The Los Angeles Clippers have been hit or miss lately, and you're never quite sure which team you're going to get. With that said, the Portland Trail Blazers have been free-falling without Lillard in the lineup. In fact, the Trail Blazers are losing their last five games by an average of 15.6 points while shooting 42.8 percent from the field. It's been a struggle for the Trial Blazers. It doesn't help that McCollum is a little banged up with a ribs' injury as well. Give me the Clippers and the small chalk.
