Portland and Brooklyn will both be chasing back-to-back victories when they meet at the Moda Centre on Tuesday arvo (AEST).
The Trail Blaizers have endured a lacklastre opening half of the season, currently sitting outside the play-in bracket with an embarrassing 15-24 record.
Meanwhile, the Nets have continue to grow throughout the season, sitting 2nd in the Eastern Standings whilst holding the best ‘away’ record in the comp (15-3).
Neither team has been particularly good against the spread this campaign, though the Trail Blazers are especially pathetic at home, covering just one of six fixtures in Portland when starting as underdogs.
Both side come into this contest with no rest, so the fresh legs of road specialist Kyrie Irving should propel the Nets to a comfortable victory here.
