Mo Williams is expected to miss due to personal reasons for Portland. He was not back at practice on Monday. In case he misses more time; Earl Watson and C.J. McCollum will take his spot in the mean time.

Whats up with the low scores between these 2 in the past matchups? Do they know each other too well?

Just look up the matchups in the past and you will figure it out. Damian Lillard got one of his lowest scoring average vs opponent against OKC.

Durant and Aldrdige are running the show for their team. Most of the other players have been rather quiet. And don't forget that most of Portland's points this season came from 3's. Maybe you should you look up how OKC defended against the 3-point shooting in the games vs Portland; maybe thats the answer.

Are you trying to hint at an answer or just telling me to go search through numbers? Is the Lillard match up that big of a deal? Outside of one bad 3pt shooting night during one of the Trailblazer's losses (24%, 8/33) they've shot between 30% - 44% during their losses to OKC which fits their 38% season average so as far as numbers go I don't see OKC shutting down Portland's 3pt as the key to their low scores. Thanks for the feedback. I think you have something with the Lillard thing  BOLTY
