1 unit on Brooklyn -6 (-109) (risk 1 to return 1.92) RESULT: LOSS
Brooklyn is out to avenge a 114-96 loss to the Hawks on New Year's Day, as the Nets shot only 40.7 percent. They have just completed a two-game sweep of the Heat, including 98-85 on Monday, as James Harden and Kevin Durant each scored 20 points and Kyrie Irving added 16 points. It's starting to come together for the Nets after the Harden trade, and finally getting Irving back from a long absence. They didn't shoot well on Monday, hitting only 40 percent, but the Nets came through defensively holding Miami to 36.9-percent shooting. Atlanta is playing a back-to-back after beating the Clippers, who were without three starters last night and Brooklyn has covered five straight versus teams with winning records. Also, Brooklyn is 11-5 ATS the last 16 meetings, including 5-2 ATS at Atlanta. Take the Nets.
