The Oklahoma City Thunder need to take advantage of games like this if they're going to sneak into the playoffs. The Portland Trail Blazers have been going nowhere fast over the last month or so, they lose ugly most nights, and now there are reports they could shut down Damian Lillard for the remainder of the season. It looks like the Trail Blazers are throwing in the towel on the season. Give me OKC and the chalk.
