New Jersey is playing its best basketball of the season right now. The Nets have won four of their previous six including a 2-1 mark on their current four game road trip, with their only loss coming by four to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Kris Humphries has been leading the charge lately, with double-doubles in back-to-back games. Gerald Wallace has also stepped up, averaging slightly over 20 points per game over a three-game span.
Portland on the other hand continues to be a seesaw type of team. In their last nine dates, the Blazers have alternated wins and losses with their last game a defeat at the hands of the Utah Jazz.
Humphries will have his hands full with LaMarcus Aldridge. The Texas product is scoring better than 21 points per game this season.
Once New Jersey gets tonight over with, six of their next seven contests are at the Prudential Center. The first two games are against the Washington Wizards and Cleveland Cavaliers, so Avery Johnson's group could potentially get on a very nice roll here in the early stages of April.
