The Atlanta Hawks play host to the Brooklyn Nets at the State Farm Arena on Saturday night.
The Brooklyn Nets have been in decent shape as they’ve won eight of their last 12 games, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after getting stopped by the Bucks in a 120-119 overtime loss on Thursday. Kevin Durant led the team with 26 points, seven rebounds and 11 assists, Kyrie Irving added 25 points with five assists while Bruce Brown chipped in with 23 points and three blocks. As a team, the Nets shot 46 percent from the field and an efficient 18 of 37 from the 3-point line as they squandered a nine-point lead in the final 3:01 of the fourth quarter, before coming up painfully short in overtime as Durant’s final shot to win the game just rimmed out at the buzzer.
Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have been in great form as they’ve won nine of their last 12 games and they will be gunning for a fifth straight victory after routing the Cavaliers in a 131-107 home win on Thursday. Trae Young led the team with 30 points and nine assists on nine of 17 shooting, Kevin Huerter added 23 points while Onyeka Okongwu chipped in with 17 points and 12 rebounds off the bench. As a team, the Hawks shot 49 percent from the field and 17 of 39 from the 3-point line as they set tone with 36 points in the first quarter to take a 13-point lead into halftime which ballooned to 26 points late in the third quarter where the Hawks ran riot.
Looking at the betting trends, the Nets are 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 road games, 5-1 ATS in their last six games as a road favorite and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall. The Hawks are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record and 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall.
Head to head, the Nets are 13-6 ATS in the last 19 meetings overall.
The Hawks are still missing John Collins and Lou Williams, while the Nets are still waiting for the debut of Ben Simmons. The Nets have been trying to build some momentum, but they will be kicking themselves after coming up painfully short to the Bucks in overtime on Thursday, while the Hawks have been in great form and they will be full of confidence following their big win over the Cavaliers. You can make an argument for either side here, but the Nets are 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 road games and 13-6 ATS in the last 19 meetings overall, so I’ll lean towards the Nets in a close one here.
