Portland Trail Blazers vs LA Lakers Preview

Mon, Jan 23rd. 02:00 (UK time)

We are halfway through the NBA regular season, and things are not looking great for the Lakers and the Blazers. Both teams are below .500, in 12th and 13th place, so they are not even in the play-in spots as things currently stand. The only worse teams in the Western Conference are “tanking” teams, Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs. The Lakers have played without Anthony Davis for over a month, so the struggles are expected.

However, Blazers lost 11 out of the last 15 games while being healthy and having Lillard performing at the MVP level (32.4 ppg with 7.5 assists on average over the last 10 games). It would make sense if they had a difficult schedule, but they lost to Orlando Magic, Indiana Pacers, Wolves without Towns, and twice to the Thunders.

This is a perfect spot for the Blazers to bounce back after two losses, and the most important thing is that we get the aggressive Lillard, as he shot 20+ FGA in 7 out of the last 8 games and also had 10+ Free Throws in 5 straight games. He was usually starting the games slow, trying to get everyone involved and then taking over the scoring games in the second half, known as the “Dame time”. But with all these losses lately, we get the “Dame Time” from the beginning.

These two teams already played this season, and Lillard scored 41 points. Lebron James is in a similar spot because, without Anthony Davis, he needs to be way more aggressive and score a ton of points by himself, which he did. He has a 25.9 points average playing with Davis, and a 33.6 points average in games without Davis. He played against Portland twice this season, with Davis, and scored 31 points in both games. 

The last part of this bet is Jusuf Nurkic overs on rebounds and points, and the main reason for this bet is that, since Davis injury, the Lakers have been struggling vs. Centers, allowing 5th most points and 8th most rebounds. So over the last 5 games, we had players like Adams get 16 points and 17 rebounds, Holmes 16 points and 11 rebounds, Sengun 33 points and 15 rebounds, Embiid 35 points and 11 rebounds, and finally, Wood 24 points and 15 rebounds. Huge numbers, and everyone way above their season average. 

  • Damian Lillard Over 28.5 Points
  • Lebron James Over 29.5 Points
  • Jusuf Nurkic Over 11.5 Points and Over 8.5 Rebounds
