As we approach the All-Star weekend, just the 2 games will be beamed into our lounge rooms this week. It’s a Thursday double-header, with the first game involving Kobe and the Lakers at LeBron’s house in Cleveland for the last time. The following game matches the underwhelming-to-date Houston Rockets in Oregon against the Portland Trail Blazers in what’s been a rebuilding season for them.

Thursday, February 11th, 11:00am (AEST) @ Quicken Loans Arena, Ohio

  • After losing back-to-back games to Charlotte and Boston, the Cavs have won their last 2 by a collective 35 points against the Pelicans and Kings. They’re 37-14 (21-2 at home) but have only covered the line in 2 of their last 5 games.
  • The Lakers managed back-to-back wins against the Timberwolves and Pelicans but have fallen to the Spurs and Pacers in their last 2 matches. The Lakers are just 5-25 on the road this season but have covered the line in 14 of those away games.
  • Cleveland is averaging 107.3PPG through their last 10 matches at home whilst giving up 98.1PPG to their opponents to hold a 6-4 over/under record through that same stretch. For the season, they’re 25-26 over/under including 14-11 at home.
  • LA is scoring just 96.8PPG and allowing 103.4PPG in their last 10 road games, going 5-5 over/under through that period. They hold a 24-30 over/under season record, including an even 15-15 away from home.
  • Starting Odds: LA Lakers $11.00 at Cleveland Cavaliers $1.04

Thursday, February 11th, 1:30pm (AEST) @ Moda Center at the Rose Quarter, Oregon

  • Portland have won 7 of their last 8 games to now sit 9th in the West with a 26-27 record for the season, just a single win behind today’s opponents in 8th. They’ve also covered the line in 10 of their last 14 matchups, contributing to a 29-24 record against the line (14-12 at home).
  • With the line-up they have, many are surprised at the Rockets’ results to date this season. To have arguably 2 franchise players on their roster and be 8th in the West at 27-27 is unheard of, and they’ll be hoping for a strong post-All Star run. They’ve lost 5 of their last 7 but have won 5 of their last 10 road games. They also hold a 23-31 record against the line (11-14 on the road).
  • The Trail Blazers have managed 106.6PPG in their last 10 home games, conceding only 99PPG in that same stretch. That 10 game stretched produced 6 games under the total points market, and 4 over, contributing to their 27-25-1 over/under record for the year (13-12-1 at home).
  • The Rockets have averaged 108PPG in their last 10 road games, but have given up 117PPG in the same stretch, the 2nd worst in the league. Due to their poor defensive efforts, they’ve managed to go over the games total in 8 of their last 10 away games, contributing to their 27-25-1 over/under season record (15-10 away).
  • Starting Odds: Houston Rockets $2.65 at Portland Trail Blazers $1.50
