Portland Trail Blazers - 11/7/19 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The Clippers have also played well on the defensive end, but they have struggled when Leonard is not in the lineup. Leonard leads the National Basketball Association in fourth-quarter scoring, now averaging 13.5 points in six final periods, including back-to-back 18 points outbursts.

18 of Leonard's 27 points came in the fourth quarter, after the Clippers had surrendered a 47-40 lead at the half, to fall behind 76-70 after three. The Trail Blazers enter with a record of (3-4).

Clippers: Leonard went over 3,000 rebounds in his career, while Ivica Zubac went over 700 boards.

Prior to the game against Portland, Zubac had started in 32 of his 34 games as a Clipper, averaging 8.9 points and 6.0 rebounds, providing a big body in the paint and a valuable finisher close to the basket. CJ McCollum is averaging 20.7 points and 3.6 assists per game, while Hassan Whiteside is averaging 14.3 points and 12 rebounds per game.

111.7 - That is the offensive qualification of the Clippers (points scored for every 100 possessions), a figure that occupies the fourth best place in the league and is even more impressive when combined with the fact that the Doc Rivers team has played the most hard calendar of any team, so far, by basketballreference.com.

Leonard, who was the NBA Finals MVP last season during the Toronto Raptors' maiden title win, already sat out Los Angeles' loss to the Utah Jazz on October 30 due to a slight knee problem.

Williams' jumper put the Clippers ahead for good and he followed it up with a 3 - one of just four made by the Clippers in the game.

Trail Blazers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. "I didn't do it on goal".

Rivers got doused by Montrezl Harrell in the postgame locker room to celebrate his milestone.

Rivers began his coaching career 21 years ago and credited late Detroit Pistons coach Chuck Daly for vouching for him.

"The NBA has fined the Clippers $50,000 for statements, including by head coach Doc Rivers, that were inconsistent with Leonard's health status".

"It's just the people", he said, citing his assistants over the years in Orlando, Boston and LA.

Leonard and Paul George are the MVP caliber players on this Clippers team, but never, ever, discount the importance of the league's best offensive weapon off the bench. The first 5,000 fans received tube socks. The forward, who signed as a free agent with the Clippers in the offseason, has yet to play both games of a back-to-back this season and last played in a set in April 2017, when he was a member of the San Antonio Spurs. We can tell you it's leaning under, and it also says one side of the spread hits in well over 50 percent of simulations.

A Clippers win may seem on the cards, but Portland are sure to be stiff opposition at the Staples Center and with an average of 114.6 points in their five road trips, we believe a price of 18/25 is great value for over 111.5 team points in the last of our Clippers vs Trail Blazers betting tips.
