Portland have been poor globally this season, playing poor defense and not winning enough match and peoples were expecting more from them after a great season last year. However, since the return of Al Farouq Aminu, they are defending much better and that was their weakness. These last couples of games, their best player Damian Lillard (averaging 27pts a game) was missing from injury but tonight he's expected to be back so that's great news. While he was out, the team stayed really competitive winning 2 in 5. They lost in a good game against Warriors yesterday and Toronto by only 4 last week so they've been performing well and with the return of their star Damian Lillard they should get even better if they can keep defending that well.
CJ McCollum is the second offensive option and he was the Most Improved Player last year but this year he is still improving and he averages over 30 pts a game in the last 5 during Lillard's absence. This is really impressive.
LA Lakers after a good start, they are now losing a lot. 3 wins in 16 matches and 1 win in 10 away matches and 6 of their 9 losses were by 9 pts or more. Their form is not good at all and at home they are still a dangerous team but away from home their not good at all. I expect a +10 win for Portland there but the -6.5 at 1.83 is nice odds. Good luck :
