Portland Trail Blazers
The Trail Blazers lost their first three games in the Carmelo Anthony era but have bounced back to win the next three.
Melo’s shooting splits tell some of that story: fifteen of forty-four in the first three losses and twenty-seven of forty-seven in the last three wins.
Two of those three wins were against the Bulls, who didn’t have a guy who could check Anthony’s physicality and knowledge of how to score. The other win came against the Thunder, which used Danilo Gallinari on him.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers should be able to bottle Melo up with Kawhi Leonard, Paul George or Maurice Harkless. If Anthony throws up fifteen shots in this game, he won’t be efficient.
But then consider what Los Angeles can do against Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. Patrick Beverley will always be with one, which leaves Leonard, George or Harkless to take the other (of course, one will also have to cover Rodney Hood), unless Lou Williams is in the game.
In the first matchup between these teams, also in Los Angeles, Lillard and McCollum went for twenty-two apiece. Hassan Whiteside had seventeen points on eighteen field goal attempts.
Anthony wasn’t with Portland and George was out for the Clippers. The Clippers should have an easier time with Portland’s perimeter threats but a big game from Whiteside for the Blazers could be the difference.

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction: Los Angeles makes it a win.
I’ve got the Clippers and I’ve got them covering medium to medium-large number. Anthony won’t make Portland a better team against the Clippers and George’s addition from the last time these two teams played, gives LA the ability to dictate some matchups.
