Portland Trail Blazers vs Brooklyn Nets 4/30/2021 Betting Odds
Portland Trail Blazers Betting
The Portland Trail Blazers are sitting on top of the play-in tournament position and have the seventh best record in the NBA Western Conference standings. This team still aims to get out of the playin tournament as they trail the Dallas Mavericks by just one game. The Blazers are right on track winning their last two games to keep a steady lead over the Memphis Grizzlies. Damian Lillard will need to bring “Dame Time” for the next few games in order to chase for a better playoff position. CJ McCullom has been great for them and the team has been very healthy so far with only Zach Collins on the injured list.
Players to watch: D. Lillard PG 57 GP 57 GS 35.8 MIN 28.2 PTS 0.5 OR 3.7 DR 4.2 REB 7.4 AST 0.9 STL 0.3 BLK 3.1 TO 1.6 PF 2.4 AST/TO 24.39 PER
C. McCollum SG 37 GP 37 GS 33.8 MIN 23.3 PTS 0.7 OR 3.4 DR 4.1 REB 4.8 AST 1.1 STL 0.5 BLK 1.4 TO 2 PF 3.4 AST/TO 21.31 PER
N. Powell SF 18 GP 18 GS 33.7 MIN 16.7 PTS 0.9 OR 2.2 DR 3.1 REB 2 AST 1.5 STL 0.4 BLK 1.8 TO 2.4 PF 1.1 AST/TO 14.04 PER.
Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Brooklyn Nets may be the best team in the NBA Eastern Conference so far but their stars have been trying to keep their legs intact. They own a 1.5 game lead over the chasing Philadelphia 76ers with Kevin Durant expected to rest this next match. Kyrie Irving is listed as questionable for this game and that gives the backcourt of Damian Lillard and CJ McCullom lesser things to think about. This will be a good test for other players to step up with Jeff Green expected to lead. Even with the injuries, the Nets are still tough to beat as they run Steve Nash and Mike D’Antoni’s run-and-gun system.
Players to Watch: K. Durant PF 26 GP 23 GS 32.5 MIN 27.1 PTS 0.3 OR 6.5 DR 6.8 REB 5.1 AST 0.7 STL 1.3 BLK 3.6 TO 1.9 PF 1.4 AST/TO 26.77 PER
K. Irving PG 46 GP 46 GS 35.2 MIN 26.9 PTS 1.1 OR 3.9 DR 5 REB 6.4 AST 1.3 STL 0.6 BLK 2.5 TO 2.6 PF 2.5 AST/TO 24.42 PER
J. Harden SG 34 GP 34 GS 37.3 MIN 25.4 PTS 0.9 OR 7.8 DR 8.7 REB 11 AST 1.3 STL 0.7 BLK 4.1 TO 2.4 PF 2.7 AST/TO 25.03 PER.
