Blazers Attempt To Fix Road Woes Vs LAC

If the Portland Trail Blazers want to keep themselves in the playoff picture, they will need to start picking up their game on the road. The Blazers are 1-7 SU and 3-5 ATS in their past eight road games with the only SU victory coming against the lowly New Orleans Pelicans. Damian Lillard and company may not find a better spot to try to fix their road woes than they'll have when they face a struggling Los Angeles Clippers squad on Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 14-7 in the Clippers' past 21 games.
  • The Clippers are 1-3-1 ATS in their past five games hosting the Blazers.
  • The OVER is 7-0 in the Blazers' past seven games on the road.

The Blazers defense has been downright terrible recently as the team has given up 116.7 point per game through their past 10 outings. Defense has been the issue for Portland all season as their sixth-ranked offense has been weighed down by their 20th ranked defense.

The Clippers have been struggling mightily recently with the team picking up just two wins in their past eight games while going 1-7 ATS. LA has allowed all but one of their past eight opponents to score at least 108 points, with the lone exception being the punchless New York Knicks. Chris Paul had an amazing outing the first time these teams met this season, with the point guard notching 21 points and 19 assists, but was held to a combined 21 points and 14 assists in the last two against the Blazers.
