Offensively, Utah is putting up 109.4 points per game while shooting 47 percent as a squad. The Jazz are without Mike Conley right now due to a hamstring injury.

Rudy Gobert is adding 14.8 points and 14.4 rebounds per contest.
Nets win two straight
Brooklyn is coming off a 108-86 win at home over Atlanta on Sunday. The Nets have won back-to-back games coming into tonight. Brooklyn is now 18-20 on the season, 11-8 at home, 18-20 against the spread and 20-17-1 with the under.

NBA Betting Trends
The Jazz are 8-1 against the spread in their last nine games as a favorite and 7-2 ATS in their last nine Tuesday games.
The Nets have covered the spread in six straight games as a home underdog and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 home games.
Utah won the first meeting this season at home, 119-114. The Nets managed to cover the spread in the loss. The Jazz have been the hottest team in the league, winning and covering in most instances for the last three weeks. Brooklyn did look good with Irving back in the lineup, but that was against an awful Hawks squad. Utah is playing well, even on the road. I think they continue to do their thing and get past this Brooklyn team that has struggled for consistency.
