Brooklyn Nets vs Indiana Pacers 1/5/2022 Betting Odds
Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Brooklyn Nets are currently the second-best team in the NBA Eastern Conference and their gap between the Chicago Bulls for the top record widens with their three-game losing streak. Among the teams that defeated them were the Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Clippers and the most recent were the Memphis Grizzlies, 104-118. It is still a puzzle since both Kevin Durant and James Harden have been playing but help may come soon with Kyrie Irving set to return but not in this game. Durant led the team with 26 points while Harden had 19 against the Grizzlies. They got help from Claxton with 11 points and two other players chipping in 10 markers.
