The Portland Trail Blazers and the Golden State Warriors, two rivals in the Western Conference, will play each other on Tuesday at Chase Center. The Warriors have won two straight games, while the Trail Blazers have just defeated the Houston Rockets. This contest is expected to be fiercely competitive because both clubs are vying for a postseason position.

Injury Report

A few Trail Blazers players are labelled as questionable for Tuesday’s matchup with the Warriors. Jusuf Nurkic, a centre, and Justise Winslow, a forwards, are both out with injuries to their calves and ankles. Ryan Arcidiacono, a guard, will also be out due to a back ailment. While making progress in his treatment, Anfernee Simons’ return date is still unknown.

The Warriors will be missing small forwards Andrew Wiggins due to personal matters, and point guard Stephen Curry’s lower leg ailment keeps him out of action. Moreover, guard Gary Payton II is currently recovering from a core muscle issue, while forwards Andre Iguodala has been ruled out due to a hip injury.

Prediction

Both clubs have demonstrated their ability to score points despite the injuries. Damian Lillard leads the Trail Blazers’ explosive offence, but Kelly Oubre Jr. and Jordan Poole make up the Warriors’ powerful backcourt.

We anticipate a high-scoring contest, with the Trail Blazers winning by a final score of 130-122. Portland’s offence has been efficient lately, and we think that against the weak Warriors defence, they will continue to score freely.

Moneyline

The Trail Blazers, who are viewed as the underdogs in this contest, are the favorite according to the moneyline. Although the Warriors have the home court edge, it is tough to predict the outcome when Curry and Wiggins aren’t present and the Trail Blazers just defeated the Rockets.

Against the Spread

For this game, we advise staying away from the spread. The Trail Blazers have a dismal record against the spread in their last 39 meetings in Golden State, whilst the Warriors have done well against the spread in their most recent games.

Also, it is challenging to confidently forecast the result of this game because both sides are without important players.

OVER/UNDER

Our prediction for the total is OVER 235.5.

The OVER has come in five of the Trail Blazers’ last six games, indicating that recent games involving them have been high-scoring affairs. Meanwhile, the Warriors have a strong offence that averages 118.3 points per game, which ranks second in the NBA.

We anticipate this game to be a shootout with plenty of points scored on both ends of the court because both sides are without key defenders.
