Brooklyn Nets vs Cleveland Cavaliers Prediction and Odds :Recent Form
The Brooklyn Nets are the table toppers in the Eastern Conference. Coming off a close win against the Orlando Magic, the Brooklyn Nets have extended their winning streak to two games.
They have won 12 of their 17 games this season. Their game versus the Magic was razor-thin. One of the main reasons for this was that Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant was resting due to right shoulder soreness. What was supposed to be an easy win turned into a close struggle until the end, when the Nets won thanks to a missed free throw by Cole Anthony.
After 17 games, the Brooklyn Nets appear to be a championship contender. Without Durant, the Nets had just enough to get their latest win. They trailed by 19 twice in the first half before dominating the third quarter and surviving some shaky moments in the fourth.
On Friday, James Harden had 36 points, 10 rebounds, and eight assists against the Magic, indicating a return to form. No new update regarding the Kyrie Irving situation has emerged, his decision of not taking the vaccine hasn’t affected the Nets till now but his absence will be felt during the deep run in the playoffs.
Irving will probably be traded during the transfer window as he is now just a waste of money and salary cap for the Brooklyn Nets. Nets will face the Cleveland Cavaliers who they defeated earlier this week 109-99.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have been an exciting team to watch this season. Featuring a talented cast of young players, the Cavaliers achieved a 9-8 on the season. The Cavaliers put up a great performance for most of the game in their defeat to the Golden State Warriors.
Despite being severely shorthanded in their big-man rotation, the Cavaliers entered the fourth quarter with a 13-point advantage. The Cavaliers’ resolve began to waver as the Warriors’ offence began to click.
After scoring only eight points in the fourth quarter, the Cavaliers were eliminated from the game. However, the Cavaliers have reason to be optimistic as they begin their homestand. The Cleveland Cavaliers will hope to be a formidable team again with the return of Jarrett Allen and Lauri Markkanen to the roster.
More distressing for the Cavaliers is finding out Colin Sexton, who scored 42 points last season against Brooklyn in Cleveland, will be out for the season after undergoing meniscus surgery.
The Cavaliers are on their first three-game losing streak of the season and have lost four of six, a stretch where they have been held under 100 points in each game. Allen has missed three straight games with an illness that is not COVID-19 related while Markkanen has missed nine games in the NBA’s health and safety protocols.
