Portland won its 12th game in a row last night as it dispatched the Pistons 100-87 on its home floor. The Trail Blazers have covered the spread the last nine wins and are now 38-26-5 ATS on the season. The two meetings this season have been split, with each team winning on the road. Los Angeles has lost its last two games, but it was at two difficult road venues at Oklahoma City and Houston. Prior to that the Clippers had won five of six games. Look for LA to get back on the winning track here against the more fatigued Portland.
