Washington Wizards at Portland TrailBlazers Prediction
Seven out of the last eight in this series have gone over the number including their match this season where the Trailblazers won in Washington 108-105. That game was the first one missed by star point guard John Wall and I think that impacted the team. Portland shot 51.2 % in that game a number I ddon’t think that they repeat this go around. Washington is coming off of their worst offensive performance of any team this season in the NBA and will certainly improve, but I think that without Wall in the line-up, the team will have to rely on their defensive to lead them to victory and that starts tonight.
