The Brooklyn Nets are still looking for their first victory after a brutal 0-3 start to the year. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 88.7 points on 43.4 percent shooting and allowing 106 points on 47.5 percent shooting. Brook Lopez is averaging 18.3 points and 6.7 rebounds while Jarrett Jack is averaging 13.5 points and eight assists. Thaddeus Young is grabbing seven rebounds and Shane Larkin is dishing 4.7 assists. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging just 49.3 points from their starters and are shooting 21.1 percent from downtown. The Nets have lost 16 of their last 18 regular season games when scoring less than 100 points. The only hope for the Nets right now is that their first three games were against quality playoff teams, so maybe things lighten up from here.
The Bucks are 11-5-1 ATS in their last 17 Monday games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 vs. Eastern Conference. The Nets are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Monday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Bucks are 9-1-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Brooklyn and 17-4-1 ATS in the last 22 meetings overall.
Not exactly the best game to cap considering both clubs are down in the dumps right now. However, the Nets are at home and are playing a Bucks team that played Sunday. I'll take Brooklyn if forced to pick.
