This Saturday night NBA matchup will see the Portland Trail Blazers take on the San Antonio Spurs.
Both teams come into this game with a losing record and will need to get back into the win column.
Portland Trail Blazers
The Trail Blazers are coming into this game having lost two games in a row and six of their last seven. Their only win recently came against the Hawks in an overtime game.
Portland has been scoring a ton of points this year, which is good, but that mainly has to do with their horrible defense.
Breaking down the offense further, we see that they are scoring 112.2 points per game. This is 12th in the NBA, which is not too surprising given that no one wants to play defense.
Portland also is struggling to shoot the ball, averaging 44.1% from the field. This number may not seem that bad, but it ranks 23rd in the league. The Trail Blazers also shoot just 35.8% from the three-point line, which is 13th in the league.
Their offense is led by no other than Damien Lillard. He is scoring 30.5 points per game. He also leads the team with 6.9 assists per game and 1.2 steals per game. Hassan Whiteside has also been a huge contributor, averaging 14.8 points per game and 12.2 rebounds per game.
Now as for their defense, Portland is not stopping anybody. They are allowing 113.9 points per game, 22nd in the league. Teams shoot 43.9% against them from the field, and 34.2% from the three-point line.
The Trail Blazers are also allowing 48.7 rebounds per game, which ranks 27th in the league. Winning the battle on the boards is the key to this game because Portland needs to limit second chance points with their bad defense.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs are also struggling this year, coming in on a three-game losing streak. They most recently lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves 129-114.
Offense has also not been a problem for the Spurs as they are averaging 112.4 points per game. This ranks 11th in the NBA. They are shooting a very good 46.2% from the field, which ranks 8th in the league. Their three-point shooting comes in at 34%, so just slightly below average at 17th.
DeMar DeRozan leads this team with an average of 20.1 points per game. The best part about San Antonio however, is they have guys all over the court that can score. There are seven guys oon the roster that are scoring an average of 10 points or more, so it feels like on any night someone different could break out.
It is important that San Antonio scores so many points because their defense is terrible. They are allowing 114.3 points per game. They are allowing opponents to shoot 47.5% from the field. Opponents also shoot 36% from the three-point line.

4* Free NBA Betting Pick: OVER 227
Both teams have proved that they can score at will and play no defense. I will take the over in this game as I believe we will see more of the same.
One final note is the Spurs will be playing the second night of a back to back, but I still like them to score plenty to push this total over.
