Lou Williams contributed 15 points, six assists and two boards. Avery Bradley had 13 points, three assists and two rebounds. Tobias Harris added 12 points, seven caroms and four dimes.

NBA Betting Trends
The over is 4-0 in the last four Clippers games following an ATS win. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings.
The over is 4-0 in the last four Trail Blazers games overall. The under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings in Portland.
Portland hasn't been able to slow down anyone lately and now faces a Clippers offense that is one of the best in the NBA. Portland usually has no issues with scoring and will want to bounce back after a couple poor efforts. I see these two squads racing past the total tonight.
