Pick: Los Angeles Clippers @ Portland Trailblazers – 8/8/2020

The surging Blazers face one of the top teams in the West, but they have been toppling giants since arriving at the bubble. Damian Lillard is coming off a 45-point performance over the Nuggets and the rest of the team has followed suit in playing efficiently on both ends of the floor. The Clippers on the other hand have been facing some adversity with several players leaving the bubble for one reason or another. While Lou Williams is again in an active role with the team, Patrick Beverley and Montrezl Harrell will miss Saturday’s game as well as Kawhi Leonard (load management). The Clippers are still capable of winning this game, but given how well these offenses play the best bet on this one is playing the total.
