What you need to know about the Blazers

The Trail Blazers ended up a good deal behind the Brooklyn Nets when they played on Sunday, losing 111-97. The losing side was boosted by power forward Jerami Grant, who shot 5-for-10 from beyond the arc and finished with 29 points and five assists.

The Blazers will be without star point guard Damian Lillard, who will be out for at least a week with a calf strain. Portland will lean on Grant, Anfernee Simons, and Jusuf Nurkic to replace Lillard’s offensive production. Simons has emerged as a budding star for Portland, averaging 23.2 points, 4.3 assists, and 3.1 rebounds per game this season.

What you need to know about the Clippers

Meanwhile, Los Angeles didn’t have too much trouble with the Indiana Pacers at home on Sunday as they won 114-100. Los Angeles’ center Ivica Zubac was on fire, dropping a double-double on 31 points and 29 rebounds in addition to three blocks.

Like the Blazers, the Clippers will be short-handed for this matchup. All-Star guard Kawhi Leonard remains out, and he will be joined by fellow All-Star Paul George, who is nursing a hamstring injury. The Clippers will need a big game out of the likes of Zubac, Reggie Jackson, Norman Powell, and Marcus Morris Sr. to keep this matchup close.
