Both the Hawks and Nets will be playing in the 2nd leg of their back to back come Saturday night when the two teams meet on Saturday night in Atlanta.
Both teams were in action on Wednesday night with the Nets coming away victorious while the Hawks were trounced.
Brooklyn led throughout and put the Knicks away late as they grabbed a 110-104 win. As for the Hawks, they were absolutely dominated in a 107-84 decision in Charlotte.
Wins have been rare to come by for this Brooklyn team.
They entered Wednesday’s contest losers of 8 in a row and seemingly had nothing going for them offensively. In fact, on the season they are averaging just 95.6 points per game.
Brooklyn put in 110 points, which was their highest point total in quite some time in the win.
The Nets have 5 players score in double figures, led by Brook Lopez who had 20 points and 8 rebounds. Lopez has averaged 19.7 points per game this season to go along with 8.5 rebounds.
The most misleading thing for the Nets has been their road play versus ATS on the road. The Nets are just 4-14 SU away from the Barclays Center. However, backers have loved them as they’ve gone 12-6 ATS in those 18 games.
The Hawks had a franchise record 60 wins last season and finished in the top spot of the Eastern Conference.
However, they look like they will be fighting for a middle of the pack seed this season in the Eastern Conference as they’ve already dropped 16 games this season. Atlanta was absolutely dominated in Charlotte 107-84, as they were outscored by 21 in the middle quarters.
It was one of Atlanta’s poorest performances of the season as just one player scored in double figures, Paul Millsap, who had 20 points. The other 4 starters combined put in 27 points, which is certainly a recipe for disaster.
Atlanta has also been extremely disappointing at home this season. While they do sit 13-7, 6 games above .500, they were much better last season inside their own place. The Hawks just haven’t been able to find any consistency from their starting lineup, similar to what happened on Wednesday.

Free NBA Prediction:
Atlanta just hasn’t been the same team this season as they were last season and they’re not getting much production offensively.
This will be a tough matchup for them. Atlanta is an inside type of team and Brooklyn has the inside the paint defense to compete with them.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Brooklyn +12
Sprinkling some on the Nets ML may be worth a look here. They matchup well with this Hawks team and are running into them at the right time.
Atlanta isn’t playing that well and while either are the Nets, they have kept road games closer as their ATS record is 12-6. Look for them to do that here in this spot as both teams will be tired on the 2nd leg of a back to back, making this a sloppy, close game.
NBA Free Score Prediction: Atlanta 99- Brooklyn 96
The Nets will have a chance here, as this one can really go either way.
