Cleveland Cavaliers 98-129 Golden State Warriors: Twitter erupts as Stephen Curry and Draymond Green showcase their supremacy


The Golden State Warriors made the most of a second-quarter burst to eventually down the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-98. Stephen Curry and Draymond Green made several highlight plays to get the job done for the home side at the Chase Center.The duo didn’t even have to feature in the fourth quarter with six Golden State Warriors scoring in double digits to close out the game with ease. They even restricted the Cleveland Cavaliers well who shot less than 40% from the field.Cleveland Cavaliers get going early but Golden State Warriors eventually take controlIt was a fairly close affair in the first quarter. Stephen Curry stepped up for the Golden State Warriors and scored a quickfire 16 points but the Cleveland Cavaliers responded well. The likes of Collin Sexton and Jarrett Allen kept them in the running.Things changed towards the end of the second quarter where the Golden State Warriors went on a 23-8 lead to finish the first half with a 10-point advantage. The Cleveland Cavaliers couldn’t recover from there as the Dubs extended their advantage in the third quarter thanks to the playmaking of Draymond Green.The Warriors have held their opponent to 105 points or less, and 40.6% FG shooting or less, in 4 of the last 5 games— Grant Liffmann (@GrantLiffmann) February 16, 202128 games into the season, the Warriors are the 8th seed in the West with a 15-13 record.Not too bad for the projected 14th seed ahead of the season. pic.twitter.com/GYc8ifhLdt— r/Warriors (@GSWReddit) February 16, 2021I’d say it’s not the Cavs night.

(continues to whisper) but hopefully the rest of the league didn’t watch— IN THE LAB (@DevInTheLab) February 16, 2021Stephen Curry and Draymond Green too hot to handle for Cleveland Cavaliers The two veterans rose to the occasion again

Stephen Curry continued his tremendous campaign with another outstanding performance. He had 36 points for the Golden State Warriors tonight on 13-of-19 shooting including seven made threes. He’s on course to become only the third player in NBA history to record a 5-40-90 clip in multiple seasons alongside Larry Bird and Steve Nash.Curry was aided in his efforts by Draymond Green who’s been flawless as the primary playmaker for the Golden State Warriors. He’s averaged 11.6 assists per game since the start of February and had 16 dimes against the Cleveland Cavaliers.Steph Curry is averaging 30/6/5 on 50/44/94 splits.He’s carrying a team missing Klay Thompson and ALL 3 big men to a playoff spot in the West.

LA Lakers 105-122 Denver Nuggets: 5 hits and flops as Nikola Jokic’s latest triple-double trumps LeBron James and co. 



The Denver Nuggets routed the LA Lakers 122-105 to record their third straight victory in surprisingly easy fashion. The Sunday night affair was a marquee matchup that featured two title contenders who met in the Western Conference Finals last season. It was Nuggets star Nikola Jokic who came out on top as he outplayed fellow All-Star LeBron James.Anthony Davis left the game in the first half and never returned after a collision with Jokic aggravated an Achilles injury.Check out our 5 hits and flops from the LA Lakers-Denver Nuggets game:Hit: Nikola Jokic (Denver Nuggets)At the half, Nikola Jokic had 23 points, nine rebounds and six assists, and he continued to dominate the LA Lakers without scoring a single point in the second half. He had a triple-double by the end of the third quarter for the Denver Nuggets, who repeatedly found themselves open for 3-pointers thanks to Jokic’s presence on the floor.The big man orchestrated the Nuggets offense to perfection as his pinpoint passing found cutters and shooters all night long. Jokic’s board work was exceptional as well, as he grabbed 16 rebounds to go along with 10 assists.Flop: LeBron James (LA Lakers)

