Point Spread Pick:

Portland was a non-impressive 2-2 on their mini eastern road trip, but the losses were to a very hot Washington and to Indiana holder of the best home record in the NBA. They’re now back home where they 19-5 straight up on the year including 10-3 versus their West conference foes. The Thunder are only 9-7 as a visitor in conference games and did lose in Portland earlier this season. The betting line doesn’t really come into play here so we’ll go with the probabilities here and back the Trail Blazers. Take the Portland Trail Blazers -1.
