Nets vs Kings News and Preview | NBA Picks
Brooklyn come into this game on a terrible run of form. The have lost their last 5 games in a row and now sit sixth in the Eastern Conference. They are 3 games behind the Bulls in first and only sit 1.5 games ahead of Charlotte in seventh who will be determined to take advantage of this poor run from the Nets.
The Nets were most peoples pick town the East this year however have not looked like the team many expected at the start of the season.
Brooklyn lost their last game against Phoenix by a score of 121-111. This was seen by many as a potential NBA Finals matchup and if it happens to be, I’d be backing the Suns to win the series. The Nets struggled for parts of the game and the gap left by Kevin Durant is very apparent. Kyrie Irving and James Harden combined for 48 points, 9 rebounds, 13 assists and 2 steals in thew game against the Suns. Blake Griffin added a respectable 17 from the bench.
This is game 3 of 5 for Brooklyn who are on a 5 game Western road trip.
