Brooklyn Nets Betting

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.

Players to watch: S. Dinwiddie PG 57 GP 42 GS 31.4 MIN 20.8 PTS 0.5 OR 3 DR 3.5 REB 6.6 AST 0.6 STL 0.3 BLK 2.7 TO 2.9 PF 2.4 AST/TO 17.75 PER

Atlanta Hawks Betting

The Atlanta Hawks need more players involved to aid Trae Young. John Collins has been trying but both just need more scoring from the bench. With Atlanta practically out of the running, the Hawks are going through the motions of finishing their campaign. They took in key players for next season and are quietly breaking them in. Aside from offense, their defense needs work as well. Atlanta has a lot of things to address, hopefully enough for a better showing next season.

Players to Watch: T. Young PG 54 GP 54 GS 35.5 MIN 30.1 PTS 0.5 OR 3.9 DR 4.4 REB 9.2 AST 1.1 STL 0.1 BLK 4.8 TO 1.7 PF 1.9 AST/TO 24.56 PER
