NBA Predictions: New York Knicks @ Portland Trail Blazers
Date: Thursday, March 14th, 10:30 ET
Location: Rose Garden, Portland, OR
NBA Betting Odds: Portland -3.5
Knicks vs. Trail Blazers NBA TV Schedule: TNT
The oddsmakers know that the Knicks are in a world of hurt right now. They have already played two games on this road trip, and they have been beaten by 29 by the Golden State Warriors and 23 by the Denver Nuggets. F Carmelo Anthony just has no energy in his leg, and he can’t get off of the court to take shots or defend all that comfortably. He shot just 3-of-12 against Denver on Wednesday, and that was a game that he should have been all sorts of amped up to play, knowing that it was the first time since he was traded from the Nuggets that he had the opportunity to come back to Denver. Portland has been playing well at home all season long, going 20-11 SU and 15-13-3 ATS. The Blazers did lose on Tuesday against the Memphis Grizzlies, but they got some points on the board, something that is really difficult to do against arguably the best defensive team in the league. Lay the points with Portland on Thursday night in a nationally televised clash.
