Monday, December 3rd brings you an Eastern Conference matchup as the Cleveland Cavaliers travel to the Big Apple to take on the Brooklyn Nets live from the Barclays Center. Both of these teams were losers on Saturday night, as the Cavaliers lost to Toronto 106-95, and the Nets lost to Washington 102-88.
Over the last 10 meetings between these two teams, Cleveland has won seven of them, but that is a very skewered number because LeBron James is no longer with the team.
The Cavs come into this game Monday night trying to catch a team that really struggles at home off guard. Not that Cleveland is a real threat outside of the Q (or anywhere for that matter), but these Nets are even worse at home than they are on the road.
Rookie PG Collin Sexton is really coming into his own and taking more of a leadership role now that he’s starting for Cleveland. He is averaging 14.3 points per game, and adds 3.3 boards and 2.5 assists to his stats as well. He’s not a difference maker yet, but give him more time running this offense and he will be the next star players born from this Cavs team.
Tristan Thompson and Jordan Clarkson led all Cavaliers in scoring against Toronto with 18 points each, Rodney Hood and Alec Burks each added 13 in a game where Cleveland had 6 players score in double figures. Thompson really cleaned up the glass with 19 rebounds.
Cleveland didn’t shoot too well against Toronto, only 38.6% from the field, and 22.7% from long range, but they made the most of their free throw attempts, making 22 of 25 for 88%. They had 11 offensive rebounds against the Raptors, and if they can do that again vs. Brooklyn, I guarantee a victory on Monday night.
SG David Nwaba is listed as “Out” for Monday’s game.
The Nets need to figure out how to win some games at home. They haven’t had a home win in over a month, and have a better record away from the Barclays Center than they do in it. That is a trend that spells disaster every time.
Allen Crabbe led all Nets scorers with 14 points in 33 minutes of action against the Wizards on Saturday night. He will definitely need more help here on Monday, as only two of his teammates joined him in double digit scoring last game out; Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (11) and DeMarre Carrol (10).
The Nets too shot rather poorly on Saturday night, 37% from the field, and 24.2% from down town. 20 of 25 at the line was about the only bright mark when it came to Brooklyn’s shooting against the Wizards.
SG Joe Harris is listed as “questionable” for Monday nights game.
NBA Betting Trends:

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
This game could go down to which team cleans up the glass better than their opponent. In each of their last games, the second chance opportunities were plentiful, and I expect the team with the most offensive rebounds to win this game, as they will most likely need to rely on points in the paint and free throws.
This one will be a sloppy one, but it should be a close game. Neither team shoots the ball too well, especially from deep, so expect a lot of free throw attempts.
