Nets roll past Kings
Brooklyn earned a 116-97 home win Friday night over Sacramento to improve to 7-8 overall and 5-3 at home. Spencer Dinwiddie led the Nets with 23 points on 8-of-15 shooting plus 7-of-7 at the free throw line. He also racked up seven assists and two steals. Joe Harris accounted for 22 points, four boards and two blocked shots. Garrett Temple tallied 18 points, four dimes, three rebounds and two steals. Jarrett Allen registered 11 points and nine caroms. Dzanan Musa added 10 points and six boards off the bench. Brooklyn outscored the Kings 60-47 in the second half to put it away.
Knicks' rally falls short
New York lost 111-104 at home Saturday night versus San Antonio to drop to 4-12 overall and 3-5 at home. The Knicks outscored the Spurs 61-43 in the second half but could not overcome its big deficit. Marcus Morris Sr. led New York with 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting including 4-of-6 from 3-point range plus 2-of-2 at the free throw line. He also grabbed seven rebounds. Bobby Portis tallied 16 points, two boards and two assists off the bench. Julius Randle had 14 points, eight caroms and three assists. R.J. Barrett accounted for 13 points, five rebounds and four dimes. Wayne Ellington added 13 points in 21 minutes of action as a reserve.
NBA Betting Trends
The Nets are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games versus the Eastern Conference. Brooklyn is 0-5 ATS in its last five games versus the Atlantic Division.
The Knicks are 23-47 ATS in their last 70 home games. New York is 7-2 ATS in the last nine meetings.
Even with Kyrie Irving sidelined with a shoulder injury, I like the Nets here. Dinwiddie is fully capable of running the show and Brooklyn had yesterday off whereas the Knicks expended a lot of energy trying to rally against the Spurs. Even though New York has had its number quite a bit lately, this one seems to be the Nets' for the taking.
