Take the over in this game. The Portland offense has been clicking in the bubble. Lillard, McCollum, and Trent Jr. have been on fire from deep. Nurcic healthy has been a huge boost to this lineup, especially offensively. As good as Portland is offensively though they have trouble on the defensive end, especially inside. Look for Anthony Davis to put up monster numbers in this series as Portland will really have no answers. I can see LeBron and Davis running a ton of pick and roll in this series. I think Portland will look to outscore LA and the Lakers will be more than happy to run with them, at least in the beginning of this series. This will sail over the posted total.
