The Atlanta Hawks travel to the Barclays Center to take on the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night.
The Atlanta Hawks have been in decent form as they’ve won four of their first seven games and they will be eager to build some momentum after taking down the red-hot Wizards in a 118-111 home win on Monday. Trae Young led the team with 26 points and six assists, Clint Capela and Bogdan Bogdanovic each scored 16 points, Cameron Reddish added 15 points off the bench while John Collins finished with 12 points, nine rebounds and six assists. As a team, the Hawks shot 45 percent from the field and 13 of 34 from the 3-point line as they poured in 34 points in the first quarter to take an early 17-point lead, before pouring in another 34 points in the fourth quarter to hang on for the narrow win.
Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets have been in decent shape as they’ve won three of their last four games and they will be aiming for a third straight victory after routing the Pistons in a 117-91 home win on Sunday. Kevin Durant led the team with 23 points and five assists on 10 of 13 shooting in just 27 minutes of action, James Harden added a triple-double of 18 points with 10 rebounds and 12 assists, LaMarcus Aldridge scored 16 points off the bench while DeAndre Bembry chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the Nets shot a ridiculous 65 percent from the field and 13 of 25 from the 3-point line as they poured in 36 points in the second quarter to take a 15-point lead into halftime, before running away with it in the second half as the starters got rested early.
Looking at the betting trends, the Hawks are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record and 0-6 ATS in their last six games overall. The Nets are 14-5 ATS in their last 19 home games and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games playing on two days’ rest.
Head to head, the over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings overall and the Hawks are 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings overall.
John Collins is listed as questionable for this one, so the Hawks will be a little shorthanded, but they won’t get any sympathy from the Nets who are still without Kyrie Irving. The Hawks looked good in their much-needed win over the red-hot Wizards, but they’re going to be tested in this one as they look to be catching the Nets at the wrong time. I’m sure Young will lead the Hawks with a big game here, but I don’t think it’ll be enough to stop the Nets from claiming their third straight win.
