Portland Trail Blazers
Six wins in the last four games has Portland in sixth place in the Western Conference standing, in a tie with the short-handed Pelicans.
If Portland can get clear of Anthony Davis and New Orleans, it will set up a potential first round matchup with the San Antonio Spurs, who are still the three seed out West.
It really doesn’t matter, though. Portland is just so middling; it’s tiring to talk about. There’s nothing exciting. Damian Lillard made the all-star team! That’s the most exciting news out of Portland. Next year, it might be CJ McCollum. The Trail Blazers are good but they are nothing more than a one and done out West.
Those two guys combining to score 47 points per game this season is impressive, though. I’m not really sure what Portland is missing but it might not be talent. Instead, the Blazers need some identity inside. There are just a lot of soft bodies around the paint. Maybe if they got some edge, they could get to the next level. That backcourt is good enough.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers were New Orleans’ first opponent since DeMarcus Cousins got hurt. They went into NOLA and got a win, 112–103. Anthony Davis had 25 and 17 but Lou Williams did his thing off the bench with 22 points and Blake Griffin had 27 and 12.
Tyrone Wallace is a new name in La-La Land. The former Cal Golden Bear has worked his way into the Clippers’ starting five and he performed well on Sunday, dropping 19 points in his ninth start of the season.
The latest report on DeAndre Jordan is that he and the Clippers are far from coming to an agreement on a contract extension. The distance between the two sides will only add traction to the trade talks, unless the talks are what has the two sides so far apart. Either way, it just feels more and more likely that Jordan’s days in a Clippers’ uniform are numbered.

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction: I give the edge to the home court between two teams that play well at home.
I see these teams on pretty even footing, with both sides playing much better at home than they do on the road. It should be high-scoring and fast-paced with lots of points coming from Lillard, McCollum and Williams. I’ll take the Clippers by five.
