Brooklyn Nets vs Sacramento Kings 2/2/2022 Betting Odds
Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Brooklyn Nets are on a free fall and they are not the 6th best team in the NBA Eastern Conference. The drop is so tragic that this team was on top of the east just last month. Kevin Durant is still very far away from returning and Kyrie Irving is just available during road games. The good news is that James Harden is expected to play and flirt with a triple-double once again. It may not be enough as the Nets will need more from their role players to keep the Sacramento Kings at bay. Patty Mills needs a strong game to help support Irving and Harden cut the losing streak.
Players to watch: K. Durant PF 36 GP 36 GS 36.5 MIN 29.3 PTS 0.6 OR 6.9 DR 7.4 REB 5.8 AST 0.8 STL 0.9 BLK 3 TO 1.9 PF 1.9 AST/TO 26.18 PER
K. Irving PG 8 GP 8 GS 35.1 MIN 24.5 PTS 0.5 OR 4.6 DR 5.1 REB 5.4 AST 1.3 STL 0.3 BLK 2.5 TO 2.4 PF 2.2 AST/TO 21.12 PER

Sacramento Kings Betting
The Sacramento Kings are on another disappointing season and it is not a surprise anymore. Coach Luke Walton is on the hot seat as he has not been able to bring this team-up since taking the job. Adding to that is an injury from their top player in DeAaron Fox along with Marvin Bagley. The Kings need Tyrese Haliburton to step up and run the team’s offense while setting up Harrison Barnes and sharp-shooting Buddy Heild. Looking back at the games of the Kings, this team seems disinterested to make an effort in the win and that is why they own the longest active losing streak.
Players to Watch: D. Fox PG 43 GP 43 GS 34.1 MIN 21 PTS 0.5 OR 3.3 DR 3.8 REB 5.2 AST 1.2 STL 0.4 BLK 2.8 TO 2.8 PF 1.9 AST/TO 16.70 PER
