Portland Posting Ugly Numbers vs Clippers

Damian Lillard Chris Paul

The Los Angeles Clippers cruised to a 20-point blowout win in Game 1 of their Western Conference first-round series with the Portland Trail Blazers, but the Blazers will be seeking a better performance tonight in Game 2. Portland is 0-4 SU and 1-3 ATS in its previous four meetings with Lob City.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 1-4 SU in its last five games in this matchup.
  • The Trail Blazers are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games after a loss.
  • The Clippers are 1-8 ATS in their last nine games with two days off between games.

A rejuvenated Blake Griffin made all the difference for the Clips. Griffin, playing in his sixth game after missing more than three months with a pair of injuries, had his best stat line since returning, finishing with 19 points, 11 assists and six rebounds. L.A. shot 53.8 percent from the field and committed only 10 turnovers in the victory.

The Blazers opened as 8.5-point underdogs, which won’t inspire much confidence in their backers. Portland is a measly 0-5 SU in its last five when tabbed as an underdog of 8.5 points or less.
