The Nets have simply given up on the season and can't even win a game at home. It's gotten to the point where it's tough to even take double-digit points with this Brooklyn team. OKC has been one of the hotter teams in the league right now and won't let up against this brutal New York team.
I have no choice but to eat the chalk.
