Brake Line - 3 way fitting, one way only?

I am installing a new set of pre-bent brake lines in my 71 C-10 from InLine Tube. At the 3 way T fitting on the front circuit it seems to work best to have my line from the master cylinder come into a side port on the 3 way fitting, is this ok? I am thinking brake line pressure is the same whether it comes into the center port or the side ones, what do you guys think?

It is just a T fitting, so it wont matter how it is attached.
Part of Pascal's law states that pressure applied to a confined fluid at any point is transmitted undiminished throughout the fluid in all directions.
