The Trail Blazers are in an interesting spot. They are playing their third game since Monday against the Pacers, and it’s the second game of a back-to-back. But it’s also the start of a seven-game home stand in Portland, where the Blazers could get comfortable and find a groove. The Blazers, 10th in the league in pace, beat the Sacramento Kings 132-126 Wednesday night for their fourth straight win.
The Pacers, who acquired Caris LeVert as part of a blockbuster trade Wednesday, played back-to-back on Monday and Tuesday, with this Blazers game being their third of a five-game road trip (also their third contest in four days). We could see a spot here where the Pacers begin to feel a little road fatigue, especially after defeating the Warriors, who play at the third-fastest pace in the league, on Tuesday.
With the Blazers favored by 2.5 and the game total at 229, they should try to push the pace and wear down the Pacers — if Portland still has the legs to do it.
