The Trail Blazers enter this contest with two losses on the season. Portland is bound to have some adjustments early with new head coach Chauncey Billups, but this team needs to be better on the defensive end. Damian Lillard is averaging 19.5 points and 9.5 assists per game through two contests. He’ll need more help from his supporting cast in this game.
The Clippers are also 0-2 on the year. They’ve been more competitive than the Trail Blazers so far even with Kawhi Leonard sidelined. Paul George is putting in complete performances so far, averaging 35.0 points, 10.5 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game. It’ll be an interesting duel between him and Lillard in this contest.
