Blazers impress at Pacers

Portland won its second game in three tries during the current road trip last night with a 103-93 victory at Indiana. Zach Collins helped lead the way with 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting plus three rebounds and three assists off the bench. C.J. McCollum also scored 17 to go with six rebounds. Damian Lillard had 16 points and two boards. Evan Turner had 13 points, eight boards and three assists. Al-Farouq Aminu and Caleb Swanigan both contributed 11 points and 10 rebounds. Nik Stauskas added 10 points, five assists and three rebounds off the bench. The Trail Blazers outscored the hosts 58-44 in the second half.

Rockets drop third straight

Houston lost decisively by a count of 133-113 at home Friday night versus the Clippers. The Rockets trailed 70-61 at halftime and were outscored in every quarter of the defeat. Carmelo Anthony helped lead the way with 24 points plus two rebounds and two blocked shots. Gerald Green had 19 points and five boards off the bench. Clint Capela tallied 14 points, 15 caroms and two steals. Chris Paul had 12 points, eight assists, six rebounds and two steals. P.J.

NBA Betting Trends


The Trail Blazers are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings. The over is 14-4 in the last 18 meetings in Houston.


The Rockets are 0-5 ATS in their last five games versus a team with a winning straight up record. The over is 21-6 in the last 27 meetings.


Houston has had plenty of rest and time to sort things out after its 20-point loss to the Clippers last week, while Portland has a quick turnaround after playing at Indiana last night. Houston isn't much different than the team that went to the Western Conference Finals last season and I'd imagine it gets rolling soon. Look for the Rockets to cover what isn't a very daunting spread tonight.
