Brooklyn is heading in the wrong direction. The Nets are just 2-12 in their last 14 games.
Even the return of Kyrie and Caris Levert has failed to give this team any momentum. If anything, the entire roster is struggling because of it. Those who had significant roles in their absence are finding it tough to play with the Nets two primary ball handlers. Right now, Kenny Atkinson’s Nets are in shambles.
In addition, with DeAndre Jordan sidelined with a finger dislocation, the Nets have been rolling out lineups with just one healthy center. Wilson Chandler has been filling in. Although the NBA has been getting smaller in recent years, big men are circling their match-up with the Nets on their calendars and licking their lips. Teams are attacking Brooklyn’s weakness inside and destroying them. The biggest deficiency is on the glass, the team simply cannot rebound without a healthy Jordan.

Devin Booker, DeAndre
Ayton, and the impressive young Phoenix Suns then visit the Barclays Center.
The Suns play a fast and fluid brand of basketball that at times has made them
look like world beaters. However, the team is inconsistent. They have no answer
for Kyrie Irving defensively, so look for Uncle Drew to put up some numbers in
this game. Prop bets are the way to go for this one. Take the over on Kyrie’s
