There are only three NBA games slated for Tuesday, Nov. 29, including a Western Conference showdown between the Portland Trail Blazers and LA Clippers. The slumping Trail Blazers desperately need a win tonight after dropping six of their last eight.

Now, the Blazers must deal with a Clippers squad that's fired up following a 114-100 victory against the Indiana Pacers over the weekend. LA center Ivica Zubac looked like prime Shaquille O'Neal in the win, racking up 31 points and 29 rebounds in the best game of his career.

Trail Blazers vs. Clippers Prediction & Pick

Expect the Trail Blazers' offense to struggle tonight as they'll be without Damian Lillard (calf) for the fifth consecutive game. Portland's offense has looked putrid without its leading playmaker, being held to under 100 points in two of the last three outings.

While the Clippers are set to be without Kawhi Leonard (ankle), Paul George (hamstring) and John Wall (knee) for the game, they proved on Sunday that they don't need star power to grind out a win. LA still has one of the better defenses in the Association even without the trio, so look for the Clip Gang to get things done on the road again.

Final Score Prediction: Clippers: 110 | Trail Blazers: 98

Trail Blazers vs. Clippers Best Bet

There's no reason to expect a lot of points in this contest. For starters, both teams rank top-10 in fewest points allowed per game. On top of that, both offenses have been terrible, ranking in the bottom 10 in points per game.

With Leonard, George and Lillard missing tonight's festivities, the makings are perfect for a low-scoring affair. Back the under on the 211-point total as the best bet.

Bet: Under 211 Points (-110)
