Bad beat with the Celtics going to OT still not a bad night. TNT Thursday sure gives you the weirdest line. I only got one for Thursday.
Portland Trailblazers +1.5
Blazers have this Rose Garden magic that either makes them really good or make their opponents look bad. Clippers' schedule should get to the playing the 5th game in 7 nights. It's the beginning of the season but if effects of a 3g/4n can be seen in other teams, why can't a 5/7? I see a rested Portland getting the W here through dominating the glass and keeping their TOs low. They've been really good and not turning the ball over in their first few games and should be more effecient playing comfortably at home. It is also good catching the Blazers with a 2 days off because they'd need a lot from their starters. Clippers have a very good bench and could give the Blazers a lot of problem but hopefully we could see fatigue come the later parts of the game.
Oklahoma City -1.5 - Pretty weird line but what the heck.
OKC/CHI UNDER 201.5 - If you can get 201 that is. I'm seeing 191 in every other books. Both teams score 90 easy in their games while allowing almost the same amount. I see either a 93-90 or a 98-92 type of final score here.
