Portland Trail Blazers
Above, we have posted the teams’ overall records this season. Those records could be misleading.
The novel coronavirus didn’t completely cancel what was the 2019-20 NBA season and start a new one but it did something to that effect, without rolling over another year of free agency.
That means Portland, which caught a lot of tough breaks early on and couldn’t ever seem to get ahead, got a chance to relax, reset and run things back with the healthy version of its roster.
So far, the restart has yielded results. The Blazers have defeated Memphis, Houston, Denver and Philly with narrow losses to Boston and the Clippers.
They are in the hunt for the eighth seed in the Western Conference playoffs and the Lakers would not like to see them get it.
Carmelo Anthony played 35 minutes in the victory over Philadelphia and scored 20 points. Damian Lillard hit for 51. Dallas’ defense won’t be as porous as Philadelphia’s but it will be hard-pressed to put a stop to the momentum Portland has built rather quickly.
Dallas just beat Milwaukee but its only prior victory came over Sacramento. It is now 2–3 in Orlando with a game on Monday night against Utah.
Neither Luka Doncic (ankle) nor Kristaps Porzingis (knee) will play in that game. Both played against the Bucks and may be back for the second game of the back-to-back. Stay posted.
Dallas’ injury list is already long. Dwight Powell went down earlier in the original regular season right as he was looking like more than a replacement-level player.
Jalen Brunson also suffered a season-ending injury as he was commanding more control of the offense, especially in the second unit.
Willie Cauley-Stein opted out of the post-coronavirus schedule with a newborn baby expected on the way.
If Doncic and/or Porzingis don’t play, Dallas will be a large underdog. Even if they do, however, I like Portland, which simply looks like the better side.
NBA Betting Trends:
- LAC are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall
- Over is 7-2 in DAL last 9 home games.
- Home team is 7-3-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
Free Portland Trail Blazers vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction: the Blazers win.
As I said above, I’m taking the Blazers, even with Doncic and Porzingis active. I wouldn’t be excited about laying points, however.
Without a combination of those guys, it could get ugly and I would certainly be willing to lay more than a few.
