The Brooklyn Nets are hosting a Friday night NBA regular season game against the Portland Trail Blazers. The Nets, being one of the title contenders, have been performing solidly when their stars are on the floor. They are sitting in the 8th position of the Eastern Conference with a record of 36 wins and 34 losses.
The Blazers, on the other hand, are having quite a tough season this year. It's still up for debate if they will make it to the playoffs — they still have a chance, but many are skeptical. Portland is sitting at the 12th seed of the Western Conference with a record of 26 and 42.
This matchup will somewhat be a 2nd string matchup for both teams as most of their starters are out.

Brooklyn Nets just took the league by storm after breaking some records in the past 2 weeks. Kyrie Irving just scored 50 points on 19 shot attempts on March 9, then Kevin Durant followed with scoring 53 last Monday. And after everyone thinks that the dust has settled down, Irving broke the franchise record by dropping a career-high 60 points on Wednesday.
These two stars are monsters on the court, and they will carry the team into the playoffs. However, we all know the story of part-time Kyrie and how he is ineligible to play on the home court due to vaccination issues, so he will not be playing against the Blazers. Apart from him, Joe Harris, Lamarcus Aldridge and Ben Simmons are also listed as out, while Seth Curry is listed as questionable.
Portland Trail Blazers
Portland's journey this season has been pretty bumpy. They decided that the formula they have been trying to work on is not working, and that's why they are starting to rebuild the team mid-season to pursue the playoffs. They let go of CJ McCollum to the Pelicans, and in return, they acquired Josh Hart and a few draft compensation.
For this matchup against the Nets, the 2nd string of Blazers will be mostly playing as their starters Damian Lillard, Jusuf Nurkic, Anfernee Simons, as well as Eric Bledsoe and Joe Ingles are out.
Bet on Brooklyn Nets vs Portland Trail Blazers
With Kevin Durant in mind and how most of the Blazers starters are out, it is highly likely that the Nets will take this one.
