In their only meeting last season, the Nets won on the road by 106-108, beating the odds and were under the total. Under is 4-1 in their last 5. Nets are 8-3 in their last 11 overall meetings and 25-9 in their last 34 in Cleveland. Cleveland is 3-3 at home, while Brooklyn is 2-2 on the road. Nets have the third-best offense in the league, scoring 119.3 ppg to Cavs’ league-low of 99.5. On the other hand, the Cavaliers have the second-best defense (103.9 to 113.7 ppg).

I’m going to pick the Nets with -10 tonight. They will have their superstar trio complete tonight and they are simply too good and motivated to do anything less than an easy 10-point win.
