Portland Trail Blazers
The main player of the team will not play in Portland, Lillard – without him the offense does not look as effective and spectacular. Of course, there are such basketball players as McCallum and Carmelo, but we must admit that these players are rather a very good addition to the star. Otherwise, we can only highlight Whiteside – there are no more outstanding performers in the guest team. It is because of the impossibility of quality team play should be considered Blazers less preferable option.
In this situation, it is difficult to count on a positive result, so there is only one way out – to wait for the return of key players, though I would not like to lose a chance to get to the playoffs.
There are no four players in the guest team during almost the whole season, all because of injuries. But despite the fact that Portland is not in the playoff zone of the Western Conference, but is on the ninth line, thanks to several victories it can be there. Apparently, Terry Stotts’s players also understand this very well, and in recent games, as we see their results are much higher than what they showed at the beginning of the season.
Indiana knows how to play with weak opponents – Portland has a lot of problems of different nature, so it is very possible to succeed in all gaming aspects. In such a situation, from a very well-coordinated team like Pacers we can be expected an extremely high performance, which will be combined with an effective game on their half of the floor – it is worth considering Indiana a clear favorite in this pair. Portland is weaker.
The Pacers stopped one step away from the top five of the Eastern Conference, so they set a goal to beat the 5th team in the near future. In general, the team looks good, but the key games lack a leader Victor Oladipo.
Nate McMillan’s players most likely know about the opponent’s problems and it would be extremely illogical not to take such a chance. Indiana in their native walls is quite good, according to bookmakers see the favorite in this team.