LeBron James had 19 points at halftime and looked like he was on his way to a big game considering the absence of Anthony Davis. Instead, James had a poor showing in the second half, finishing the game with only 22 points despite registering a near-triple-double with 10 rebounds and nine assists.He was passive offensively in the third quarter when the Denver Nuggets were slowly pulling away. The LA Lakers needed James to be superhuman in this game but he was a mere mortal in the last two quarters.Hit: Facundo Campazzo and Zeke Nnaji (Denver Nuggets)Facundo Campazzo and Zeke Nnaji did an incredible job taking advantage of their opportunity to play against the defending champion LA Lakers. Denver Nuggets coach Michael Malone boosted the rookies’ confidence by inserting them in opportune moments, and the two responded accordingly.Campazzo had 15 points on 4-of-8 shooting from the field, with three of those coming from beyond the arc. Nnaji had 16 points on a red-hot 4-of-5 shooting from three and 5-of-7 overall.Flop: Montrezl Harrell (LA Lakers)

There was a lack of passion and aggression on the part of Montrezl Harrell in this game. Last year’s Sixth Man of the Year could only muster four points and six rebounds in a lackluster 24 minutes of play.LA Lakers coach Frank Vogel could also be blamed for Harrell’s performance because of how late he inserted his big man in the third quarter. However, Harrell was ultimately the one on the floor and he has to own up to his shortcomings.Hit: Jamal Murray (Denver Nuggets)Much has been said about Jamal Murray’s inconsistency this season, but he showed his good side on Sunday night. Murray scored 25 points and made 4-of-10 from 3-point range to help the Denver Nuggets cruise to the win. Jamal Murray #27 of the Denver Nuggets warms up prior to the game against the Miami Heat at American Airlines Arena on January 27, 2021 in Miami, Florida. (Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images)The LA Lakers didn’t seem ready for how aggressive he was as Murray attacked the defense inside and out. He also tallied six rebounds and four assists.Also Read: NBA Trade Rumors: 3 teams that should target John Collins

Illinois Fighting Illini vs Northwestern Wildcats Prediction & Match Preview- February 15, 2021 | NCAA Men’s Basketball



Wooden Award 2020-21 nominee Ayo Dosunmu scored 31 points to give Illinois Fighter Illini (14-5, 10-3 Big 10) the win against Nebraska on Saturday. With that, the team is now on a 5-game winning streak and places No. 2 in Big 10 standings.Illinois will look to continue their dominant season in their fight against the Northwestern Wildcats (6-12, 3-11 Big 10) on Monday.Northwestern will look for an upset win when they step on the court to face one of the best teams in the nation. Meanwhile, Coach Chris Collins’ team dropped their 11th straight game on Saturday, suffering a heart-wrenching 64-50 loss against Rutgers.Northwestern Wildcats PreviewNorthwestern will need to be on their A-game when they face an Illinois team that beat them comprehensively the last time the two teams played this year.Their 81-56 loss to Illinois on Jan. 7 showed the team had no answer on how to stop them.Northwestern ranks second-to-last in Big 10 standings, sitting just above Nebraska by one game. The team holds a conference record of 3-11, and they will really need to toughen up when they play arguably the best team in the conference.Key Player – Chase Audige

Audige serves as the team’s leading scorer, averaging 12.8 points for the season. The sophomore guard only scored 11 points in the team’s loss to the Rutgers, but put up 19 points against Indiana and 18 against No. 24 Purdue.If Northwestern wants to keep up with Illinois, Audige must step up offensively, and defensively, when he matches up against Ayo Dosunmu on Monday.Illinois Fighting Illini PreviewThe team just continues to amaze us throughout the season. Just when we thought the team had been in a slump at one point, Illinois squashed those notions, immediately.Illinois is led by tandem Ayo Dosunmu and Kofi Cockburn, both Wooden Award Candidates, as the two have been outstanding for the team all season. Cockburn dominated against Northwestern in their last meeting, as the center scored 18 points and snatched 12 boards for a double-double. He also had 21 points in the game against Nebraska.

