Thick line, but you can only expect so much from the Portland Trail Blazers with no Lillard, and now Anfernee Simons is questionable with a foot injury. The Trail Blazers will be asking a lot of their role players, and we all know role players aren't at their best on the road. The Phoenix Suns are putting together a nice little stretch, and they're winning by an average of 16.6 points during their 5-game winning streak. A steep line, but it's the Suns or pass for me.
