The Atlanta Hawks and Brooklyn Nets play game four of their playoff series Monday night.
The Atlanta Hawks look to win here and go up 3-1 in the series, putting it pretty much to bed. Jeff Teague is averaging 15 points and five assists while Paul Millsap is averaging 14.3 points and 10.3 rebounds. DeMarre Carroll is grabbing 7.3 rebounds and Kyle Korver is dishing three assists. The Atlanta Hawks haven’t looked like their regular season team at all in this series. The Hawks are shooting just 30.8 percent from deep and 43.5 percent from two in this series. The Hawks have five double-digit scorers but have missed tons of open looks and could easily be trailing in this series. The Hawks have also lost four of their last seven games when scoring less than 100 points. Five of the Hawks last six losses have come on the road.

The Brooklyn Nets look to be a surprise team and tie this series up with a victory. Brook Lopez is averaging 19.7 points and 11.3 rebounds while Joe Johnson is averaging 17.3 points and 4.7 assists. Jarrett Jack is dishing 4.3 assists and Thaddeus Young is grabbing 8.7 rebounds. The Brooklyn Nets finally figured out how to close a game and are back in this series despite shooting just 29.4 percent from deep. The Nets received a big boost from Bojan Bogdanovic, who dropped 19 points in the game three victory. With the way both teams have played, the Nets have to be feeling quite confident right now. The Nets have won eight of their last 10 home games. Deron Williams is questionable with a leg injury.
The Hawks are 20-6 ATS in their last 26 Monday games and 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Nets are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Hawks are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Brooklyn.
The Hawks just don't look like a good basketball team right now, and maybe I'm crazy, but I think the Nets can win this series if this continues. Take the Nets and the points.
