Key Points to Consider
Outlook: Portland is a half-game ahead of Memphis (and others) for the No. 8 spot. There will be a play-in tournament between the No. 8 and No. 9 seed to see who matches up with the No. 1 seed Lakers in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. Phoenix and San Antonio are the other 2 teams a half-game behind Portland. Phoenix matches up with Dallas Thursday night; Memphis plays the Bucks, and San Antonio plays the Utah Jazz.
Where Brooklyn At: Brooklyn is locked in to the No. 7 spot in the Eastern Conference. There’s really not much for them to play for here, meaning we’ll see most of their starters out. Four of their five starters sat out Tuesday’s win. They are 5-2 in the bubble games so far.
ATS: The Blazers are 6-1-1 against the spread (ATS) in the bubble games so far.
Damian Lillard is projected to finish with 30 points on 49% shooting, along with 8 assists, 5 rebounds and 1 steal.
Caris LeVert, if he does suit up, is projected to finish with 17-to-18 points on 46% shooting, along with 4 assists and 4 rebounds.
