The Nets have lost 3 of their last 5 games, and they're 23-17 on the road with a 41-38 record overall, currently sitting fourth in the Atlantic Division.
Kevin Durant has been the catalyst for this hopeful Nets team. The former Texas Longhorn is averaging 30.2 points per game, while grabbing 7.3 rebounds per game and disging out a career high 6.1 assists per game. Durant could potentially churn out another 50/40/90 shooting split season with a big performance at the Garden here.
Kyrie Irving shook out of his cold slupt with a 42-point eruption against Atlanta last night. The 6'2 guard hasn't had that signature performance at MSG yet, and he could deliver a show himself here.
NEW YORK KNICKS
The Knicks have won five of their last seven, while going 16-23 on the road with a 35-44 record overall, and currently sitting in the basement of the Atlantic Division.
R.J. Barrett has really taken a leap forward here in year-three. The former Duke swingman is averaging a career-high 20.2 points per game, and he's scored 25 points or more in three of his last four games.
With Julius Randle out for the season, Mitchell Robinson could be in for another big game down on the block. Robinson has grabbed nine or more rebounds in four of his past five games, while blocking three or more shots in each of those contests.
Brooklyn is 4-5 ATS in their last 9 games.
BKN is 3-2 ATS in their last 5 games on the road.
New York is 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games.
NYK are 3-4 ATS in their last 7 games at home.
The stakes are high for this Battle of the Burroughs, as the Brooklyn Nets are looking to clean up a messy season and lock up the seven-seed. The Knicks would love to play spoiler here, but the star power for the Nets should be able to prevail here. Expect a big game from Durant or Kyrie here, and take Brooklyn's spread.
