Portland Trail Blazers
Portland to this match with 3 wins in a row. And beat the defending champion Golden state 123:117, Utah with a double-digit score 100:81, Phoenix 106:104. That is steadily the attack showed a three-digit result. Well, the victory over the Golden state is expensive.
In brilliant form is Lillard, who in February, gaining an average of 32 points per game, 6 assists and 4 rebounds.
Also a good McCollum, gaining an average of 21 points. And of course it should be noted the Central striker of Bosnian Norceca.
Portland is in fifth place in the Western conference, and naturally expects to continue the season in the playoffs, having for this purpose all opportunities. Especially considering what is happening now Damian Lillard. But Portland is important not just to be in the top 8 of the West, and it would be good to be in the top 4 to have home field advantage in the playoffs. In the context of solving this task, we need to San Antonio to get and give to yourself around new Orleans and Oklahoma, which are Radom are also thinking about top 4. In General, relaxing trail Blazers had absolutely no time and need to take your glasses.
Kings is the penultimate 14th place in the Western conference and has little chance to continue the season after the end of the regular season. Yes, the season for Sacramento has been unsuccessful and has not yet seen that this trend will change. Sacramento has lost 4 games in a row, in last round lost to Minnesota with a double-digit difference of 100:118.
Not clear and management decisions kings. 8 Feb signed Joe Johnson, and a few days later expelled him from the team. Now a renowned veteran of the NBA played in Houston. And Sacramento was signed by Fox and Bogdanovich, taking a course in rejuvenation.
Apparently something to show this season the Kings are not meant, and trying to look to the future. Well, it looks like Sacramento is counting on an earlier selection in the draft 2018.
Is in the part of the Kings Randolph, well-known in the League. Well, so Kings have a fairly young team, which clearly lacks experience.
In this season the teams between them have played 4 matches:
Sacramento — Portland — 83:97
Sacramento — Portland — 86:82
Portland — Sacramento — 102:90
Sacramento — Portland — 100:118
As you can see, in 3 of the 4 matches Portland won these victories was more than convincing. The last match between these rivals took place on 10 February in the match Lillard literally ripped the opponent, gaining 50 points. So in this match Lillard seems a big problem for Sacramento. How they will cope with the mystery.
The coefficients and forecast
Judging by the odds the bookies the question of who will win this match, we can say, not worth it. To win Portland’s offer in the area of 1.1. Of course you need to consider the odds. And fora in line at -11.5 in beech. At first glance fora large. But I think Portland will run it without any problems.
We saw this in PM this season. And Sacramento is now more concerned about the earlier room selection in the draft than position in the standings. And the game Kings have a lot of failures and it is unclear how they will cope with Lillard.
But Portland is over motivated to fight for place in playoffs (at least) and possibly the top 4 in the West. There is a serious struggle, in the Western conference in this part of the table is very big density. In General, expect this game full superiority of Lillard on the court and a double-digit victory of his team.
