Portland Trail Blazers vs. Brooklyn Nets, conferences clash game. The Blazers need to win to keep from losing the playoff spot. For now, the eighth place in the Western Conference for the playoffs is owned by the Blazers, but for very little. The Nets do not need to strain, the team is “safe” in the seventh place of the Eastern Conference.
Portland Trail Blazers: Winning over all things.
The Trail Blazers are struggling to stay in a playoff spot. So far the team has a good record at 34-39. Those numbers are enough to get into the postseason. Today is the last game of the regular season for the Trail Blazers. 4-2 in the last six. The team won the last game against the Mavericks 134-131. It only remains to pray that the other teams in the conference lose games.
The team is scoring an average of 114.6 points per game, 42.07 FG points, 80.3% free throw shots, 12.72 three pointers, 20.42 assists and 28.47 points per quarter. The defense allows up to 115.9 points per game, 41.57 FG points, 77.2% free throw shots and 13.54 three pointers.
Damian Lillard is leading the team, as in previous years, with 29.8 points per game, 39.7% three pointers and 88.80% free throw shots. CJ McCollum is second averaging out of twenty with 22.2 points per game and 45.1% FG points. Ariza and Swanigan are not part of the team for fear of the coronavirus, they decided not to attend the bubble.
Brooklyn Nets: In the right place.
The Nets are in a comfort zone, the team just has to wait for this game to end to be officially in the postseason. But the Nets’ biggest concern will be the strategy heading into the playoffs. Despite the lack of important players, the Nets won five of the last seven games of the regular season.
Right now the Nets have slightly weak numbers to go to the playoffs. The team is scoring 111.5 points per game, 40.21 FG points, 74.6% free throw shots, 13.06 three pointers, 24.41 assists and 27.57 points per quarter. The defense is weak and they allow up to 112 points per game, 76.8% free throw shots and 12.17 three pointers.
A huge number of Nets players are infected with the Covid-19 coronavirus: Dinwiddie, Jordan and Waller-Prince. But it is estimated that other players are also infected and therefore were left off the roster this season. This season is not for Durant or Irving either. For now the leader is LeVert with 18.3 points per game.
