NBA -- Portland Trail Blazers vs Denver Nuggets G3 Pick and Prediction

 

 

Portland Trail Blazers:

 

In the first two away games in this series, Portland got 1 win and 1 loss and now they will be retuning home, where their records were 20-16 during the regular season. In G2, Lillard had 32 points in the first half of Game 2, but coach Michael Malone used 6-foot-10 Aaron Gordon on him in the second half, which helped hold Lillard to 10 points, how will Lillard solve that problem?

 

 Denver Nuggets:

 

Denver outscored Portland in each quarter of G2 and shot 54 percent overall. All-Star Nikola Jokic led six Denver players in double figures with 38 points on a 15-for-20 shooting performance. Paul Millsap contributed 15 points and seven rebounds in just 15 minutes off the bench. And another good news is that Will Barton could return from a right hamstring strain and playing in G3.

 

 

Prediction:

 

Portland have to rely on their 3 pointers to win games, and they rank second worst in defensive efficiency. Expect a high scoring game.

 

NBA Pick: over 227.5