Kofi Cockburn ranks second in the NCAA with 14 double-doubles this season, behind only Austin Peay’s Terry Taylor with 15. Cockburn has posted double-doubles in 11 of 13 Big Ten games. https://t.co/wHwBd3mmNT— Illini Stats & Notes (@IlliniStats) February 13, 2021Brad Underwood’s team is one of the top teams in college basketball and will continue their Big 10 surge when they look to dominate against Northwestern.Key Player – Ayo DosunmuDosunmu dominated the team’s recent win against Nebraska. The junior guard is averaging 21.7 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 5.1 assists for the season.He is elite when he gets in rhythm and utilizes his all-around game on the offensive end. The guard came up big in the overtime win against Nebraska, scoring 22 points in the second half, 10 points in regulation, and the first 5 points in overtime.Illinois vs Northwestern PredictionExpect this game to end in a blow-out win for Illinois. With the way Illinois’ entire starting line-up and reserves have progressed, Northwestern might have to brace themselves for the worst.When Illinois defeated Northwestern on Jan. 7, the team was at their breaking point in winning six of their last 8 before that. But now that this team has reached their breaking point, Illinois could see their dominance against Northwestern as soon as the game tips off.Where to watch the game ?The game will be broadcast on the Big 10 Network.

Kyrie Irving is having the best season of his career and it shut up his critics


Kyrie IrvingPhoto: Getty ImagesMaybe, just maybe. Some of them were “pawns.”That’s what Kyrie Irving called “the media” before the season started, as he was coming off a failed attempt to not speak to reporters this season. Irving would eventually apologize for referring to professionals as the weakest piece on a chessboard, but feelings were hurt.But, on some level, did Irving have a point? Because all the drama — I’ll get to that in a second — and noise that once smothered Irving suddenly disappeared when he got back on the court. Taking shots at someone when they’re down and then going silent when they’re up is a pawn-like move. Keep that same energy for the good and the bad. The naysayers were quiet again last night, as the Nets defeated the Warriors 134-117 as Irving led Brooklyn with 23 points in Kevin Durant’s first game back in Oakland.This season has been a rollercoaster for Irving, as he’s only played 19 games so far. There was the “pawn” thing, others thought he should have been traded for James Harden, he took personal time away from the team without explaining why, then he was at his sister’s birthday party without a mask, he showed up on a Zoom call for Manhattan District Attorney candidate Tahanie Aboushi, and then we found out that Jackie MacMullan thinks he and other players are “property” of NBA teams. It got so ridiculous at one point that Stephen A. Smith said Irving should retire. G/O Media may get a commissionBut then, Irving started hoopin’. It’s like everyone had forgotten that he’s one of the best basketball players on Earth. 26.37.25.25.18.30.29.37.38.28.16.26.25.26.39.15.27.35.23.Those are Irving’s scoring numbers for every game he’s played this season in Brooklyn, making him the Nets’ second-leading scorer. Irving is in the midst of the best statistical season of his career. His 27.6 points per game are a career-high. He’s shooting 95.1 percent from the free-throw line, 52.5 percent from the field, and 40.9 percent from deep. His assists and rebounds have taken a dip, but that could be due to a position change on his part.As the NBA is still trying to force its players into playing what will be remembered as the worst and most lethargic All-Star Game of all time, Irving is still projected to be named a starter as the second round of fan votes have come in. Fans still find joy in watching the enigmatic star do his thing.Kyrie Irving has always been “different.” It’s just who he is. And while at some point there will be more controversy due to something he did or said, it’s always funny to see how quickly the noise around him lessens as soon as he starts dribbling a basketball. Whenever drama vanishes that quickly, it usually means it was never anything to begin with. .

North Carolina Tar Heels vs Virginia Cavaliers Prediction & Match Preview – Feburary 13, 2021 | NCAA Men’s Basketball



The 9th-ranked Virginia Cavaliers will play host to their ACC conference rival North Carolina Tar Heels on Saturday. The Cavaliers currently hold the top spot in the ACC standings, most recently defeating Georgia Tech to earn their 10th conference victory. The North Carolina Tar Heels have had an up-and-down season, but they enter this matchup in 5th place in the ACC.Match DetailsFixture: North Carolina Tar Heels vs. Virginia Cavaliers – NCAA Men’s BasketballDate & Time: Saturday, February 13th, 2021, 6 PM ETVenue: John Paul Jones Arena, Charlottesville, Virginia_________________________________________________________________North Carolina Tar Heels Preview Notre Dame v North CarolinaThe North Carolina Tar Heels are fighting to stay in the mix after a tough start to their season. Victorious in seven of their last nine games, North Carolina is looking like the perrenial contender they are.North Carolina Tar Heels is coached by the legendary Roy Williams, now in his 18th season with the program. Williams has accumulated a lifetime record of 479-158 while at North Carolina, including 9 Final Four appearances. While this Tar Heels team looked to be having an off year, they seem to have revived and can keep their momentum rolling with an upset on Saturday.

