Is there really any reason to bet on the Trail Blazers for the rest of the season? We know that they are going to be a big underdog in this game, certainly by a double digit margin. Matters are really only getting worse, too. F LaMarcus Aldridge has an ankle injury, as does G Wesley Matthews. G Nolan Smith has a knee problem, while G Elliot Williams has an Achilles injury that will keep him out for the whole year. F Nicolas Batum has a shoulder injury that has kept him out of the course of the last several weeks. We have no reason to believe that any of these men will be playing on Tuesday. The Clippers are still fighting for the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference playoffs. It really isn’t going to matter if they are going to care enough to fight for it. The good news for the Clips is that they have won five games in a row, covering four of the five, and there really isn’t all that much of a reason to think that they aren’t going to be able to post a double-digit victory regardless of who ends up playing in the game. Even the reserves for Head Coach Vinny Del Negro should have no problems taking care of the Trail Blazers, especially here at Staples Center.
Trail Blazers @ Clippers Pick: Los Angeles Clippers
Trail Blazers @ Clippers Final Score Prediction: Clippers 106 – Portland 89
