The Nets are off to a 3-1 start on this critical eight-game road trip and the team will battle the Portland Trailblazers in Portland tonight. ?The Nets will then play games at the Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz before heading back East to play at the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Brooklyn has already clinched a playoff berth, and as the team looks to set a new franchise record by winning 21 road games this season?they have already won 19?the next four games still mark an important stretch for the team, but for many reasons.
