It will be the duel between two players in fantastic shape, power forward LaMarcus Aldridge (Portland Trail Blazers) and shooting guard Monta Ellis (Golden State Warriors). The average number of points of Aldridge per game is 19.1 with 8.5 rebounds. In the first game this season between these two teams a week ago, Aldridge made a double-double scoring 17 points and 12 rebounds, but his hand trembled ten seconds before the end of the game, and Ellis, who scored 26 points in the game, joined him missing a jumper with one seconds left. Portland won that game, 96:95, but because of such completions of games I prefer bets on quarter, in this case the first one. In that game, Portland won the first quarter, 21:18, so with only 39 scored points, very little for one NBA game. But, it is not unusual for Portland this season, they had 14:17 at Dallas, although that game ended with overall 201 points. In the last ten games, Trail Blazers had only once over 50.5 points in the first quarter - 52 points against Phoenix Suns at home. Golden State Warriors were close to this margin in almost every of the last ten games, but only three of them went over that - at home 51 points with Suns, 52 with Rocqets, and 53 at Mavericks. Last year, in four mutual duels, they showed that game from last week says nothing about their mutual clashes, since all four games ended with over 50.5 points in the first quarter - 66, 72, 56 and 66. Also, in five games before they surpassed this margin four times. Last week, they met each other, and now it will be different, they can show what kind of defense they play. We know - poor.
