The Brooklyn Nets will continue their road trip as they take on the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, December 8th. The tip-off is set for 8:00 ET from the Toyota Center.
This is the second night of a back-to-back for the Nets. I wonder if they will come out lagging or if they will have plenty of energy.
Brooklyn opened up as a 6.5 point favorite and that number is now down to 6. The total has stayed right around 225, but there are some that are showing 226.5.
Overall, the Nets have had a good season so far. When all is said and done, they will certainly be in the mix. With that said, I am not confident they can make it/win a championship without Kyrie Irving.
This team has won three of their last four games. If they are on their game, they should be able to take care of the Rockets, but they cannot look past them.
This team was a lot of people’s favorite to win it all this year and for good reason. Based on the talent they have, you can see why that is the case. To me, it is a championship or bust for this club.
One concerning thing about this team is they have struggled against the really good teams. Some teams that come to mind are the Bulls and the Suns. You can beat up on crap teams all you want, but at some point, you have to beat the best ones out there.
Brooklyn beat the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday by a score of 102-99. For a while, it looked like Dallas was going to win the game, but the Nets battled back and picked up the victory.
In the win over the Mavs, Kevin Durant was the leading scorer with 24 points. Also, James Harden added in 23 points, 9 boards, and 12 assists. I have been very impressed with the type of facilitator Harden has been since he has been a member of the Nets.
Things have not exactly gone well for this Rockets team so far. I do feel they are a bit better than their record might indicate, but that is not saying all that much.
Houston has a record of 7-16, which puts them in 13th place in the Western Conference. The two teams that are behind them are the Thunder and the Pelicans.
This squad does have some talent on it, but they just have to develop still. I feel like they could be a decent team in a few years. They are just going to have some patience.
Houston beat the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday by a score of 118-108. There are not many teams that Houston is better than, but the Pelicans are one of them.
The offense was very efficient in their last game. Both Christian Wood and Eric had 23 points on the night. Garrison Matthews contributed 13 points to the game.

Brooklyn Nets vs. Houston Rockets NBA Analysis:
This is a game between one of the best teams in the league and one of the worst teams in the league.
With that said, the Rockets have been playing better as of late and it is possible they can present some issues to the Nets.
Brooklyn has done a good job of taking care of teams that they are better than this year and I look for that trend to continue in this one.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nets ATS
I look for the Nets to keep up their good play in this one. As the game gets going, I feel like they will be too much for the Rockets to handle.
I get that the Rockets have been good ATS lately, but I just do not trust them in this spot. For me, the 6 is not too high to lay. It may not be a total blowout, but I do think Brooklyn covers this spread.
