The Brooklyn Nets look for a win after winning eight of their last nine games. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 120.2 points on 50 percent shooting and allowing 115.2 points on 46.7 percent shooting. Kevin Durant is averaging 29 points and 5.3 assists while Kyrie Irving is averaging 28.1 points and 4.8 rebounds. James Harden is the third double-digit scorer and Joe Harris is dishing 1.8 assists. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 39.9 percent from beyond the arc and 79.7 percent from the free throw line. The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.8 rebounds per game.
The Utah Jazz look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Utah Jazz are averaging 116.6 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 108.2 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 24.6 points and 5.4 assists while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 18 points and 2.2 assists. Mike Conley is the third double-digit scorer and Rudy Gobert is grabbing 13.5 rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 39.7 percent from beyond the arc and 78.4 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 35.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.8 rebounds per game.
The Nets are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Jazz are 14-2 ATS in their last 16 home games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The over is 27-10 in Nets last 37 overall. The over is 5-1 in Jazz last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The Nets are 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Utah and 7-17 ATS in the last 24 meetings.
The Brooklyn Nets continue to find ways to win and cover at an insane rate and probably aren't a team you want to bet agains these days. However, the Nets are on the end of a back to back and are still playing without Kyrie and KD. We could see some tired legs from this group. The Utah Jazz aren't as hot as they once were, but they've still covered 14 of their last 16 games and are 27-15 against the spread on the season. Give me the Jazz.
