What you need to know about the Trail Blazers
The Trail Blazers fought the good fight in their overtime game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 134-131. The defeat was just more heartbreak for Portland, who fell 96-93 when the teams previously met last month. The losing side was boosted by center Drew Eubanks, who dropped a double-double on 27 points and 14 boards.
Portland is coming off an overtime game on Monday night, where only eight players saw the court due to a slew of injuries. Needless to say, fatigue could play a factor in this matchup. The Trail Blazers are 29-45-1 against the spread in 2021-22.
What you need to know about the Pelicans
Meanwhile, New Orleans was able to grind out a solid victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday, winning 116-108. New Orleans was down 69-49 at the end of the half, but the squad rallied to mount a spectacular comeback. Their small forward Brandon Ingram did his thing and had 26 points and five assists along with seven rebounds.
New Orleans is in the thick of the race to secure on of the spots in the Western Conference play-in games. CJ McCollum has been outstanding since coming over from Portland in a mid-season trade, and could be looking for revenge against his former team. The Pelicans are 38-36-1 against the spread in 2021-22.
