Thunder and Blazers are Banged Up

The Portland Trail Blazers and the Oklahoma City Thunder will meet at Chesapeake Energy Arena on Tuesday. The Northwest division rivals will tip-off a few minutes after 8 pm EST. The game will be telecast live on NBA TV.

Oddsmakers opened the Thunder as -8.5-point favorites versus the Trail Blazers, while the game’s total opened at 204.5.

The Thunder return home in the middle of a stretch of five road games in six. The Blazers kick off a four game road trip. The Thunder and Trail Blazers are part of a close-knit bunch at the bottom of the Western Conference playoff race.

Oklahoma City is a half-game ahead of Portland and Denver. New Orleans 1-1/2  games back.

Both Teams will be without key players tonight.

Blazers’ point guard Damian Lillard has missed six of the last eight games. He is listed as out for the game with a right calf strain. Lillard first was out with a strained right hamstring. He returned for a loss at Cleveland on Jan. 2 and suffered the calf injury. Lillard is averaging 24.9 points, 6.3 assists and 4.8 rebounds.

The Thunder are expected to be without defensive stalwart Andre Roberson. This is the fourth consecutive game he will miss with left patellar tendinitis. He figures to miss at least two more games before his return.

Thunder Defense May Suffer

Oklahoma City was a 114-100 loser in its last match on the road against the Phoenix Suns. They failed to cover the -8-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 214 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

The Thunder defense has been among the league’s best this season. Mainly because of Roberson’s work on the perimeter and against pick-and-rolls. With Roberson on the floor, the Thunder have averaged 12 fewer points per 100 possessions than when he’s not.

Oklahoma City has handled the loss well.  they have gone 2-1 on the recent road trip without Roberson.

Blazers Look to Overcome without Lillard Against Thunder

Portland was a 111-110 winner in its last match at home against the San Antonio Spurs. They earned a push of the -1-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 221 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

Portland has been able to play well with their star our.  They are 4-2 without Lillard during this recent stretch.

Shabazz Napier will start in Lillard’s place. During his recent five starts, Lillard is averaging 18.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists.
