PORTLAND – DENVER
Batum to score more than 14,5
Nicolas Batum obviously fixed problems he had with his shooting arm wrist and since then he is playing quite good. Since brake he played three games and scored 15 (5/14), 22 (9/14) and 18 points (6/14), and whats more important he finally got back his three point shot. In Rose Garden he has average of 17,7 points and on away games 13,5. Against Nuggets he played both games with 22 points. Blazers are quite dependant on their first five so starters like Batum get to play sometimes more than 40 minutes. Concidering tempo of this game, form, and possible absence of Gallinari i think this French should get another very solid game.
