The Blazers are looking more and more like the team that’s going to contend and likely be favored to get, the 8th seed in the West. Portland’s finally healthy, are looking as cohesive as they’ve been all season and are just running like a well-oiled machine at this point. Denver just took it to the Spurs on Wednesday, but playing a back-to-back with a depleted backcourt against one of the best backcourt tandems in the league in Lillard and McCollum is a tall task. While the Nuggets would like a win for seeding and to potentially catch the Clippers, Portland’s got more at stake here. I’ll side with Portland laying the points as my premium pick for this game.
