Brooklyn and Cleveland play a dual game in New York. The first meeting ended in a 115:109 victory for the Cavaliers. Will the Nets be able to get revenge?
The loss in the first game against Cleveland was the fourth straight for the Nets. Before that, the team failed to beat Oklahoma (107:121), Sacramento (96:101), and Denver (102:108). As you can see from these results, Brooklyn is doing well on defense but has expectedly begun to have problems on offense. At this point, the team simply doesn’t have a stable scoring unit. Well, there is Cam Thomas. But he’s trusted with minimal minutes on the floor, perhaps because he doesn’t fit Coach Vaughn’s defensive model.
While the Nets have noticeably stagnated, the Cavaliers, in contrast, have improved of late. The squad has won seven of their last nine games, including victories over Eastern Conference powerhouses Boston and Miami. Cleveland remains the strongest defense of the season, although there may be doubts about the team’s playoff prospects. In the same stretch of the last nine games, Philadelphia (109:118) and Miami (115:119) showed that the Cavaliers’ defense could be neutralized, and the Ohio State team is not always capable of finding an offensive answer.
Tips Of The Game
The opponents broke the proposed total for the upcoming match in six previous face-to-face matches. In addition, this figure was surpassed in nine of the last ten away games of Cleveland and five of the previous seven of Brooklyn. So, a bet on TO has the right to exist. As for the outcome, we would suggest looking at another Cavaliers win. However, Cleveland is much better at home than away this season.
