Hot Trends

  • The Under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
  • Portland has won six of the last ten games in this series.  Two of the four losses were by four or fewer points.
  • Under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
  • Trail Blazers are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.

Preview

Both clubs recorded wins Thursday. But as far as individual performances, Damian Lillard delivered in impressive fashion, scoring 45 points, recording 12 assists and leading the Trail Blazers past the Denver Nuggets 125-115. Lillard connected on 13 of 21 shots, including 11 of 18 3-pointers. The 3-pointers made equaled Lillard's club record. 

Lillard struggled offensively in Portland's previous three contests but not this time. 

"In the first three games, the ball I thought was coming off my hands really well. I just wasn't making (shots)," Lillard told reporters after the game. "I think it was timing and the fact we haven't been playing in games, (without) a lot of live action it just takes time. But it felt good. I knew eventually it would click and the ball just would go in and it would feel great." 

Portland made 23 of 39 shots from behind the arc, setting a franchise record.
