The Brooklyn Nets are shooting for consecutive wins when the New York Knicks take the floor on Sunday. Brooklyn was steady at both ends of the floor in a 107-88 victory versus the visiting Miami Heat last time out. The Nets opened the game with a 33 point first quarter to take a ten point lead and were never challenged. The Nets were just too tough at the defensive end with the Heat held to 38% shooting which made their own 45% accuracy a winning combination and helped overcome 26 giveaways. Jeremy Lin led Brooklyn with 16 points on 5-7 shooting with Sean Kilpatrick netting 14 points and grabbing seven rebounds on 4-8. The duo of Joe Harris and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson chipped in with ten points each with Hollis-Jefferson grabbing nine boards.
Under is 6-0 in Knicks last 6 games following a ATS win and under is 4-0 in Knicks last 4 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game and under is 3-0-1 in Knicks last 4 road games. Under is 3-0-1 in Nets last 4 when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game and under is 3-0-1 in Nets last 4 overall and under is 9-1-1 in Nets last 11 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game. Over is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in Brooklyn.
The Nets already beat the Knicks this preseason and are 2-0 overall, while the Knicks have yet to win a game and have given up a combined 219 points in two games. The Nets were really consistent in their last preseason game against a really solid Heat team, shutting them down defensively and winning by 19 points despite 25 turnovers. I'll lay the bucket with the Nets on their home court.
