NBA Premium Picks have been winning at an 81.3% rate and will continue through the 2016 NBA Finals in 2016. The (9-14) Portland Trailblazers of the NBA Western Conference Northwest Division will be in the “GRAND CANYON STATE” for a conference matchup. Portland will take on the (10-13) Phoenix Suns of the Western Conference Pacific in 2015 NBA action. The game is at Talking Stick Resort Arena in downtown Phoenix, Arizona. Tip-Off time is at 9:30 PM EST. The game is on Friday, December, 11th 2015. The Best Sports Handicapper believes the Portland Trailblazers are playing good basketball despite losing two of their best players in free agency. Phoenix has some of the best young talents in the NBA. Management must stay patient and let head coach Jeff Hornacek run the show from the bench. The Opening betting line has Phoenix as a four-point Home Favorite Against The Spread. The Betting Odds total is 209-points for Friday’s game.
The 2015-16 Portland Trailblazers have lost their last two straight up on the road. Portland lost at Cleveland their last game on December 8th, 105-100. Portland is fourth in the Northwest Division, five games out of first place. Head Coach Terry Stotts is in his fourth season on the bench in “RIP CITY”. The former longtime assistant is doing an admirable job, despite losing stars LaMarcus Aldridge, Nicholas Batum and Wesley Matthews in the offseason. The Portland offense ranks 13th league wide scoring the basketball. All Star Point Guard Damian Lillard is the team leader scoring the basketball and averages seven assists per game. Center Mason Plumlee and guard C.J. McCollum also have impressive numbers in various categories. The Blazers must learn how to close out games in the final quarter. Portland blew an 18-point lead in their last game at Cleveland. The key to a Portland win Friday is to play for forty-eight minutes.
The Phoenix Suns have won their last two NBA contests. Phoenix returned home after a six-game road trip to beat Orlando 107-104 on December, 9th. Unfortunately, Phoenix plays in the same division as the “RED HOT” Golden State Warriors. The Sun are currently third in the Pacific, 13-games out of the division lead. The sun offense ranks third in scoring league-wide putting up a little over 105 ppg. The defense is 26th out of 30 teams in the NBA. Guard Eric Bledsoe is the team leader in scoring, assists, and steals. Point Guard andKentucky alumni Brandon Knight is second on the team scoring the basketball. Phoenix has four former University of Kentucky Wildcats on the roster and all play on the perimeter. Center Alex Len is making huge strides with the guidance of veteran Tyson Chandler. On paper, the Phoenix Suns have the potential to be as good as the Golden State Warriors but it will take some time. The key to a Phoenix win is to play their style of basketball Friday.
