Prediction

The Nets have been on fire lately as they're on a 7 game winning streak averaging 120.5 points per game on that strecht and have one of the best records at home so far with only 5 losses in Brooklyn. The Bucks have won 3 of their last 5 games but haven't been very good on the road so far this season. The Nets are looking unstoppable right now and have won 9 of their last 10 games at home and with the Bucks struggling on the road I gotta go with the Nets.
