Tuesday’s matchup between the Portland Trail Blazers and the Washington Wizards will be the second night of a back-to-back for both of them. Washington lost to the Golden State Warriors in a high-scoring contest Wednesday night despite being without forward Kyle Kuzma. Meanwhile, Damian Lillard scored 40 points to lead Portland to a double-digit victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.
Despite the Blazers’ superior record thus far this season, the Wizards and Blazers are both contenders for their respective conferences’ play-in tournaments. The Blazers’ rotation is narrower than you might anticipate after selling away Josh Hart at the deadline, especially if Jerami Grant is out for this game, and Kuzma is once more classified as questionable for Washington.
The result of this game will be significantly influenced by Kuzma’s current situation. Lillard has carried Portland throughout the season, and he is currently hot, scoring 36.9 points per game over his previous 19 games. After winning on Monday, the Blazers have been a strong club at home, going 12-9 against the spread as a home favorite.
The Wizards have been a streaky club this season, which has caused them to bounce around the play-in picture all season. They are 11-11-2 against the spread as away underdogs. Washington’s net rating for the season is 23rd in the league after losing four of its last six games. The Blazers may be able to dominate this battle as long as Dame is on a roll.
The Wizards lost to the Trail Blazers at home by eight points 10 days ago after blowing a 20-point lead, which was quite devastating for their fans. Even if Kyle Kuzma stays sidelined this time, Washington will keep it tight. Watch out for Bradley Beal and Kristaps Porzingis, who scored 66 points combined in Washington’s previous matchup with Portland.
