It’s refreshing to hear Portland All-Star point guard Damian Lillard (26.3) points per game express his interest in signing a long term contract with the Trailblazers. The former Weber State University product recently told ESPN reporters he’s not chasing an NBA title which doesn’t mean he won’t compete at a high level. Portland has plated one game without Lillard this season a 120-111 victory over Atlanta.
Head Coach Terry Stotts probably won’t have his leading scorer in the lineup tonight, but he still has C.J. McCollum (21.0) ppg to take over in the backcourt. The Trailblazers offense puts up an average of (113.3) ppg on (46.3%) shooting from the field. However, their (36.7%) shooting from beyond the three-point line is the 27th league-wide. Portland allows opponents (110.3) ppg with the (36.7%) on three-point shooting is what they need to worry about tonight. Portland has held Brooklyn to 100 points or less just one time in the past seven meeting, and that was in the 2014 season.
OVER bettors seem to like this game tonight with the total trending upward.
The NBA Handicappers at Charliessports.com has a FREE PICK on Portland-2, we don’t like the TOTAL with the status of Lillard coupled with Brooklyn having injuries to Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert.
Bovada.Lv list the Portland Trailblazers win total at 42 games for 2018-19.
Joe Harris wasn’t the only member of the Brooklyn Nets to have his name called on NBA All-Star weekend. Guard D’Angelo Russell (20.3) ppg was chosen to play in the classic. Head coach Kenny Atkinson has fans in the largest borough of Gotham believing the franchise is heading in the right direction.
Despite the fact they’ve dropped six of ten SU they compete every time they take the floor. The Dinwiddie injury happened at the worst possible time, but Atkinson isn’t making any excuses; it’s the next man up attitude.
The Nets (112.3) ppg they average on offense is the 14th league-wide while the (112.7) they allow opponents is 21st. Former New York Knicks standout post player Enes Kanter returns to the area and loves playing against Brooklyn. Kanter averages (22.3) ppg against the Brooklyn Nets and is looking forward to facing Nets center Jarrett Allen tonight.
This Sports handicapper is aware Brooklyn is a prolific three-point shooting team, and they understand Joe Harris is a proven commodity which will be needed tonight.
