*NBA ATS Matchup Report*

The Blazers have lost 3 straight to the Warriors and their main goal on D in this game is contain the solid backcourt of Golden State. Monta Ellis (23.1 ppg) has been playing great and Stephen Curry (15.1 ppg) has played well since coming back into the lineup.

The Warriors will have to play well on offense in this game, as their D only ranks 25th in the league.

The Blazers played great D in last night’s game holding the Grizzlies to only 84 points on 37.8% shooting.

Marcus Camby was a question mark in yesterday’s game, but he played and pulled down 22 boards. He and LeMarcus Aldridge will be a big time handful for the Warriors since they only rank 24th in the league in rebounds per game.

Once again the Blazers got away with turning the rock over, as they had 22 turnovers in last night’s game.

They cannot keep doing that, as they have to be more careful with the ball.

Aldridge had a solid game last night going for 23 points on 8/13 shooting and he got a lot of help with 4 other players scoring in double figures.

The Warriors do not have a lot of size, especially with C Kwame Brown out until February, so if Camby and Aldridge can shut down F David Lee (18.3 ppg 10.7 rpg) they should win this game.

One of the main reasons the Blazers won last night, besides their solid D, was that they attacked the rim and got to the free throw line 36 times.

They need to do the same tonight against Golden State, who do not have much of an inside presence.

Blazers vs. Warriors Free Prediction

This season the Blazers are 10-7-1 ATS with an O/U record of 7-11 and the Warriors are 7-9 ATS with an O/U record 8-8.

In some betting trends for this Western Conference match up the Blazers are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 road games, 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games as a road underdog, and they have an Under record of 5-1 in their last 6 games.

The Warriors are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a home favorite, and they have an Over record of 6-2 in their last 8 games.

Pick: Even though the Blazers have struggled on the road this season I think they will win this game with their D and snap their 3-game losing streak to the Warriors.
