The Brooklyn Nets travel to the State Farm Arena to take on the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night. Let’s preview this game and give out a Brooklyn Nets vs Atlanta Hawks prediction.

Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets have split their last six games and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after getting routed by the 76ers in a 121-99 loss on Sunday. Lonnie Walker led the team in scoring with 26 points on nine of 17 shooting off the bench, Mikal Bridges added 18 points on eight of 12 shooting while Spencer Dinwiddie chipped in with 12 points and five assists. As a team, the Nets shot 46 percent from the field and 11 of 28 from the 3-point line as they struggled to keep up from the start, allowing 38 points in the second quarter before things got even uglier in the second half where they trailed by as many as 27 points at one stage.

Brooklyn Nets Player Facts

  • Dorian Finney-Smith ranks T21st amongst qualified players for three-pointers made Per Game (2.8) this season.
  • Spencer Dinwiddie ranks 11th in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for assists per game (5.3) this season.

Atlanta Hawks

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have been in a slump as they've lost four of their past five games and they will be hoping to snap a three-game skid after getting beaten by the Pacers in a 157-152 loss last night. Trae Young led the team with 38 points and eight assists on 13 of 17 shooting, Dejounte Murray added 28 points while Bogdan Bogdanovic provided the spark off the bench with 26 points. As a team, the Hawks shot a sizzling 60 percent from the field and 15 of 31 from the 3-point line as they stormed out of the gates with 86 points in the first half, but even though they had the lead with just 1:21 left on the clock, it was the Pacers who closed the game on an 8-2 run to steal the game in the end.

  • The Nets rank 30th in the league for steals per game this season (5.5).
  • The Nets rank 30th in the league for opponent turnovers per game this season (11.1).

Peter's Pick

The Nets are still shorthanded with Cam Thomas and Ben Simmons still out, while the Hawks are still missing AJ Griffin due to illness. The Nets come into this meeting as the team in better recent form, but their lack of depth was exposed on Sunday and I think we could see it again here. The Hawks aren't at their best and they are playing the second game of a back to back set, but they're bound to turn things around sooner rather than later with a healthy squad, so I'll back them at home at the short line.

Peter’s Pick Atlanta -3.5
