Who’s Playing

Los Angeles @ Portland

Current Records: Los Angeles 1-3; Portland 2-2

What to Know

The Portland Trail Blazers have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with the Los Angeles Clippers and are hoping to record their first win since March 12 of 2019. The Trail Blazers’ homestand continues as they prepare to take on Los Angeles at 10 p.m. ET Oct. 29 at Moda Center at the Rose Quarter. Rip City should still be riding high after a big victory, while the Clippers will be looking to get back in the win column.

Rip City took their matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday by a conclusive 116-96 score. The oddsmakers were on Rip City’s side, but they didn’t give the team enough credit as the margin was unexpectedly wide. Their success was spearheaded by the efforts of center Jusuf Nurkic, who had 17 points in addition to eight rebounds, and shooting guard CJ McCollum, who had 25 points along with six boards.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers at home by a decisive 92-79 margin. One thing holding Los Angeles back was the mediocre play of small forward Paul George, who did not have his best game: he picked up four fouls and turned the ball over four times en route to a 6-for-20, 12-point finish.

Portland is now 2-2 while Los Angeles sits at 1-3. A pair of numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Rip City has allowed their opponents an average of 10.5 steals per game, the second most in the league. To make matters even worse for Rip City, the Clippers come into the contest boasting the most steals per game in the league at 12.5. In other words, the Trail Blazers will need to work extra hard to take care of the ball.
