Brooklyn vs Phoenix: prediction for the NBA match
Two weeks ago, Brooklyn suffered an away defeat to Phoenix. Will the Nets get revenge on February 8? The answer is in our prediction.
Brooklyn traded Kyrie Irving to Dallas. In the previous match Vaughn's men played against the Clippers without him. Cameron Thomas managed to replace Irving. 21-year old player scored 47 points, made four rebounds and three assists. But it was not enough for a victory, the Nets lost by a 116:124 score.
Newly acquired Spencer Dinwiddie and Dorian Finney-Smith might be available for the upcoming game. Former Dallas players should strengthen team's squad.
Phoenix finally started to get victories even without Devin Booker and Cameron Payne. Arizona team is putting up outstanding results. Monty Williams' men won 8 of 10 latest matches, rising up to 5th position in the Eastern conference.
In two latest matches Phoenix left no chance to Boston (106:94) and Detroit (116:110). The Suns will try to extend their winning streak in an attempt to get closer to the top of the standings.
Ставка Brooklyn: total over 110,5 points
Nets scored more than 110 points in 3 of 4 latest matches
Ставка Ayton: total over 16,5 points
DeAndre averages 17,7 points per game on away matches
It is unclear, what to expect from Brooklyn. Loss of Irving seriously affected team's performance. Addition of Denwiddie and Finney-Smith is unlikely to help the Nets. Phoenix should be able to beat the visitors.
Our prediction - Handicap (-4) points on Phoenix
Despite all of their problems, Brooklyn played well in the previous match. Young players surely want to prove themselves in front of their head coach. Maybe someone will put up a high-scoring performance once again. In this case, we are expecting a high-scoring game against Phoenix.
Our second bet is on total over 222,5 points
