Clippers vs Trail Blazers Predictions
November 9, 2021
The Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Clippers have already met twice in 2021-22 and will continue their four-game regular-season series Tuesday, November 9, at Staples Center in LA. Each team has emerged victorious once thus far, so we’re expecting a great battle and a much tighter scoreline than it’s been in their previous two encounters. Back on October 25, LA trounced Portland 116-86 as a 2.5-point home fave. Four days later, the Trail Blazers dismantled the Clippers 111-92 as 3.5-point home favorites.

Los Angeles Clippers vs Portland Trail Blazers Betting Pick
This game will be played at 10:00 PM ET at Staples Center
Why bet the Clippers:
✅ LA is riding a four-game winning streak, playing some tough defense against the mediocre rivals. The Clippers boast the third-best defensive rating in the NBA, yielding only 100.8 points per 100 possessions. They also rank 3rd in the opponent field goal percentage (42.0%) while leading the league in assists allowed per 100 possessions (19.9). On the other side, the Trail Blazers surrender 107.5 points (tied-15th in the NBA) and 27.9 assists per 100 possessions (29th), while their rivals shoot 37.0% from deep (24th). The Clippers look like a better defensive team in this matchup, and they’ve held the Trail Blazers to 39.0% shooting from the field across their previous two meetings.
✅ Paul George went bonkers in that heavy loss at Portland. He finished with 42 points on 15-for-24 shooting from the field and 6-for-9 from beyond the arc, but the rest of the starting lineup combined for a paltry 16 points. The Clippers must be fired up to bounce back in front of the home fans, and George will need some help from his teammates. PG-13 should dominate the Trail Blazers, who’ll have to lean on Robert Covington to stop him. However, apart from RoCo, there are no defensive stoppers in this Portland team.
✅ The Trail Blazers put an end to a seven-game losing streak against the Clippers with that 111-92 home victory. Portland is only 1-7 SU and 2-6 ATS over its last eight dates with LA, and the Clippers have comfortably won their previous five home games against the Trail Blazers while covering on all five occasions.
