Denver at Brooklyn

2 units on Brooklyn -2 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: WIN
The Nuggs are in the midst of a 14-game span where they only play three at home. They performed very well against Cleveland the other night in a big game and as a result won't have as much to give tonight. The Nets are 37-17 ATS in home games when playing against a team with a losing record over the last 3 seasons. New Jersey performs well in close matchups at home and I think they'll bounce back here after getting creamed by the Spurs at home on Friday night.
The difference here will likely be defense. New Jersey holds opponents to just 90 points per game in East Rutherford while Denver gives up over 100 points on the road. Two stars on the Nets.
