What you need to know about the Trail Blazers
Things couldn’t have gone much worse for the Trail Blazers as they lost 145-117 to the Boston Celtics this past Saturday. Portland was down 103-84 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Portland’s loss came about despite a quality game from point guard Dennis Smith Jr., who had 21 points and six assists.
The Blazers will be without superstar guard Damian Lillard. His counterpart, CJ McCollum, is banged up, but expected to play on Monday night. Should Portland be without both players, they will be in serious trouble against the Clippers. Portland is 9-15 against the spread this season.
What you need to know about the Clippers
Meanwhile, Los Angeles was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 104-99 to the Sacramento Kings. One thing holding Los Angeles back was the mediocre play of point guard Reggie Jackson, who did not have his best game, picking up five fouls and turning the ball over four times en route to an 18-point finish.
The Clippers enter this game in a much better place health-wise than their opponent. Paul George is playing at a high level and will be a matchup nightmare for Portland. The Clippers are 10-14 ATS thus far this season.
