NWSB managing editor Q brings us his Love Em & Hate Em recaps Monday night’s game between the Portland Trail Blazers vs. Phoenix Suns. The Blazers are officially out of the running for the 2012 playoffs. Coach Canales has been preaching defense, so he had to be extremely disappointed in last night’s effort. You could make a solid argument that J.J. Hickson has been Portland’s best player.
Jason Green weighs in with his Phoenix Suns vs. Portland Trailblazers Friday NBA basketball Preview and a free nba prediction to boot. NBA odds favor the Blazers by 9.5. The over/under is set at 180. The Suns are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games, Portland is 16-5-2 ATS in their last 23 home games. LeMarcus Aldridge, Wesley Matthews, and Gerald Wallace will be a big handful.
