Friday November 10th the Brooklyn Nets arrive at the Moda Center to play the Portland Trail Blazers. The Blazers swept the Nets the past two seasons and hold the all-time edge 61-23 win.
Despite showing some dazzle to start the season the Nets have settled in closer to their true identity. Brooklyn are in the midst of a five game Western Conference road trip. In their last six games the Nets are 1-5 with the lone win coming against the Suns.
Things won’t get better anytime soon as the Nets face nine likely playoff squads (including Portland) in a row.
Of those seven are top ten defenses and the two who aren’t played for the title last season! It’s conceivable the Nets could go winless until November 29th when the play Dallas.
D’Angelo Russell has assimilated well to his new home punctuated by career best in points (20.4), rebounds (4.6), assists (5.6), free throw attempts (5.2) and field goal percent (45.2%).
Like their opponent the Nets are nursing injury. Trevor Booker (back) has missed the past three games and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson remains a game time decision with a sore right hip.
The Nets rank 21st offensively (102.0), 22nd defensively (106.8) and have the 25th ranked net with a minus -4.8 differential.
Portland Trail Blazers
The most surprising asset of the Blazers season is their rebounding prowess. Portland rank fourth in offensive/total rebounds and seventh defensively.
These offensive rebounds lead to second chance opportunities often shot from behind the arc.
The Blazers boast the fifth most efficient (38.8%) three point field goal efficiency. Coincidently, the Blazers also excel at perimeter defense where they hold opponents to 32.6% (5th). This equates to Portland allowing the fewest treys by opponents (8.0) in the Association
Damian Lillard is quickly becoming Mr. Clutch with his ability to knock down game winning shots. Lillard is producing game averages of 25.7 points, 5.4 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 1.2 steals. Although his 3-point field goal percent (31.6%) is below the league average he seldom misses when the game is on the line.
The Blazers enter the night following a loss to the Grizzlies and will be missing the services of Al-Farouq Aminu who is out nursing a sprained right ankle.
This leaves Portland short in depth upfront where the Blazers will miss Aminu’s 9.4 points, 8.1 rebounds, 43.3% perimeter efficiency and defense.
Overall the Blazers rank 14th offensively (105.1), are an impressive 4th defensively (100.3) and 6th in net with a positive +4.8 differential.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Portland Trail Blazers NBA Prediction:
Brooklyn was expected to be a lottery team and look to be on track to make that a reality. That said, this squad is scrappy and will provide constant aggression. On paper there is no contest, but if Portland gets too confident and relaxes the Nets are more than capable of pulling off the upset.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Blazers -8.5
The Nets who generate the fastest pace in the Association will be forcing their will upon Portland. Yet, in spite of the injuries to key contributors the Blazers are simply a better squad on paper and takes this match 115-103.
