Advice and prediction
Can the Brooklyn Nets have a bounce-back defensive performance after their nightmare in Sacramento on Tuesday?
According to the trends early in the year, the under would seem to be the best bet on Tuesday. The under is 8-4-2 in Blazers games this season and 9-6 in Nets games – but can this lineup make a massive adjustment in the final game of a road swing and avoid a half-hearted effort after Kevin Durant just called out his teammates publicly? I don’t have much faith in that happening, so I’m taking the over here on a total that is likely to rise before tipoff.
Prediction: Blazers 123, Nets 110
