Brooklyn at Cleveland

1 unit on Cleveland -9.5 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: LOSS
Some respect here for the Nets all things considered. They won their first game last night with the return of Jason Kidd. Kidd is not in basketball shape as of yet, however. Tough spot here for the undermanned Nets. The Cavs are very good at home, having not lost at home since early November, the third to be exact. Kidd's presence will not matter enough here. The Cavs push the ball so much that Kidd and Co. will have a very tough time keeping up, having played a close game last night. Kidd and Mourning and their combined age of 250 will not be able to keep up with Franchise and the gang. Cleveland is 6-1 ATS as a favorite of 3.5 to 9.5 points this season. Going samller here due to the number. One star on the Cavs minus the points.
