Brooklyn Nets at Atlanta Hawks - 12/28/22 NBA Picks and Prediction

Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Brooklyn Nets and the Atlanta Hawks duke it out at the State Farm Arena on Wednesday night.

The Brooklyn Nets have been in red-hot form as they’ve won 13 of their last 14 games overall and they will be gunning for a 10th straight victory after beating the Cavaliers in a 125-117 road win on Monday. Kevin Durant led the team with 32 points, nine rebounds and five assists, Kyrie Irving drained seven 3-pointers to finish with 32 points of his own, TJ Warren added 23 points off the bench while Ben Simmons tallied four points with nine rebounds and eight assists. As a team, the Nets shot a sizzling 57 percent from the field and 18 of 30 from the 3-point line as they got off to a hot start from behind the arc and poured in 65 points in the first half to build a 19-point lead, before they held off the Cavaliers in the fourth quarter to keep their win streak alive.

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have been in decent shape as they’ve won three of their past five games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after getting routed by the Pacers in a 129-114 road loss last night. John Collins led the team with 26 points and 10 rebounds, Trae Young added 22 points with 10 assists while Bogdan Bogdanovic chipped in with 18 points. As a team, the Hawks shot 44 percent from the field and 12 of 30 from the 3-point line as they struggled to contain the Pacers’ Buddy Hield from the start and trailed by 10 points going into halftime and things only got worse in the fourth quarter where the Pacers’ bench ran riot to make it a blowout.

Looking at the betting trends, the Nets are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall. The Hawks are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games, 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games playing on zero days rest and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall.

Head to head, the Nets are 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings overall.

The Nets are again missing Joe Harris, but they should have Seth Curry back in the lineup, while the Hawks have ruled out Clint Capela and they are keeping eyes on Trae Young and De’Andre Hunter who are both day to day. The Nets are currently the hottest team in the league and they will be full of confidence following their win over the red-hot Cavaliers on Monday. The Hawks are still playing a little below their best and they didn’t look good in last night’s big loss to the Pacers. The Nets are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall and I think that trend continues here as the duo of Durant and Irving should be too much for the Hawks in this spot.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
