Brooklyn Nets Betting
It has been a rough year for the Brooklyn Nets after coming off a big splash in the off-season to land Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Both have been hobbled with injuries and reports are coming out that Irvin will need more time to heal. DeAndre Jordan has been underwhelming as well averaging 8.2 points and 9.8 rebounds in 21 minutes per night. Spencer Dinwiddie is making a strong case and for the past thas been averaging 30.7 points, 5.8 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game. Joe Harris has also been stepping up with 14.7 points per game last two weeks. Against the Rockets, they are facing a hungry James Harden who did not live up to expectations against the Warriors and he looks to get his groove back.
Players to watch: S. Dinwiddie PG 29 GP 18 GS 30.6 MIN 22.7 PTS 0.2 OR 2.6 DR 2.9 REB 6.2 AST 0.9 STL 0.4 BLK 2.7 TO 3.3 PF 2.3 AST/TO 20.4 PER
Houston Rockets Betting
The Warriors managed to put James Harden in a tough spot and not letting him get to his usual touches. Russell Westbrook took over and he had 30 points, 12 rebounds and five assists but he was 11-of-32 from the field. Harden made up with assists doing 11 that night. Danuel House Jr. maximized his minutes providing 18 points but he was 33% from the field as well. This was a game that the Rockets are very uncomfortable with and should be something they can solve. Against the Nets, the combination of Westbrook and Harden will be very tough match up but the Rockets need Ben McLemore, Clint Capela and House to do their jobs to make it easier for the two former MVPs.
Players to Watch: J. Harden SG 31 GP 31 GS 37.6 MIN 38.1 PTS 1 OR 4.8 DR 5.8 REB 7.5 AST 1.9 STL 0.7 BLK 4.7 TO 3.4 PF 1.6 AST/TO 31.66 PER
