The Brooklyn Nets travel to Charlotte to take on the Hornets on Tuesday. This is the second time these teams face off. The Hornets beat the Nets on the road 115-95.


The Nets have lost their last 4 games and are 19-15 on the road this season. Brooklyn has a 32-33 overall record and are 4th in the Atlantic. They're coming from a loss against the Celtics where Durant played in his second game since mid-January and scored 37 for the Nets, becoming the 23rd player in NBA history to reach 25,000 points. 

Durant is averaging 29.3 points and 5.8 assists, while Kyrie Irving is averaging 25.1 points and 4.8 rebounds. Seth Curry is the third double-digit scorer and LaMarcus Aldridge is grabbing 5.7 rebounds. 

The Nets are 3-7 in their last 10 games, averaging 109.8 points, 41.8 rebounds, 22.2 assists, 6.2 steals and 4.1 blocks per game while shooting 45.5% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 115.6 points per game.

INJURIES: Ben Simmons, Joe Harris and Aldridge are out.


The Hornets have won their last 2 games and are 16-15 at home. They have a 32-33 overall record ranking second in the Southeast. They just beat the Spurs at home where Terry Rozier scored 31 points, LaMelo Ball added 24 points for Charlotte, P.J. Washington and Montrezl Harrell each had 15 and Mason Plumlee had 13 rebounds and the Hornets beat San Antonio 123-117 on Saturday night.

Miles Bridges is scoring 19.7 points per game and averaging 7.3 rebounds for the Hornets. Lamelo Ball is averaging 19.6 ppg and 7.3 assists.

In their last 10 games the Hornets are 4-6, averaging 119.4 points, 50 rebounds, 29 assists, 8.4 steals and 4.6 blocks per game while shooting 46% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 116.7 points.


Brooklyn are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games.

The total has gone OVER in 10 of Brooklyn's last 13 games.

Charlotte are 4-11 SU in their last 15 games.

Charlotte are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games at home.


Even with Durant having scored 37 pts, the Nets couldn't beat the Celtics but I like them to win this game. Charlotte is 2-4 in their last 6 games at home and have lost 13 of their last 20 games against the Nets. The Hornets have the #1 offense in the league but they play zero defense. Take the Nets.
