Who’s Playing

Portland @ Los Angeles

Current Records: Portland 1-1; Los Angeles 0-2

What to Know

The Portland Trail Blazers haven’t won a matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers since March 12 of 2019, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Monday. They will face off against one another at 10:30 p.m. ET at Staples Center. The neutral point spread forecasts a close one for these two.

You’re bound to get a positive result if you outscore your opponent every quarter, and that’s exactly how it played out for Portland this past Saturday. They made easy work of the Phoenix Suns and carried off a 134-105 win. With Rip City ahead 67-47 at the half, the contest was all but over already. Portland’s shooting guard CJ McCollum was one of the most active players for the squad, shooting 6-for-11 from beyond the arc and finishing with 28 points and three blocks.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 120-114 to the Memphis Grizzlies. Small forward Marcus Morris wasn’t much of a difference maker for the Clippers; Morris played for 29 minutes but put up just nine points.

Portland’s victory lifted them to 1-1 while Los Angeles’ defeat dropped them down to 0-2. We’ll see if the Trail Blazers can repeat their recent success or if Los Angeles bounces back and reverse their fortune.
