Damian Lillard is averaging 26.3 points and 6.7 assists while CJ McCollum is averaging 21.3 points and four rebounds.

The Nets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Monday games, 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games playing on 2 days rest and 11-3 ATS in their last 14 vs. Western Conference. The Trail Blazers are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games playing on 1 days rest, 23-8-1 ATS in their last 32 vs. Eastern Conference and 39-19-1 ATS in their last 59 home games. The favorite is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings and the road team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The over is 12-3-1 in Trail Blazers last 16 home games. The under is 8-2 in Nets last 10 overall.
The Brooklyn Nets are playing decent basketball as of late, but they've been shaky on the road this season and even with their wins, they're still losing their last five games by an average of 5.8 points. The Portland Trail Blazers have been one of the best covering teams at home dating back to last season, and they're winning at home this year by an average of 8.1 points while shooting 47.7 percent from the field. When these teams met about a month ago, Portland won by 14 points on the road. There's also a lot of former Trail Blazers who play for the Nets, so they're very familiar with how this team wants to play. I'll lay the chalk with the Trial Blazers, as I'm just not that confident with the Nets on the road.
