Atlanta Hawks vs. Portland Trail Blazers CashBet Wagering Analysis
This is going to be a good matchup between both teams who have two exciting point guards right now in the league. Trae Young and Damian Lillard will surely be a great watch but it will boil down on who’s supporting cast will come out and help their leader.
Trae Young Looking for Help
The Atlanta Hawks are just looking like the same team they are last year before Trae Young got injured. During their last game he just finished with 8 points and much is on his shoulders if the team wants to secure a win. Clint Capela has been filling in the role when Young is having a hard time but the team sorely misses the supporting cast that they acquired during the offseason. They are Rajon Rondo, Danilo Gallinari and Bogdan Bogdanovic who are just unfortunately out with injuries. John Collins need to step up big time and find a way to produce better numbers than what he is doing to fill in the holes.
Where is Dame Time?
The Portland Trail Blazers made some good moves during the off-season but the pieces are not fitting in. Damian Lillard is the team’s leader and his assists are down while the turnovers are up. C.J. McCullom has been their best player but in order for this team to become significant in the NBA Western Conference, Damian Lillard needs to find his “Dame Time” persona. Jusuf Nurkic is out once again with a hand fracture and Enis Kanter will be stepping up. This team is very much complete from all positions and it is up to Lillard to find a way to make things fit together.
Atlanta Hawks vs. Portland Trail Blazers Head-to-Head with Spread
The point guards Damian Lillard and Trae Young will be canceling each other but CJ McCullom will be a big difference. The volume shooter will be the x-factor for the Blazers while Clint Capela and John Collins will try to outwit the Blazers’ depleted frontcourt. Expect Carmelo Anthony to come out big as well with no Hawk be able to check him.
