The Clippers are currently on a 9-1 Over run, mainly due to an atrocious defense that has allowed 140 and 142 points in the last two games. The Blazers are capable of taking advantage of this, so go Over again.
The Portland Trail Blazers have a potent offense, as was evident the last game, a thorough 108-98 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.
They racked up 44 points in the paint and accumulated 22 second-chance points. The Blazers used hot shooting to build a 97-61 lead. Fueled by a small lineup, the Blazers made seven of their first 10 field goals in the fourth quarter, as Rudy Fernandez was swishing jumpers and Brandon Roy was doing a little bit of everything.
Now they face a Los Angeles Clippers team that plays no defense, giving up 140 and 142 points the last two games. In fact, the disinterested Clippers are on a 9-1 run over the total. Look for plenty of points in the Rose Garden.
Play the Clippers/Blazers over the total.
Free Pick: Clippers, Blazers Over 204 (-110)
