It is a battle between two teams on opposite spectrums as the Brooklyn Nets take on the Detroit Pistons on Friday. The Nets have won 16 of their last 19 games, moving them into second place in the Eastern Conference. Detroit is currently in last place in the Eastern Conference and holds the second worst best record in the NBA after losing to Indiana on Wednesday for their 31st loss on the year.
These teams just played in each other in Brooklyn on March 13th with the Nets grabbing a 100-95 victory. The Pistons showed fight late and were able to grab a 7 point advantage in the final quarter but it wasn’t enough for the comeback win. Jerami Grant scored a team high 22 points meanhile James Harden had one of his signature nights dropping a 24 point, 10 rebound, 10 assist triple-double.
We are in for a reunion as well as Blake Griffin, the recently traded Piston, is scheduled to play after missing the previous game. The former All-Star was a massive disappointment in Detroit and its still uncertain if he will ever be able to return to his past self.
With victories in 16 of their last 19 games, Brooklyn enters this contest as one of the hottest teams in the NBA. Their only losses during the streak came against Dallas on February 27, Orlando on March 19, and just last game to the Utah Jazz.
Brooklyn were severely shorthanded in their last game against the Utah Jazz and were pummeled 88-118. Along with their ‘big-three’, the likes of Blake Griffin and Landry Shamet also sat out the game, while starter Joe Harris player just five minutes on the night.
The Nets have struggled of late with the absence of key players. Kevin Durant hasn’t been featured in the last 17 outings and Kyrie Irving won’t be available until after the Pistons game due to the birth of his first child. James Harden was the latest to be added to the injury list as he missed out on the last game due to neck soreness and is doubtful for this matchup.
The addition of James Harden has been a huge one, as he has led the team in scoring in nine of the last 15 games. Harden has been the assist leader in each of the last nine contests he has played, allowing Kyrie Irving to move freely to get the best shot.
Irving is averaging 28.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 5.7 assists per game and should be refreshed after taking Tuesday’s game off. Harden is averaging 25.4 points per game since joining Brooklyn and is also averaging 8.8 rebounds and 11.3 assists per game. Kevin Durant remains out with his calf injury.
Brooklyn is the No. 1 scoring team in the NBA, averaging 120.2 ppg. They are allowing 115.2 points per contest, 26th overall.
The Detroit Pistons head into this matchup on the back of a 3-7 record in their last ten outings. However, two of those three wins have come in the last four games, and with the Nets being shorthanded, Dwane Casey’s men will fancy their chances of winning this time around.
The Detroit Pistons lost their last game against the Indiana Pacers 111-116. Jerami Grant top-scored with 29 points, while Saddiq Bey and Wayne Ellington added 16 points.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Brooklyn is 16-3 SU in last 19 games
- Brooklyn is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games
- Detroit is 3-7 ATS in last 10 games
- Detroit is 5-5 SU in last 10 games
Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction: over.
The Brooklyn Nets, despite lacking star-power for this matchup, will start as slight favorites. However, the Detroit Pistons are an unpredictable side and shouldn’t be counted out as they have been surprisingly good against the top teams this season.
I can’t have faith in the current depleted Nets roster against a nothing to lose team like the Pistons, especially with facing their former teammate Blake Griffin. Back the Pistons at home.
