Clippers were rather good in the game against. They showed the best percent of shots’ realization but made them much less, than the rivals.
“Lou” Williams won’t be playing in this match. He is injured.

Three days ago Portland has ruined Toronto (128-122) and took the sixth line of the Western Conference. However, in this game Trail Blazers can play without Damian Lillard. He didn’t take part in the last training but doctors say that he will be able to play in the match against Clippers.
Besides Lillard, Anfernee Simons won’t play. His participation is still under a question.

Bookmaker coefficients on the match Los Angeles Clippers vs Portland Trail Blazers
Los Angeles Clippers to win – odds 1.88;
Portland Trail Blazers to win – odds 2.23.
Lately Clippers demonstrate rather weak game and can’t even sometimes score 100 points for one match. Portland is good in driving toward the basket and can stop the attack of Clippers.
Besides, Lillard’s participation is under a question therefore Trail Blazers won’t play on the maximum of their opportunities. So, we consider that this meeting won’t be very productive.
Our tip: total under 220.5 – odds 1.75 Bwin
