They both are coming off losses and need to get a win to get their seasons’ back on track.


The Nets enter this contest off an 18-point blowout loss to the Bulls and dropping two of their last three. Coach Lionel Hollins has been experimenting with the line-up, interchanging veterans to improve their shooting percentage.

Brooklyn is shooting 29.3% behind the 3-point line, which ranks third last in the league.

The Nets are led by veterans Deron Williams, Kevin Garnett, and Joe Johnson. Last game they shot a miserable 2-14 from three and sharpshooter Joe Johnson shot 1 for 7.

Interior passing has been the Nets biggest strength thus far. Power forward Kevin Garnett and center Brook Lopez are mostly responsible for this, they both have been excellent passers throughout their career. The Nets average 20.2 touches within 12 feet of the hoop which puts them in the top five.

Despite the good ball movement, the Nets are only averaging 98.9 points per game. In order for the team to score more and win, point guard Deron Williams needs to shoot the ball well.

New York

The Knicks are led by rookie head coach Derek Fisher. Fisher is faced with the challenge of implementing the triangle offense.

Star small forward Carmelo Anthony is averaging 23.7 points per game, which is down from his previous season total. New York has really been struggling to learn the new offense, they only average 93.4 points per game. Similar to the Nets, the Knicks do not have a problem moving the ball.

They average 362.3 passes per contest, which is good for second in the league. The back court of Shumpert and Calderon average a total of about 20 points per game, which is not a good number based on their shooting abilities.

The Knicks front court is missing center Andrea Bargnani due to a hamstring injury, which has proved to be a significant loss.

New York has oddly shot the ball much better on the road as opposed to playing at Madison Square Garden. Last home game against the Heat, the Knicks shot 3 for 24 from behind the arc.

[dfads params=’groups=63741&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

To win games this year, the Knicks will need to get big performances out of Carmelo Anthony and sixth man J.R. Smith.

NBA Handicapping Trends:

  • Knicks are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games.
  • Nets are 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 Tuesday games.
  • Under is 4-0 in Nets last four overall.
  • Under is 12-2 in last 14 games in New York.

NBA Gambling Prediction

The Knicks will struggle to score in the new triangle offense. Carmelo Anthony’s back is still bothering him, but he still will not hesitate to put up all his shots. New York will struggle to defend the front line of Brooklyn and the absence of Bargnani will be apparent.

Free 4* NBA Betting Pick: Brooklyn -1

Expect a big game from Deron Williams and Joe Johnson to get his shooting back on track.

Brooklyn 101, New York 88

Brooklyn will take advantage of the point guard matchup and Kevin Garnett will thrive in the post.

The New Jersey Nets are enjoying another lost season.  By the time you read this there could be some trades that have dramatically changed the look of the roster, but assuming that doesn’t happen what you see is a team with one really good player, one better than average player and a host of injured players – and not much else.
