Portland vs Player Special by QuidProQuo
C.J.McCollum has been suspended one game after leaving the bench area during the fourth quarter of Wednesday's preseason win. He will serve his suspension today and that is the biggest news around this game.
That means Lillard will have to play more minutes than it was planned, since McCollum played as point-guard while Lillard was resting. His usage is elite and with more minutes we clearly expect pretty big game from him. When you take into account the reports he lost some weight and is even faster, plus the fact they face the Suns in what should be fastest game of the day (projected on around 103 possessions), there's no doubt Lillard will have big game.
But, this point line of 33.5 is just crazy. On most other books it's around 28-29 and just have to take the under and squeeze those few points of value. Also, Nurkic should have good game and is in a good spot, so it might eat some of the Lillard's usage. Good luck!
