Brooklyn finally put a team win together as they come in off a victory over in state rival New York.
Now, they’ll try for 2 in a row when they take on the Portland Trail Blazers and their young array of talent.
Portland has made it 2 straight as they had a momentum building win over the Thunder, followed up by a win over the Jazz. The Trail Blazers will try for 3 straight here behind Damien Lillard who is playing some stellar basketball.
Portland knew this season would a sort of rebuilding one.
After watching free agent after free agent go out the exit door, Damien Lillard was all that remained from a talented team. Lillard is flourishing in the star role as he continues to lead this Portland team to wins as of late.
Lillard has averaged 30.7 points to go along with 9.7 assists over the past 3 games.
After back to back wins, the Trail Blazers are once again thinking they have what it takes to make the playoffs as they just knocked off the team in front of them, the Utah Jazz. Portland will be going up against 3 sub par .500 Eastern Conference teams starting with these Nets here.
CJ McCollum has been the other consistent contributor for the Trail Blazers this season. He has shown signs of being the go to guy, but has also been slowed up, like his past 4 games as he’s shot 32.1 percent from the field. While that isn’t all that bad, he’s been a much better shooter than he’s showed as of late.
The Nets were on a 5 game losing streak and were looking like the worst team in the NBA by far.
Brooklyn was averaging just 82.6 points per game during their losing streak, which included an absolute dismantling at the hands of the Spurs 106-79.
However, they finally found themselves in the win column with a win over rival New York, 110-104. They led for a majority of the game as the Knicks could never get over the hump. Brooklyn shot 52% from the field in the win, which was easily their highest in quite some time.
G Bojan Bogdanovic finally got himself going which was a promising sign for the Nets. He had missed 16 straight shots over a 3 game span before going 4 of 5 in the win over New York.
Brooklyn has dropped 3 of 4 to the Trail Blazers, but grabbed the win in the latest head to head matchup 106-96 by on April 6th.
