The Brooklyn Nets have not won a single game since March 26. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 98.5 points on 45.6 percent shooting and allowing 105.3 points on 47.6 percent shooting. Brook Lopez is averaging 20.6 points and 7.8 rebounds while Thaddeus Young is averaging 15.1 points and 1.9 assists. Sean Kilpatrick is grabbing 1.9 rebounds and Bojan Bogdanovic is dishing 1.3 assists. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 35 percent from beyond the arc and 76.3 percent from the free throw line. The Nets are allowing 37 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.4 rebounds per game. The Brooklyn Nets have lost five of their last eight home games.
The Raptors are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest and 11-4 ATS in their last 15 Wednesday games. The Nets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Raptors are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
The Nets have given up on the season long ago, and I'm not sure the last game of the season will motivate this team to play any better. Even with the Raptors resting players, they should still win this game.
