The Los Angeles Lakers travel to the Barclays Center to battle the Brooklyn Nets tonight.
The Nets have yet to win a game this season and they didn't look likely in their last outing, a 101-87 loss at Atlanta. Brook Lopez led all scorers with 27 points on 11 of 16 shooting, but other than 14 points from Thaddeus Young and 12 points from Bojan Bogdanovic, no other Nets player even finished in double figures in scoring. Jarrett Jack shot just three of 10 for his six points and Joe Johnson shot just one of 10 for his five points.

Meanwhile, the Lakers are also without a win this season, falling to the Nuggets by 120-109 on Tuesday for their fourth straight loss to start the season. Jordan Clarkson led the team with a game-high 30 points on 12 of 19 shooting while Louis Williams added 24 points off the bench, but the Lakers frontcourt simply got dominated by the Nuggets' duo of Kenneth Faried and JJ Hickson who combined for 45 points on 18 of 22 shooting. Kobe Bryant scored just 11 points for the game while D'Angelo Russell continues to sit out late-game situations as the Lakers ran with the hot hand which was Williams on Tuesday.
In ATS trends, the Lakers are 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 against the Eastern Conference and 3-12-1 ATS in the last 16 games overall, while the Nets are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five against the Western Conference and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games overall.
Head to head, the Lakers are 2-6-1 ATS in the last nine meetings overall but a healthy 8-1-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Brooklyn.
You really couldn't back either team with much confidence in this game, as both squads are yet to earn a win this season but that's about to change for one team tonight. This looks like a good spot for the Nets to grab a win in front of their home crowd, but I'm actually leaning towards the Lakers in this one as the Lakers have a strong record in Brooklyn.
