Portland Trail Blazers Betting

The Blazers are in trouble, I mean in really big trouble. With Damian Lillard, Zach Collins and Jusuf Nurkic all nursing injuries, Portland just couldn’t hang up with the best of the NBA. In Tuesday’s 115-104 defeat at the hands of the New Orleans Pelicans, CJ McCollum paced the Blazers with 22 points on 9-for-22 shooting, while Hassan Whiteside added 14 points and 14 boards in their 10th loss this season. Carmelo Anthony, who signed a non-guaranteed contract, debuted with 10 points on ugly 4-for-14 shooting in 24 minutes of play.

Players to Watch: Damian Lillard (28.6 PPG, 4.9 RPG, 7.1 APG), C.J. McCollum (21.3 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 3.5 APG), Hassan Whiteside (14.9 PPG, 12.0 RPG, 0.9 APG)
