Portland Trailblazers vs. Brooklyn Nets Preview

On the season the Blazers are 39-36-1 ATS and they have an O/U record of 36-39-1 and the Nets are 36-38-2 ATS and they have an O/U record of 36-41.

This season the Nets are 16-20 at home and the Blazers are 19-18 on the road.

In their last games the Blazers beat the New Orleans Hornets 99-90 and the Nets lost to the Atlanta Hawks 131-99.

[dfads params=’groups=63742&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

The Nets had won 6 straight, but in their last game they were embarrassed losing badly to the Hawks by 32 points. They are in the 7th spot in the East with a ½ game lead over the Boston Celtics and 1.5 games up on the Indiana Pacers. Brooklyn is a 7-point home betting favorite facing a Portland team that may rest some key players tonight.

The Blazers have won 2 in a row and 4 of their last 5 and while they have won the division title they may not host a first round series where they will likely face the Spurs or Clippers, who are both surging as of late.

Earlier this season at Portland the Blazers beat the Nets 97-87.

[dfads params=’groups=63727&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

The Blazers have won 10 of their last 13 games facing the Nets.

The Blazers will likely rest leading scorer LeMarcus Aldridge and Nicolas Batum (9.6 ppg) for tonight’s game.

The Nets forgot to play defense in their loss to the Hawks where they allowed Atlanta to shoot almost 60% from the floor.

The play of Brook Lopez and Deron Williams has been one of the main reasons the Nets won 6 straight and in the Nets last 6 home games Lopez has averaged 27.8 ppg and 11.7 rpg. However, these 2 only combined to score 21 points in the loss to the Hawks.

With Aldrige likely resting tonight Damian Lillard, who went for 28 points and 10 assists in the earlier season win over the Nets, will have to lead the team.

[dfads params=’groups=63741&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

Portland has the league’s 10th ranked defense in terms of opponents’ points allowed, and they face a Nets’ squad that has averaged 109.5 ppg in winning 4 straight at home.
