Holy moly. The Portland Trail Blazers might just look like the best team in the league right now, and the big story has to be whether Damian Lillard can keep up his hot play. The streak of buzzer beaters ended in the last game, but the young point guard has helped the Blazers look truly impressive in the early season.
In any case look for the Blazers to win this one at home tonight against the New Orleans Pelicans. The Blazers are favored (-9) obviously, and even though think they will win it might be tough for them to cover the spread. This one tips off at 10 PM EST so the old folks probably won’t be up for it, but just in case here is the TV info if you are feeling adventurous tonight.
TV: FS-New Orleans, KGW, DTV: 678, 765
The Blazers should come out hungry in this one as well after their latest double digit loss left them in the dumps a bit.
“By the time we actually started getting it done on the offensive end and make some shots,” Lillard said after the latest humbling loss. “We were digging ourselves out of a hole. That made it much tougher.”
Now going to go watch all the games this week that DVRed, but just have not had a chance to check out yet. Thanks so much for reading.
