I think good value on Portland here. They are coming off a heartbreaking OT loss but K. Love looked like he was still feeling the effects of his injury. Anthony Davis ate him up last night and no Pek for Minnesota. I don't see how the wolves stop Lopez and Aldridge. Blazers have a much better bench which is usually a factor in B2B games

I'm a huge Portland fan, been one for 20+ years.  But our bench this year is garbage.  Portland winning is contingent on the starters playing well, especially Lillard.  He broke out of a mini-funk last night against Indiana and we still lost (but covered the spread).  The Blazers made a couple of bone head plays in OT and also couldn't get a rebound against Indiana.  

I did take Portland as a pick against Minnesota.  I believe we are going to be fired up after last nights loss.  Also if Love is injured (or doesn't play his best) I don't think Minnesota has a prayer.  Without his rebounding, Portland will not have the same problems as they did against Indiana. 

Also I feel like Lillard is a "heat" player, meaning he usually has a streak where he plays extremely well then cools off.  I believe he will play well tonight.

Portland Pick.
