Portland Trailblazers @ Phoenix Suns
C.J. McCollum will be suspended for this game against the Suns. Damian Lillard is one of the best PGs in the league but he will miss McCollum tonight. The Trailblazers didn’t do much to get better this offseason. Evan Turner will need to play like he did in Boston after a let down of a season last year.
For the Suns, Alex Len will most likely miss this this game but they still have a core of young talented players. Josh Jackson should get a lot of minutes tonight. The Phoenix Suns guards will be able to blow by all of Portland’s defenders except for McCollum. I’ll take the Suns in their first game of the season.
Phoenix Suns (+1.5)
