The Brooklyn Nets look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 111.2 points on 44.4 percent shooting and allowing 112.3 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Spencer Dinwiddie is averaging 20.6 points and 6.8 assists while Caris LeVert is averaging 18 points and 4.1 rebounds. Joe Harris is the third double-digit scorer and Taurean Prince is grabbing six rebounds. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 33.9 percent from beyond the arc and 74.7 percent from the free throw line. The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 48 rebounds per game.
The Los Angeles Clippers look to keep the ball rolling after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 116.2 points on 46.5 percent shooting and allowing 109.6 points on 43.7 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 26.9 points and 7.2 rebounds while Paul George is averaging 21.4 points and 3.8 assists. Lou Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Montrezl Harrell is grabbing 7.1 rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 37.1 percent from beyond the arc and 79.2 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 34.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.8 rebounds per game.
The Nets are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Los Angeles and 14-5 ATS in the last 19 meetings. The over is 14-3 in the last 17 meetings in Los Angeles and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The Brooklyn Nets may have a G League roster, but they've won two of their last three games and have covered some of these big underdog lines with ease. While the talent isn't there, the Nets have a roster full of guys who have been given a chance and they're playing hard and for a possible future NBA contract. The Los Angeles Clippers played yesterday, have nothing to play for locked in the second seed and are starting to rest guys. Blowing the doors off the Nets isn't what the Clippers are focused on right now.
Give me the points.
