For a number of different reasons I think the Blazers will find a way to get the job done at the end of the night. Portland was in a tail spin until big man LaMarcus Aldridge returned from injury early to pour in 26 points and grab nine boards in a 103-96 win over Washington on Saturday, helping his team end a two-game slide: “I’m not into the rah-rah story," Aldridge said. "I just wanted to come back and play. I wanted to test it out at home, and versus these guys because I felt they were a physical team, and if I could play against these guys then that would be good." From a situational stand point, this is a very important game for Portland, after facing the lowly Nets in the opener of its four game trip, it then travels to Cleveland and Atlanta respectively. And in my opinion, that’s bad news for a Brooklyn team that has allowed opponents to hit 24 of 54 from behind the arc while losing its last two by a whopping combined 74 points. Brooklyn comes in in dissaray, it finished a 1-2 road trip by falling 108-73 in Utah. Note that the Nets will once again be without the services of Deron Williams to a rib injury, a 10th straight game the star guard will sit. And note that Portland is 4-1 ATS this year off an upset win as an underdog, while Brooklyn is already 0-3 ATS this season after playing three consecutive road games. I think the spread should be a little bit larger, consider a second look at PORTLAND in this one.
