I think the mere fact that the Blazers are coming off a back to back and traveling (sure dallas to OKC isn't much but it's still an inconvenience) gives a huge edge to OKC. OKC is great at defending guards and are a very physical team that should give CJ and Damian trouble. PG has been playing out of his mind this year and I expect him to feast on this blazers team and I love Adams to shut down Nurkic. OKC -6.5
My Pick: Oklahoma City +-6.5

Blazer's Edge: Recap: Thunder Dismiss Blazers, 120-111
The Portland Trail Blazers didn't roll over and die, but didn't show much fight either, getting run over by the Oklahoma City Thunder on the road 120-111. It was not as close as the score suggests.
Portland looked hapless through about the first 32 minutes before ripping off an almost hope inspiring 10-0 run to close within five at 87-82 heading into the fourth quarter. The rally ended there, however, as Oklahoma City led by Paul George asserted full control in the final frame and easily sent the Blazers packing with a third straight loss.
Welcome to Loud City: Thunder vs Trail Blazers, final score: Paul George powers OKC to home win, 120-111
The Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Portland Trail Blazers at home, 120-111, for OKC's 4th win in a row. Powered behind another dominant performance by Paul George, OKC led nearly throughout behind timely shooting and a stout defense over a tired Blazers team playing on the 2nd night of a back-to-back.
George continued his assault on the league by recording his own triple-double, scoring 47 points on 15-26 shooting, including 8-13 from three, 12 rebounds and 10 assists to go with 2 steals. His counterpart Russell Westbrook, again struggling from the floor, still grabbed his 10th straight triple-double (23rd on the season) with 21 points (10-13 from the FT line), 14 rebounds, and 11 assists.
Fansided: Injury Update: OKC Thunder Dennis Schroder, Jerami Grant both out versus Blazers
Late Monday afternoon, OKC Thunder head coach Billy Donovan revealed Oklahoma City would battle the Portland Trailblazers sans Jerami Grant and Dennis Schroder. The news regarding Grant did not come as a shock due to the fact he had been listed as out, since Sunday afternoon.
Grant suffered a right ankle sprain in the fourth quarter of the Thunder's 26-point comeback victory against the Houston Rockets on Saturday. When the injury occurred Grant grimaced but ultimately stayed in the game, his seven fourth-quarter points helped the Thunder secure a 117-112 road win.

Schroder, Donovan said, was ruled out due to a personal matter. Donovan did not provide any insight as to how long Schroder would be out of it his absence was a one-game scenario. "I don't want to comment any further past right now," Donovan said.
