With injuries and changes to the lineup every night, the Nuggets are struggling to hold things together down the stretch, however, with hard work and dedication, have been able to win the games in the end. As we head into tonight’s game, we do not know who will be sitting due to rest, which makes it incredibly hard to have strong confidence in this Nuggets squad. A fact that has been mirrored in the odds which favor a Trail Blazers team that would normally be the underdog. Importantly, the Blazers are also fighting for the 6th seed, in a dead heat with the Lakers who play the Pelicans today. With that in mind, we are sure to see another stellar performance from Damian Lillard. In fact, consider the points + assists prop bet for 35.5 or more for Lillard.
We will see just how resilient the Nuggets are tonight so be sure to tune and have fun watching an always exciting matchup!
