front. Collins can shoot pretty well too and it looks like he is going to be a player in the league.
I love the fact that there is still a lace in the league for Carmelo Anthony. He is averaging 15ppg for the Blazers and making 38% of his threes on good volume. As a third option he can be deadly.
Gary Trent Jr is also proving to be a decent player. He has really blossomed in his second year in the league and has been a deadly 43% from behind the arc.
Damian Lillard has been one of the best players in the bubble. The way they are playing right now I hope he can get them into the playoffs. They can be really dangerous if they get there.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Portland Trail Blazers NBA Prediction:
The Blazers are on a back to back here and they kind of folded in the second half against the Clippers on Saturday. That really increases the urgency.
I think they are the better team anyway so combine those two and I have to go with the Blazers here. If they get down early though they might not fight it.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Blazers ATS
Although the 76ers 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.
