The Portland Pilots are still looking for their first victory since December 21. The Portland Pilots are averaging 64.1 points on 40.7 percent shooting and allowing 75.1 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Marcus Shaver Jr. is averaging 15.2 points and 3.1 rebounds while JoJo Walker is averaging 12 points and 3.4 assists.

The Pilots are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games, 3-11 ATS in their last 14 vs. West Coast and 5-15 ATS in their last 20 games overall.

San Francisco -15
