The Brooklyn Nets are arguably the worst team in the NBA this season. The Nets are currently sitting at 21 games under .500 ball this season. Brooklyn is expected to tank the rest of the season. The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to continue playing good with a new lineup. The Cavs could drop a few during the learning curve.
The last time the Nets and Cavaliers took the court against each other, was November 22nd. The Cavaliers won, 119-109. Look for Cleveland to try and blowout Brooklyn at the Q.
The Brooklyn Nets are one of the worst teams in basketball. The Nets have not shot at a playoff run, and will be missing the postseason. All the Nets are playing for now is pride. Brooklyn lacks the star power, and competitive roster to compete against good teams in the NBA. Brooklyn is 1-4 over their last five games.
The Nets might not have star power, but could have a star in the making in Spencer Dinwiddie. Dinwiddie is averaging 13.4 points and 6.8 assists per game this season. He also was the winner of the NBA skills competition over the All Star break. Expect him to show up, if nobody else does for Brooklyn.
Aside from Dinwiddie’s play, the Nets recently beat the Chicago Bulls, 104-87. Alan Crabbe led the team in scoring with 21 points. Hopefully for the etNs sake, the team can start a win streak. Before the win against the Bulls, the team was 1-4 and riding a four game losing streak.
On the defensive side of the court, the Nets are allowing 109.3 points per game this season. Good enough to rank Brooklyn 24th in points scored this season. The Nets allowed 87 points against the Bulls. If Brooklyn can repeat the solid performance it had against Chicago, they will give Cleveland some competition on the road.
If Dinwiddie can play well, look for the rest of the Nets roster to follow his lead. He is going to need all the help he can get against the Eastern Conference Champs.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are 3-2 over the last five games, and recently took a tough road loss at San Antonio. 110-94. LeBron James had 33 points, but the rest of the Cavaliers roster did not show up. Jordan Clarkson was the teams second leader in scoring with 17 points in the loss.
If the Cavaliers are going to get efforts like the won against San Antonio, expect Cleveland to get beaten in the first round of the playoffs this season. The team is experienced enough to know how hard it can be to get use to new personnel on the roster. Expect a better effort from the Cavaliers in this one.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Cavaliers are allowing 109.6 points per game this year. Good enough to rank the Cavaliers 26th in points allowed this season. If Cleveland can’t clean it up on defense, the team is going to continue to struggle. Last year the Cleveland defense was a lot better at this time of year.
