The Brooklyn Nets continue to lose and lose, and things aren’t looking like they’ll change any time soon. The Nets will head to Charlotte to take on the Hornets.
With a win against Portland, the Hornets snapped a five-game losing streak and will look to grab a second win in a row against a very poor Nets squad.
With Jeremy Lin still sidelined with a hamstring injury, the Nets’ leadership solely falls on center Brook Lopez. Lopez has been solid this year, averaging 20.3 points per game on 46% shooting. He’s played some good basketball on a bad team.
The Nets are clearly in a rebuilding stage, so don’t expect a lot more wins this year, especially with how poor the defense is.
Brooklyn ranks dead last in the NBA in opponents’ points per game. The team gives up 115 points each night, and doesn’t score nearly enough to keep up with that.
Offensively, the Nets average about 105.3 points per game, putting them right in the middle of the NBA in that category. That’s not bad considering how little star power the team has, but it certainly doesn’t make up for how poor the defense is.
The Hornets kicked off 2017 with a rocky start, losing five straight games. Charlotte got a nice win to snap that losing streak against Portland and will look to keep things going in the right direction against the Nets.
Charlotte has had a solid year defensively. The team ranks 10th in the league in opponent’s points per game, giving up just over 103 per game.
On the other end of the floor, the Hornets average about 105 points per game. Without question, the bulk of that offense is generated by point guard Kemba Walker. He is having the best season of his career, averaging 23 points per game on 46% shooting. He also posts 4.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game, making him a solid all-around player for Charlotte.
Guard-forward Nicolas Batum has played well, also. He’s averaging 15 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 5.9 assists for the Hornets. He’s been a vital part of the team on both sides of the floor and has been a great number two for Kemba.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Brooklyn is 0-5 ATS in the last five games
- The Total has gone UNDER in four of Charlotte’s last five games
Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
Charlotte should have a pretty easy time beating the Nets, despite some recent struggles to start 2017. The Hornets are a decent team and should run away with this one. Hornets get the W.
