How To Bet On Trail Blazers Nets – Nets Look To Defined Home Court Versus Blazers This Saturday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 11/25/2012 5:45:57 PM

The Brooklyn Nets have treaded above the .500 line thanks to a nearly perfect home record early on this sports betting season. Next up for the Nets at the Barclays Center is a Portland Trail Blazers’ team that is starting out a seven-game road trip at Brooklyn this Saturday. Portland has shown flashes throughout an inconsistent start to their year, but for Brooklyn it is about going out and executing every night regardless of what the other team brings. It appears as though the Nets will be in a fight with the New York Knicks for division supremacy all season, and defending home territory will be crucial to their overall success.

The Blazers are stuck in the bottom of their division after winning just two of their first five road games, and will face an uphill battle to reach the postseason. Portland is already a step ahead on the rebuild curve with rookie Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge, but experience will be among the keys to consistency going forward.

No rookie has led the Blazers in scoring since Sidney Wicks did it in 1971-72, but Lillard is right there with Aldridge for the team lead at 19.5 points per game and has averaged a team-high 5.8 assists. Aldridge is still the go-to scorer up front with 20.3 points per game, but the Blazers have appreciated how fast Lillard has adjusted to the game. JJ Hickson is another young piece that Portland has been able to rely on early with a team-high 10.6 rebounds to go with 10.3 points, and this core trio will be leaned on to take the Blazers to the next level in time.

Ironically, the players that have made the difference for the Nets early on this season were two of the key pieces they were willing to move to the Orlando Magic in exchange for Dwight Howard in Brook Lopez and Kris Humphries, who lead Brooklyn in points and rebounds respectively. Lopez has scored a team-high 18.7 points, while Humphries has averaged 9.4 rebounds. Both of those players has also played solid at the defensive end, helping the Nets to rank eighth in the NBA in points allowed. This team still relies on Deron Williams and Joe Johnson in the clutch, but they aren’t doing it alone.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Winning on the road is never easy, and the Blazers are a young team that has been inconsistent so far this season. Look for Brooklyn to defend its home territory and take care of business down the stretch, as they lock in another key online sportsbook home win in their ongoing battle with the Knicks for division supremacy.
