Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Nets have emerged as one of the surprising teams in the NBA. They have a winning record of 11-10 win-loss despite the absence of three of their key players (Irving, Durant and Le Vert). Despite the obvious lack of offense, Spencer Dinwiddie has filled the needs of Brooklyn, which is stunning the league with a 10th-best 113 points per game. The 6-foot-5 Colorado product leads the Nets offense with 20.8 points per game and a team-high 5.8 assists. Aside from the 26-year-old Dinwiddie, Joe Harris, Taurean Prince, Jarrett Allen and Garrett Temple have taken turns in the Nets’ offense, scoring baskets in bunches for the Kenny Atkinson-mentored squad en route to a winning record.
Players to Watch: S. Dinwiddie PG (20.8 PPG, 2.9 RPG, 5.8 APG, 0.9 SPG 0.5 BPG); J. Harris SG (14.5 PPG, 3.9 RPG, 1.9 APG, 0.8 SPG, 0.4 BPG); T. Prince PF (13.5 PPG, 6 RPG, 2 APG, 0.9 SPG 0.4 BPG).
Charlotte Hornets Betting
Since Kemba Walker was jettisoned to the Boston Celtics, Charlotte Hornets have struggled to cluster in wins. The James Borrego-coached five are third in the Southeast Division but they are seven games behind league-leading Miami Heat and two behind second-running Orlando Magic. The Magic hold the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference and the Hornets are currently ninth. In their last game, the Hornets emerged victorious over the hapless Golden State Warriors, 106-91. Devonte Graham continued his stellar season as he torched the hoops with 33 points that was aided by 10 3-pointers. The 6-foot-1 playmaker also registered seven rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 36 minutes. Terry Rozier provided tremendous help to Graham, contributing 25 markers, seven boards and seven dimes.
Players to Watch: D. Graham PG (18.7 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 7.7 APG); T. Rozier PG (17.7 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 4.2 APG, 1.3 SPG); M. Bridges SF (12.6 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 1.9 APG).
