Over 40.5 ( D.Lillard ) Points & assists by the player - Including Overtime
Much higher usage rate with Nurkic and McCollum not playing, he went over points, assist yesterday of 47; I expect a similar performance today;
No McCollum so Lillard should have a huge usage rate and if Portland plans to win this one, they will have to go trough him the whole night.
-McCollum wasn't play int he last two seasons (this and last one) he had these PA numbers: 41 against Spurs (blowout); 55 against Dallas; 68 against GSW; 40 against OKC (small BO) and 46 against Miami;
-Also, he played a lot in those games. Last game he would play 40 if there wasn't for blowout;
-Currently he is averaging PA of 35 in 36 minuts. If he plays 40, and we know that McCollum isn't playing (and neither is Nurkic) its safe to assume that he should go over it (maybe on points alone)
