Brooklyn Nets Betting

The Brooklyn Nets suffered a setback during losing their last game and that made them slip to the third-best record in the NBA Eastern Conference behind the Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers. Coming to this matchup, the Nets are opting to sit out their big three players of James Harden, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. It will be interesting how Blake Griffin will be playing this game against his former team since getting traded just a few weeks ago. Alize Johnson had a breakout game against the Jazz and took advantage of the big threeโ€™s absence by tallying 23 points and 15 rebounds.

Players to watch: K. Durant PF 19 GP 18 GS 35.7 MIN 29 PTS 0.4 OR 6.9 DR 7.3 REB 5.3 AST 0.7 STL 1.4 BLK 3.5 TO 2.3 PF 1.5 AST/TO 25.45 PER

Detroit Pistons Betting

The Detroit Pistons are on back-to-back losses and they are still the worst team in the NBA Eastern Conference with their record at 12-31. This team is 2.5 games behind the new-look Orlando Magic in the standings. Heading to this match, the Detroit Pistons just made very minor adjustments before the trade deadline with Delon Wright getting traded for Cory Joseph. The veteran point guard is still doubtful to play in this game but Killian Hayes should be back very soon as well. Jerami Grant and Mason Plumlee have proven that they are just more than rotation players and can lead a team through Dwayne Caseyโ€™s system.

Players to Watch: J. Grant SF 40 GP 40 GS 35.6 MIN 23.4 PTS 0.8 OR 4.3 DR 5.1 REB 2.8 AST 0.8 STL 1.1 BLK 2.1 TO 2.6 PF 1.4 AST/TO 17.51 PER
