Blazers at home are a really good team and it doesn't help the Suns that Devin Booker is out once again. I won't be surprised if Blazers win by 17-20 points. But I'm going to bet on Blazers winning by 3 or more points in 1st Quarter.

Portland Trail Blazers (56% consensus). The slumping Portland Trail Blazers look to take advantage of struggling Phoenix when they host the Suns on Thursday.

Buckle up. We haven't seen a contest as ugly as Tuesday's against the Kings since at least last year's Spurs fiasco, if not further back, the first three games of the 2017 season that ultimately cost Earl Watson his job. It likely will not be much prettier this evening in Portland, as the backcourt star power of the Trail Blazers is one of the worst matchups imaginable for the Suns without Devin Booker.
