Kings heating up

Buddy Hield is leading the Kings with 20.5 points and 4.9 rebounds per game while De’Aaron Fox is adding 17.6 points and 7.3 assists per game.
Nets hot as well
Brooklyn is riding a three-game win streak following a 117-115 win at Orlando on Friday. The Nets have covered the spread in all three wins. They are now 24-23 overall, 12-11 at home, 26-21 against the spread and 25-22 with the over.
The Nets have been middle of the road on offense and defense throughout the year. They put up 111.6 points per game while giving up 112 points per contest. D’Angelo Russell has been leading the team this season with 19.0 points and 6.4 assists per game while Spencer Dinwiddie is adding 17.1 points and 5.0 assists per contest.
NBA Betting Trends
The Kings are 7-1 against the spread in the spread in their last 8 Monday games and 21-5 ATS in their last 26 games playing on 1 day of rest.
The Nets have covered the spread in four straight home games and in five of their last six against Western Conference opponents.
The Kings have played well lately, but most of the wins have been at home and the road win was by two against a poor Detroit team. The Nets have been playing improved basketball for multiple weeks and have especially played well at home. I think the Nets will be able to slow down the Kings offense while continuing to ride Russell and Dinwiddie to an improved offensive output. Go with Brooklyn.
