The Brooklyn Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Quicken Loans Arena.
The Brooklyn Nets could use a win here after losing five of their last six games. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 111.7 points on 45.1 percent shooting and allowing 112.3 points on 46.5 percent shooting. D'Angelo Russell is averaging 20 points and 6.6 assists while Caris LeVert is averaging 17.1 points and 3.9 rebounds. Joe Harris is the third double-digit scorer and Jarrett Allen is grabbing 8.6 rebounds. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 35.7 percent from beyond the arc and 75.2 percent from the free throw line. The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 34.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.8 rebounds per game. The Brooklyn Nets have lost four straight road games.
The Cleveland Cavaliers could also use a win after losing 10 of their last 13 games. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 102.3 points on 44 percent shooting and allowing 112.9 points on 49.2 percent shooting. Jordan Clarkson is averaging 16.8 points and 2.4 assists while Collin Sexton is averaging 14.9 points and 2.8 assists. Cedi Osman is the third double-digit scorer and Tristan Thompson is grabbing 11.1 rebounds. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 78.8 percent from the free throw line. The Cleveland Cavaliers are allowing 37 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.5 rebounds per game. The Cleveland Cavaliers have lost six of their last eight home games.
The Nets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference and 8-1 ATS in their last 9 Wednesday games. The Cavaliers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Wednesday games. The Nets are 23-9 ATS in the last 32 meetings in Cleveland and 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings. The over is 11-5-1 in Cavaliers last 17 home games. The over is 5-2 in Nets last 7 overall.
The Brooklyn Nets have gone from being a surprise team in the league to going ice cold in a matter of week. The good news is that the Nets have been quite profitable on the road and are 6-3 ATS this season when favored by less than six points. The Cleveland Cavaliers aren't putting NBA rosters on the court, and they're losing by an average of 10.6 points on the season, nine points in their last five games and nine points at home. It's really tough to get behind the Cavs with their current situation. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Nets, a game they should win comfortably if they're serious about being a playoff team.
