Nets vs Trail Blazers Preview

Portland will travel to Brooklyn on Friday for a battle versus the Nets. For the latest NBA betting trends and NBA free picks on Friday’s game, check out our Nets vs Trail Blazers preview below.

Nets Are Getting Hot

The Brooklyn Nets have been playing much better basketball ever since Kevin Durant returned to the court. They were unable to come away with a win against the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday, but most of that is because they weren’t able to have Kyrie Irving on the court due to the Covid mandates in Brooklyn.

Kevin Durant did finish that game with 23 points, but was unable to do enough for Brooklyn to walk away with the win.

On the season, Brooklyn has the 15th rated net rating, the seventh-ranked offensive rating, and the 23rd ranked defensive rating.

Blazers Looking For Any Win

A few weeks ago, it seemed likely that the Portland Trail Blazers were going to be able to sneak into the playoffs. Unfortunately for them, they had to deal with some more injuries, and now it looks as if they’re not going to make the Western Conference playoffs. They have only won two of their last eight games and are going to be coming into this one on a two-game losing streak.

In their most recent game, they lost by 30 points to a below-average New York Knicks team. Josh Hart was able to lead the way in the loss, but he only had 17 points.

On the season, Portland has the 26th rated net rating, the 24th ranked offensive rating, and the 29th ranked defensive rating.

Free NBA Picks — Nets vs Trail Blazers

For this game, I like the Brooklyn Nets to win by 10-plus and for Kevin Durant to have over 25-plus points.

I think that this is a game that Brooklyn is going to easily be able to take care of business in despite not having Kyrie Irving. If they did have Kyrie Irving, I would probably go with Brooklyn to win by 15 plus, but since they don’t, I’m going to have them to just win by 10-plus and Durant with the points.
