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.

Probable starters:Will the Suns even be able to keep this matchup close without Devin Booker and T.J. Warren ?
How will Ayton respond after saying he pretty much gave up after the first quarter on Tuesday?
There are countless subplots to follow along with in this one, but most of them revolve around the current state of the Suns. This one might get ugly again, too.

Consensus betting prediction from the Covers.com community:
Portland Trail Blazers (56% consensus). The slumping Portland Trail Blazers look to take advantage of struggling Phoenix when they host the Suns on Thursday. Portland has lost three straight games and six of its last seven games as it entertains a Phoenix squad with six straight setbacks and the NBA's worst record... http://bit.ly/2B27bSW

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.
