Wednesday's games

Portland Trail Blazers at New Orleans Pelicans (-3, 231.5)

Fortenbaugh: Entering Tuesday night's showdown at Oklahoma City, Portland had played 13 games since CJ McCollum fractured his left foot. Guess what? Those 13 contests averaged a staggering 230.4 points per game thanks, in large part, to a franchise that ranks 29th in defensive rating and 25th in points allowed.
