NBA FREE PICK: Take Brooklyn. According to latest NBA Trends, the favorite is 7-3 ATS L10 in series. The Brooklyn Nets open the $1 billion Barclays Center, which will mark the first professional sports contest held in Brooklyn since 1957, when the Brooklyn Dodgers played their final game in Ebbets Field before moving to Los Angeles. Toronto is beginning a stretch in which it plays 15 of 21 games on the road. Brooklyn is the last NBA team to play a game. Guard Joe Johnson makes his franchise debut after being acquired from the Atlanta Hawks in the offseason. That's a big left for the Nets, who also have a strong frontcourt, led by healthy C Brook Lopez, rebounding machine Kris Humphries and defensive-minded Gerald Wallace. Deron Williams runs the show and should have a big season now that he has more weapons around him, unlike last season when he appeared to be the only competent player on the floor. The Nets will have a big and excited home crowd on their side, which wasn't always the case in New Jersey.
