The Nets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Monday games. The Clippers are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 4-1 in Nets last 5 overall. The under is 5-1 in Clippers last 6 overall. The Nets are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles and 17-5 ATS in the last 22 meetings.
The Brooklyn Nets will still be without Aldridge and Durant for this game, but they have the rest advantage here. The Los Angeles Clippers are without their two best players in Kawhi and Paul George, and they're on the end of a back to back. These spots kill undermanned teams, as you're asking a lot of rotation players, and now they get no rest. With Harden and Mills leading the way, the Nets should be able to get the job done on the road.
