Featured Game | San Antonio Spurs vs. Brooklyn Nets

Why the Nets can cover

Brooklyn’s offense is fantastic this season, but its defense is also playing quite well. The Nets are in the top 10 of the league in defensive rating, yielding fewer than 1.12 points per possession. Brooklyn leads the NBA in blocked shots (7.0 per game) and 2-point percentage allowed (50.4%), and the Nets are in the top five in field goal percentage allowed (45.2%). San Antonio ranks in the bottom five of the NBA in offensive efficiency, and the Spurs commit a turnover on 15.4% of offensive possessions.

On the offensive end, Brooklyn is facing a San Antonio defense that is dead-last in the NBA in defensive efficiency, and the Nets are No. 1 in the league in shooting efficiency. That includes 50.8% from the field and 38.8% from 3-point range, and the Nets are in the top eight in fast break points (16.3 per game) and assists (26.3 per game).

Why the Spurs can cover

The Spurs are led by 23-year-old forward Keldon Johnson, who is enjoying a productive season with 21.1 points per game. San Antonio is also a fantastic passing team, ranking in the top five of the NBA in assist percentage and assists per game. The Spurs average more than 55 points in the paint per game, a top-five mark, and San Antonio is in the top eight in offensive rebound rate (30.3%) and second-chance points (15.6 per game). 

The Spurs are above-average in field goal percentage (47.3%), and San Antonio is facing a Brooklyn team that struggles to prevent free throw attempts, giving up 24.6 per game. On defense, the Spurs are very good at keeping opponents off the line (22.8 attempts allowed per game), and San Antonio should benefit from the Nets ranking dead-last in the NBA in offensive rebound rate at 22.7%.
