1 unit on 1st ½ Total UNDER 115 -105 (risk 1 to return 1.95) RESULT: LOSS
Portland evened the series at 2-2 with a 115-95 win on Saturday, and the game went UNDER by 17.5 points as the Trail Blazers clamped down defensively on Nikola Jokic, who scored only 16 points while the Nuggets shot just 34%, and Denver was held to 47 points in the first half in Game 4. Look for the same intensity on the defensive end tonight by the Blazers as that is their best chance of winning the series. Jusuf Nurkic did not foul out as he did in the previous two games, and that was a huge factor in keeping Jokic in check. Look for Nurkic to start off this game the same way keeping the defensive pressure on the Nuggets. Take the First-Half UNDER.
