Nets take down Rockets

Brooklyn earned a 123-116 home win Friday night over Houston to improve to 2-3 overall and 2-2 at home. The Nets outscored the Rockets a combined 71-50 in the second and third quarters to take control. Taurean Prince paced Brooklyn with 27 points on 9-of-17 shooting including 6-of-10 from 3-point distance plus 3-of-4 at the free throw line. He also ripped down 12 rebounds. Caris LeVert tallied 25 points, four boards and four assists. Kyrie Irving had 22 points, 10 dimes and four boards. Garrett Temple accounted for 16 points, seven caroms, three assists, two steals and two blocked shots off the bench. Joe Harris added 15 points, nine rebounds, three steals and two assists.

Pistons fall at Bulls

Detroit lost by a count of 112-106 Friday night at Chicago to drop to 2-4 overall and 1-2 on the road. The Pistons trailed 30-23 after one quarter and were unable to bounce back. Andre Drummond led Detroit with 25 points on 11-of-17 shooting plus 3-of-5 at the free throw line. He also registered 24 rebounds, three blocked shots, two assists and two steals. Derrick Rose had 23 points, seven assists and three steals off the bench. Luke Kennard contributed 15 points, four assists and three rebounds. Markieff Morris contributed 12 points and four boards. Langston Galloway added 11 points, two caroms and two dimes as a reserve.

NBA Betting Trends

Brooklyn

The Nets are 1-8 ATS in their last nine games overall. Brooklyn is 0-6 ATS in its last six games versus the Eastern Conference.

Detroit

The Pistons are 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games overall. Detroit is 0-4 ATS in its last four home meetings versus the Nets.

Prediction:

Both teams played last night and while the Nets had to travel further, I don't think there is really anything to take away from it. Detroit has a couple of injuries in Blake Griffin and Reggie Jackson holding it back, while the Nets played arguably their best game of the season last night in disposing of the Rockets. I think this Brooklyn squad could still be a playoff team if all the pieces fall into place this season as the back end of the Eastern Conference race is up for grabs like it is every year. Look for the Nets to take advantage of the Detroit injuries and grab the win here.
