The Portland Trail Blazers play in the second game of their five game road trip when they travel to New Orleans to take on the Pelicans.
This is a match up between two teams who are heading in the opposite direction. This is the third meeting of the year between the two teams. Each team won the previous match up on their home court.
Portland Trail Blazers
The Portland Trail Blazers have entered the point in the season where every game is important if they want to capture that eighth playoff spot in the Western conference.
They come into this game in 9th place 1.5 points back of the Nuggets. They have won five of their last six games including their last game over the Suns.
The Trail Blazers seem to be good on the offensive side of the ball, and really bad on the defensive side of the court.
In their last five games they have averaged 120.8 points per game on the offensive side of the ball. On the defensive side of the ball they are giving up 114.
Now they are winning games but giving up that many points is playing with fire. At some point they are going to stop making shots and start getting blown out.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins experiment has been a complete disaster so far. They haven’t been able to co exist on the court and the team seems to do better when one of them is on the bench.
They come into this game 3-6 since trading for Cousins. One of those wins he was suspended for, one wins he was in foul trouble most of the game, and in the last win he was benched for the fourth quarter.
To win this game those two are going to have to learn how to co exist quickly because this will be an up tempo game, and if they get off to a slow that they will be losing again.

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs. New Orleans Pelicans NBA Prediction:
This game is going to come down to if the DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis can co-exist in this game because if they don’t they will lose.
I think that is what will happen.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Portland ATS
I expect Cousins to really struggle again which will cause the Pelicans to struggle scoring points.
