It is a battle of two of the best teams in the NBA when the Brooklyn Nets take on the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. The Nets have won 16 of their last 18 games, moving them into second place in the Eastern Conference. Utah is the top team in the Western Conference and holds the best record in the NBA after defeating Chicago on Monday for their 27th victory in their last 34 contests.
Brooklyn was the winner the last time these two teams met, back on January 5 when they defeated Utah, 130-96. Utah found themselves in a 21 point hole after the first quarter and were never able to dig themselves back out of it. Donovan Mitchell scored a game high 31 points while Kyrie Irving was right behind with 29 of his own.
Kyrie Irving was the lone member of the Big 3 to play in that matchup as Kevin Durant sat out due to injury and Brooklyn was still in talks for their soon upcoming blockbuster trade for James Harden.
With victories in 16 of their last 18 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 and Orlando on March 19.
The addition of James Harden has been a huge one, as he has led the team in scoring in nine of the last 14 games. Harden has been the assist leader in each of the last nine contests, 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.
Utah took a 14-point lead into the half, and never looked back, defeating the Bulls, 120-95. Chicago shot just 23.1% from the three-point range (6-26) while Utah was lighting up, hitting 17 of 39 three-point attempts (43.6%).
The Jazz were led by Donovan Mitchell who dropped 30 points along with pulling down six rebounds and dishing out six assists. Rudy Gobert added a double-double with 21 points and 10 rebounds.
Mitchell leads Utah in scoring at 25.4 points per game. He is a 42.6% shooter, including 37.8% from the three-point range. Gobert is a double-double machine, averaging 14.5 points and 13.4 rebounds per game. Jordan Clarkson has done a great job coming off the bench, averaging 17.5 points and 3.9 rebounds per game.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Brooklyn is 16-2 SU in last 18 games
- Brooklyn is 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games
- Utah is 3-7 ATS in last 10 games
- Utah is 5-5 SU in last 10 games
Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction: over.
It is been hard to bet against the Jazz all year as they own the best record in the NBA and are one of the best teams ATS. Given those circumstances it is surprising they are only a 2.5 point favorite on their home court but that just goes to show the respect linemakers have for this Nets team.
Either way Utah enters this game coming off a days rest while Brooklyn is playing a back to back and their last game was no easy task. I’m taking the more rested Utah Jazz to cover the small spread and add to their league best record.
