The Brooklyn Nets and San Antonio Spurs square off late Friday night at the AT&T Center.
The Brooklyn Nets look for their first win after losing to the Bulls in their season opener. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 100 points on 41.9 percent shooting and allowing 115 points on 53.8 percent shooting. Brook Lopez is averaging 26 points and seven rebounds while Andrea Bargnani is averaging 17 points and seven rebounds. Joe Johnson is grabbing 10 rebounds and Shane Larkin is dishing eight assists. The Brooklyn Nets played zero defense in their opening game loss and allowed 14 threes to a very inconsistent offensive Bulls team. If opening night was any indication of things to come, it’s going to be a long season for the Nets. Jarrett Jack is questionable with a hamstring injury.

Kawhi Leonard is averaging 32 points and eight rebounds while Manu Ginobili is averaging 11 points and seven assists. Tim Duncan is grabbing six rebounds and Boris Diaw is dishing six assists. The San Antonio Spurs lost to OKC despite controlling majority of the game. LaMarcus Aldridge made four of 12 shots in his first game in a San Antonio uniform. The Spurs have won nine straight regular season home games.
The Nets are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 vs. Western Conference. The Spurs are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 home games. The Nets are 7-19-1 ATS in the last 27 meetings and the home team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Spurs played a championship contender down to the wire while the Nets allowed the Bulls to make damn near every shot for four quarters. Add in the fact the Spurs are flat out terrific at home, and I smell a blowout here.
