NBA Betting: MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES at PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS – Game 3 (4/25)

PRO BASKETBALL — April 25

Game 3- NBA Playoffs
MEMPHIS at PORTLAND

(GetThatBet Line: Blazers -3.5, Total 189) — This might just be one of those cases where one team has the other’s number. Memphis has now defeated Portland eleven of the last twelve times these teams have met, and in four regular season meetings the Blazers topped 40% from the field only once. In this playoff series Portland has shot just 34% and 39%, and their stars have been lousy – LaMarcus Aldridge (37%) and Damian Lillard (27%). Do things drastically change? Arron Afflalo has been listed as probable, but with his shoulder problem we’re not sure that HE can shoot the ball. The Grizzlies, who have committed just fourteen turnovers, did not get great shooting from Marc Gasol or Zach Randolph the other night (just 9-31 combined) but they still had a clear edge in second-chance points (29-12) as well as points in the paint. This is just a matchup problem for Terry Stotts’ team, and we are willing to ride it, if we are getting points.
