In a game from NBA, we will see Portland Trail Blazers at Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Portland Trail Blazers faced one of the top sides in basketball at the moment- the Utah Jazz, on the road in one of the late games on Monday. The team is 4-3 in the second game of back-to-back situations. In those games, the Trail Blazers are averaging 106.3 points per game while allowing 101.7. It is visible that the team relies more on defense in such cases and I expect them to do just the same in this one.
Oklahoma City lost three consecutive games 5 of the last 6 before beating the 76ers and the Knicks on the road. They will now be back at home where they will want to make up for the loss against the Lakers. Oklahoma is great offensively this year, averaging 113.5 points per game while allowing 109 points per game.
Oklahoma will be also playing a back-to-back game. The only difference is that they will be playing at home. The Trail Blazers on the other side are a team that gets victories at home and that performs worse on the road. Anything but a win for Oklahoma will surprise me.
