*3 Star NBA ATS Play of the Day* The Portland Blazers need to win this game, but too high of a point spread has been placed on them because of that. The public is betting on Portland in large numbers. Portland will probably win the game, but I'll take the points here with the underdog.
Portland plays after the two teams they are battling for a playoff spot against. If they are already locked into their spot, they would likely be far less likely to play their starters for a bunch of minutes. C.J. McCollum is hurting a lot, and their starters have played a lot of minutes lately.
The Nets come into this game in good form. They have won five of their last six games. The Blazers haven't won a single game in the bubble by more than 10 points.
Too many points here.
