Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Houston Rockets NBA Prediction:
Both the Nets and the Rockets are looking to extend
With that in mind, it really comes down to one question.
Which Team Do You Trust Most?
Actually, in this matchup, the better question might be: Which team do you trust the least?
At this point, the Nets are a bit of a crapshoot, but they sit in the No. 6 seed out East, they’re not tanking and they’ve largely been better than expected after trading both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.
On the other hand, the Rockets are shooting for ping-pong balls and lottery positioning with the West’s worst record and the NBA’s second-worst record so far.
Trusting the Rockets at any point the rest of the way will be tough either straight up or against the spread.
All that said, give this one to the road Nets comfortably.
