I’m not sure what occurred but suddenly the revamped Nets who began their tenure with some impressive wins and almost stole a few suddenly are having issues both scoring and defending.
The latter makes no sense given the team’s personnel.
Specifically, the Nets were .500 through the initial four games after the trade but in retrospect are reeling having lost four in a row and 8 of 10.
Brooklyn allows 113.4 points ranking 15th and possesses the fourth-best opponent field goal percentage of 46.3% but ranks 29th on perimeter defense as foes shoot 37.6% from deep.
Brooklyn scores 113.7 points per game ranking 18th. They own the second-best field goal percentage, shooting 49.8%, and also rank second on the perimeter shooting 38.7% from deep.
To summarize the injury report…
- Ben Simmons PG (OUT indefinitely— Knee)
- Yuta Watanabe SG (OUT— back)
- Edmond Sumner PG (OUT— personal)
After topping the leaderboard both in the East and overall the Bucks 16 game win streak and relegated the Celtics to second in the East a half game back of Milwaukee.
On the positive side, Boston claims the fourth-best point production averaging 117.7 points per game. In terms of efficiency, they shoot 47.5% from the field and 37.9% from the perimeter ranking 14th and sixth respectively.
Presently, opponents average 112.0 points per game which rank ninth. Celtics opponents are limited to 46.7% from the field and 35.5% from the perimeter which ranks ninth and 11th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Jaylen Brown SF (available — facial)
- Danilo Gallinari, SF (OUT indefinitely — ACL)

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
Through their last four games opponents are averaging 130 points on the Nets (YIKES) Moreover, aside from the track meet (127-129) versus the Hawks they’ve also lost by double-digits with the 44 point margin versus the Bulls the most egregious.
Certainly, that explains the double-digit spread and for as much as I abhor large spreads and believed these Nets could be special defensively they sure aren’t playing like a team who wants to be in the playoffs.
