Cleveland Cavaliers vs Brooklyn Nets 5/16/2021 Betting Odds
Cleveland Cavaliers Betting
The Cleveland Cavaliers season is pretty much over and they are just looking to polish their young players to fit better inside an NBA game. This team is now tied with the Minnesota Timberwolves for the draft lottery odds at 5th overall and a loss will help them get better chances in landing a higher pick. It really doesn’t matter if Kevin Love, Collin Sexton and Jarrett Allen are playing in this game but expect Anderson Varejao to have his swan song wearing a Cavaliers jersey. Other than that, the Cavaliers have draft picks to think about and moving pieces in free agency.
Players to watch: C. Sexton PG 59 GP 59 GS 35.5 MIN 24.5 PTS 1 OR 2.2 DR 3.1 REB 4.4 AST 1 STL 0.2 BLK 2.8 TO 2.6 PF 1.5 AST/TO 18.1 PER
D. Garland PG 54 GP 50 GS 33.1 MIN 17.4 PTS 0.4 OR 2 DR 2.4 REB 6.1 AST 1.2 STL 0.1 BLK 3 TO 2 PF 2 AST/TO 14.35 PER
J. Allen C * 50 GP 39 GS 30.3 MIN 13.3 PTS 3.1 OR 6.8 DR 9.9 REB 1.7 AST 0.5 STL 1.4 BLK 1.6 TO 1.5 PF 1.1 AST/TO 20.14 PER.
Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Brooklyn Nets managed to field their “Big Three” of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden during their most recent match against the Chicago Bulls. So far, so good but the Bulls were just letting the Nets coast through. There is not much at stake for the Nets here but they should try to put their big three at least in the first half and do some final tweaking before the season ends. They should be sealing the second-best record in the NBA Eastern Conference and will look to rest up their players during the off days. It has been a turbulent season for the Nets but they made it this far with a healthy roster.
Players to Watch: K. Durant PF 33 GP 30 GS 33.3 MIN 27.5 PTS 0.4 OR 6.6 DR 7 REB 5.3 AST 0.8 STL 1.4 BLK 3.4 TO 2 PF 1.6 AST/TO 26.81 PER
K. Irving PG 52 GP 52 GS 35.2 MIN 27.2 PTS 1 OR 3.8 DR 4.8 REB 6.2 AST 1.4 STL 0.6 BLK 2.5 TO 2.6 PF 2.5 AST/TO 24.48 PER
J. Harden SG 35 GP 34 GS 37 MIN 25.1 PTS 0.9 OR 7.8 DR 8.6 REB 11 AST 1.3 STL 0.7 BLK 4.1 TO 2.4 PF 2.7 AST/TO 25.18 PER.
