NBA FREE PICK: Take Brooklyn. According to latest NBA trends, Orlando is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game, 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 vs. NBA Atlantic, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. loss,  0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall and are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. Eastern Conference. Brooklyn is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record and favorite is 5-0-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

Brooklyn has won seven straight at Barclays Center as they head into Monday's matchup with the struggling Orlando Magic. The Nets got off to a 12-2 start under interim coach P.J. Carlesimo, and they've been a much better team at home, boasting a 16-7 record, and they're seeking their longest home win streak since winning nine straight in 2006. The Magic have lost five straight and 16 of 18 after a 104-102 home loss to Detroit on Sunday. Orlando's problem is on the defensive end as they have allowed 100 or more points in 12 of its last 14 games. Leading scorer Arron Afflalo has been hampered by a left calf strain and is questionable tonight. Brook Lopez (18.6 points, 7.3 rebounds) should have made the All-Star game while the Nets have a terrific backcourt duo in Joe Johnson (17.2 points) and Deron Williams (17.1 points, 7.8 assists). With a little home cooking, expect the Nets to roll in this one.
