The Brooklyn Nets go for a win to strengthen its old of the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference standings. A loss could have dire consequences, especially with the Orlando Magic giving chase. Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert will lead the offensive charge anew for coach Kenny Atkinson. But the big thing to watch for Brooklyn is their defense. They have been known to make life miserable on that end, meaning it will be a long night for Trae Young and John Collins.
