Spurs vs Trail Blazers Final NBA Betting Analysis
San Antonio plays hard. But they don’t have that one superstar player that they did in the past. Both LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan can score. But neither is a superstar player.
That’s not the same for Portland. Damian Lillard is one of the best players in the NBA. Lillard averages 29.7 points and 7.9 assists per game. Although Portland allows over 115 points per game on average, they held Utah to 107 and Houston to 112 during the win streak. The Lakers scored 119 but Portland countered with 127.
Denver embarrassed Portland with a 28 point win in the Blazers last. They should bounce back here. The Trail Blazers cover.
