Portland vs Phoenix Stats
Portland Trail Blazers
The Portland Trail Blazers are having a season to forget, as they have lost their seventh consecutive game on Sunday. The Thunder led in field goal percentage, three-point percentage, rebounds, and points in the paint, leading the Blazers to score just 40% from the field, and 32.6% from the three. The Trail Blazers are ranked 30th in schedule-adjusted offensive rating, 23rd in adjusted defensive rating, and 24th in pace. Offensively, they have a field goal percentage of 42.77% and are ranked 30th, as well as converting 78.31% of their free throws (ranked #12). Defensively, they are ranked 24th in field goal percentage (allowing an average of 48.89%), and 12th in three-point percentage (allowing an average of 35.37%). This season, they have a record of 3-10 (5-8 ATS).
Phoenix Suns Analysis
The Phoenix Suns have earned high expectations this season with their 'Big Three' composed of SG Bradley Beal, F Kevin Durant, and SG Devin Booker. They display impressive offensive performance with 8th place rank for points per game and 14th rank for field goal percentage. Phoenix is also 5th for free throws percentage and 2nd for three-pointers percentage. The defense for Phoenix lies in the top 10 of the league, ranking 20th for points per game and 9th for field goal percentage. Their game against Utah resulted in a win, but at a cost of being outrebounded and outscored in the paint.
Possibility of Portland Blazers Covering 13-Point Spread Against Phoenix Suns High
Considering the Phoenix Suns (5-7-1 ATS) have a 13-point spread against the Portland Blazers (5-8 ATS) who currently have several players out, the spread maybe a bit too large. Phoenix is relying on Grayson Allen and Eric Gordon to carry the team in the absence of Bradley Beal and Damion Lee, while Portland big man Jusuf Nurkic has been shooting at 42.9%. With Portland aiming to not let consecutive opponents shoot 60%, the chances of them covering the spread is high. Therefore, it would not be surprising to see the Blazers come out on top.
