great insight.  and the bucks are playing with an exciting energy of late!  lopez dropped 32 in the first  meeting.  he won't be available.  BUT, fortunately for the nets, 81 year old kevin garnett will be availabe.

Milwaukee is getting back two key pieces in Larry Sanders and Ersan Ilyasova AND they have been competitive in five (5) of their last six (6) games (the only exception was San Antonio rolled into town and blew them out).  Brooklyn on the other hand, has dropped their last four in a row.  In addition, Deron Williams was quoted saying “this year has been a nightmare” which alludes to the fact there is a bunch of finger pointing going on in the locker room and some chemistry issues; yet the Wise Men in Vegas expect the Nets to cover five (5) points in chalk…

 

It makes sense too me Ladies and Gentlemen so I’m siding with the folks who have deeper pockets than me.  With that said, put me down for Brooklyn minus the chalk for a Nickel please.  Thanks!

It's funny how the media quotes people. What Deron Williams actually said was that the PROBLEM WITH THE INJURIES is "a nightmare"; not the season by itself.

But nontheless Brooklyn is struggeling. Kidd seems unhappy with the energy the players are bringing to the court night-in and night-out.
I see the lack of energy being key tonight. Milwaukee getting more players healty and back from the injury list which should give them a boost in motivation.

Besides; Milwaukee has lost the last 3 matchups vs the Nets by an avg of 4.3 points. Before that they  have won 13 straight vs Brooklyn but Mil's roster changed considerably of the late; keep that in mind!

Sanders and Ilyasova are good signs for the Milwaukee roster. Look for Brandon Knight to have a big night vs this Nets team.
Going with the points and Milwaukee in this one.

Mil +5

Mil coming off three straight ATS wins, BKN with a hellish four straight ATS losses. Something's got to give. Two key players coming back for Mil will likely ruin their current rotation where they perform better. Theyd still need to adjust with their plays. Long layoff doesnt help either for the Bucks. I like the odds for BKN to cover. Good luck!
