Kyle Korver is dishing 2.8 assists and Paul Millsap is grabbing 9.8 rebounds. The Atlanta Hawks found their shot in their game five victory by shooting 48.2 percent from the field and making 13 threes. However, now the Hawks have to find that same success on the road.

The Brooklyn Nets look to extend this series to a game seven with a victory. Brook Lopez is averaging 20 points and 9.4 rebounds while Joe Johnson is averaging 17.4 points and 4.6 assists. Jarrett Jack is dishing 4.4 assists and Alan Anderson is grabbing 3.6 rebounds. The Brooklyn Nets shot 47.4 percent in their game five loss, which still means they’re getting whatever shots they want. However, Deron Williams has to be more consistent, as he’s scored five or less points in three of the five games this series. The Nets have won 12 of their last 13 games when topping 100 points. The Nets have won five of their last seven home games.
The Hawks are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Conference Quarterfinals games and 27-13-1 ATS in their last 41 games playing on 1 days rest. The Nets are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 Conference Quarterfinals games and 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 games playing on 1 days rest. The Hawks are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Nets have played with the Hawks, which includes winning the first two games on their home court. I expect Brooklyn fans to show up and for the Nets to get another W here. The Hawks just don't look good and consistent.
