(44-28) Portland Trail Blazers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder (44-30)
Portland Trail Blazers
Portland lost its second game in a row after its 12-game winning streak, 105–100 to the Boston Celtics. Boston came into Portland without Jaylen Brown, Kyrie Irving and Marcus Smart to knock off the Blazers.
Portland still has a hold on the #3 seed but the gap narrowed after its loss and Oklahoma City’s win against Miami. The Thunder is down by two losses but have this head-to-head game at home to get a little closer.
Thing is, Portland’s schedule is easier from here and the Blazers are still the favorites to win the division by two games over the Thunder, even with OKC favored in this game.
Damian Lillard will be an All-NBA selection for the third time in his career this season, which has been the finest of his career to date.
He’s also in line to be a father soon. His pregnant girlfriend was due on March 19th and he has a private jet lined up in OKC in case he has to rush before or after the game to be at the hospital for the birth of his first child. Keep an eye on that situation because there is a chance he won’t play this game.
OKC struggled against Miami on Friday night but scored a bunch in the fourth quarter to take the lead and eventually stretch the game out to an eight-point win.
The Thunder has won seven of its last eight games, the only loss coming by a point in Boston when the Celtics got multiple fortunate whistles in the last two minutes, according to the NBA’s report after the game.
Russell Westbrook scored 17 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter in Friday’s win. Steven Adams feasted on a weak Miami interior that was without Hassan Whiteside. He scored 24 with 12 rebounds in the win.
Corey Brewer has played at least 28 minutes in each of the last eight games during this streak. He isn’t a serious offensive threat but he’s knocking down just enough open looks and playing his usual tough defense to really help fill the void after Andre Roberson’s injury.
