- Portland Trail Blazers Under 113.5 Points
- Julius Randle Over 8.5 Rebounds
Portland Trail Blazers Under 113.5 Points
The Knicks are one of the league’s most efficient teams on the defensive end. They rank first in opponent points in the paint per game (45.6), third in opponent effective field goal percentage (52.7%), and rank in the top 10 in most defensive statistical categories.
Tonight they take on a Trail Blazers team who have struggled on the offensive side of the ball over their last three games averaging 107.3 on 46% shooting from the floor.
The last time these two teams met up, the Blazers shot well from the floor at 49.4%, however they earned most of their points from the charity stripe shooting 38-of-51 from the free throw line ,which really impacted the score. Expect the Knicks to play a lot tighter on the defensive end and hopefully limit their fouls.
Julius Randle Over 8.5 Rebounds
For the Knicks, Julius Randle enters this contest averaging 10.3 rebounds per game, which ranks ninth in the NBA this season. His rebounding total is set pretty low at 8.5 on most books. Looking at that number, he’s gone over 8.5 rebounds in 47 of his 70 games this season (67.1% of his games this season).
Dating back to 2020 in the series head-to-head, Randle has contributed huge minutes when these two teams met up and he’s been active on both sides of the floor. He’s averaged 10.3 boards per contest throughout that six game stretch playing no less than 30 minutes.
With the Knicks capable of clamping down on defense, their efficiency inside of the paint, and the Blazers’ rebounding struggles — ranking 27th in total rebounds per game — expect another big night out of Randle on both ends of the floor.
