The Cavaliers are also scuffling as of late, having lost 5 in a row. With the acquisition of Anthony for Portland and Damian Lillard hving a better chance to play in this game, I like the lineup of Anthony, Lillard, and McCollum. That is a trio tat could be very dangerous to go along with Hassan Whiteside once he is 100%. I'll take the Trail Blazers on the road in this one. Final score prediction, Portland will win and cover.
