The Brooklyn Nets have split their last 10 games and play their first home game in nearly a month. On the season, the Nets are averaging 96.3 point son 44.8 percent shooting and are allowing 99.3 points on 45 percent shooting. Joe Johnson is averaging 15.7 points and 4.9 rebounds while Brook Lopez is averaging 15.3 points and 6.5 rebounds. Thaddeus Young is grabbing 4.8 rebounds and Deron Williams is dishing 6.2 assists. The Brooklyn Nets are just 10-15 SU on their home court but have to feel good about being just outside a playoff spot in the East. The Nets are shooting 46.4 percent from the field and 34 percent from deep in their last five games. Markel Brown is questionable for this game with an ankle injury.
The Warriors are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest and 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 vs. Eastern Conference. The Nets are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Warriors are 3-9 ATS in the last 12 meetings in Brooklyn and the home team is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
The Nets have to be thrilled to be back home, as they haven't seen their home fans since Febuary 6th. Add that to the fact the Warriors are coming off a tough game Sunday against the Celtics, I like the value we're getting here with the points.
