Portland Trail Blazers vs Phoenix Suns 2/22/2021 Betting Odds
Portland Trail Blazers Betting
The Portland Trail Blazers was upset by one of the league’s worst teams, the Washington Wizards during their last game, 111-118. Damian Lillard managed to drop 35 points and 12 assists but the results didn’t favor them in the end. Enes Kanter dominated the paint with 19 points and 13 rebounds while Gary Trent Jr. did 16 points along with four three-pointers. Ryan Covington and Derrick Jones Jr. each had 11 points to round up the top scorers. One big factor that the team lost against the Wizards was the lack of contribution from the bench as Carmelo Anthony shot only 20% from the field.

Phoenix Suns Betting
The Phoenix Suns with Chris Paul is just a much different animal as compared to what they had last year. The point guard led the team’s pace and has only lost once in their last nine matches. They are coming in on back-to-back wins and their most recent match was a blowout victory over the young Memphis Grizzlies. The Suns are now the fourth best team in the NBA Western Conference and just above the Portland Trail Blazers. This is going to be a tough challenge for them but the divide between them is quite wide. Paul will have his hands full going up against Damian Lillard.
Players to Watch: D. Booker SG 25 GP 25 GS 34.7 MIN 24.3 PTS 0.2 OR 3.6 DR 3.8 REB 4.3 AST 0.8 STL 0.3 BLK 3.5 TO 3.2 PF 1.2 AST/TO 17.5 PER
