The Nets (31-46-3 ATS) are 10-5 SU in their last 15 contests but are 1-5 ATS in their last six matches even as the total has gone OVER in five of Brooklyn’s last six outings against Cleveland. Brooklyn, which will miss Goran Dragic (*quarantine protocols) and Seth Curry (ankle) due to injuries while Joe Harri (ankle) and Ben Simmons (conditioning) remain out indefinitely, is coming off back-to-back wins, including a 110-98 victory over the New York Knicks on Wednesday.
Cleveland is reeling from back-to-back losses, including a 115-120 loss to the Orlando Magic on Tuesday. The Cavs are trying to hold off the Nets for the No.7 seed in the East despite being undermanned with Jarrett Allen (finger), Colin Sexton (knee) and Eric Mobley (ankle) all out with injuries.