Key Player – Caleb LoveFollowing a breakout performance against Duke earlier this week, Caleb Love will be the key to victory for the Tar Heels on the road. The star freshman exploded for a season-high 25 points to lift his team to a 4-point victory.Caleb Love had averaged just over 10 points per game prior to this outburst, but perhaps he has found his stroke at the right time. The Virginia Cavaliers will need to keep a close eye on Love, as he may bring the hot hand with him on the road.North Carolina Tar Heels Predicted LineupF Garrison Brooks, F Armando Bacot, G Leaky Black, G Caleb Love, G Kerwin Walton_________________________________________________________________Virginia Cavaliers Preview

The Virginia Cavaliers carry a 14-3 overall recordThe Virginia Cavaliers outlasted the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in a defensive battle in their last matchup. While they were held to a season-low 57 points of offense, the Cavaliers’ defense allowed just 49 points, their lowest in conference play.With a commanding lead in the ACC standings, the Virginia Cavaliers can enter this matchup under no pressure. The North Carolina Tar Heels have been heating up lately, but the Cavaliers are playing their best basketball.Key Player – Sam HauserVirginia Cavaliers’ star forward Sam Hauser could make a huge impact in Saturday’s matchup with North Carolina. The 6’8″ senior is leading the Cavaliers’ offense in scoring, averaging just under 15 points per game. Hauser tallied just 8 points in Virginia’s latest win, but did his work on the boards with 10 rebounds.With a dangerous North Carolina Tar Heels team coming to town, Sam Hauser will need to display his leadership and control the paint all night. The senior will be matched up with Armando Bacot, providing a tough challenge on the glass for the talented Hauser.

Virginia Cavaliers Predicted LineupF Sam Hauser, F Jay Huff, G Kihei Clark, G Trey Murphy III, G Reece Beekman_________________________________________________________________North Carolina vs. Virginia PredictionNorth Carolina Tar Heels has a very balanced offense, with three starters averaging double digits in scoring and a team field goal percentage of 44%. The Tar Heels will certainly put up a good fight and could possibly complete the upset with another breakout performance from Caleb Love.However, the Virginia Cavaliers have denied many attempts at an upset, proving to be the top competitor in the ACC. I give the Cavaliers a slight advantage in this matchup due to their recent defensive efforts.Where to watch North Carolina vs. VirginiaThe game will be broadcast on ESPN.

Kyle Lowry’s potential trade destinations if/when Raptors decide it’s ‘time to move on’


Image: Getty ImagesLowry, the Philadelphia native, the Villanova alum, returns home. The Sixers are currently first in the Eastern Conference with a 17-7 record in the Doc Rivers and Daryl Morey era, but no one NBA team has a stranglehold on this oddity of a season thus far. Joel Embiid has looked like an MVP frontrunner, Tobias Harris should command All-Star consideration at the absolute minimum, and Ben Simmons, for better or worse, still looks like the same guy he was as a rookie. While the team’s playmaking could improve, Simmons is averaging his usual 8.0 assists per game, but as great as Embiid has been, working with Lowry would decrease his offensive workload, give the Sixers someone who could create a shot in the game’s final two minutes, and give the roster a leader it needs. What people forget about the Embiid and Simmons pairing is that they were at their best in 2018-19 when Jimmy Butler was present to carry the load. You could see the semifinal stats against the Raptors that season for yourselves. Lowry could have a similar impact, and it appears that Embiid may be ready to shoulder the responsibility, but a true point guard (who is willing to shoot from the outside) would help. It will matter come playoff time, and Lowry is a proven champion. Regarding an actual deal, the Sixers have several expirings, most notably Danny Green’s $15.4 million. They have several young pieces, led by Matisse Thybulle, Tyrese Maxey, and Shake Milton, who are all making less than $3 million each this season, and they have most of their first-round picks going forward, which were discussed in the Harden deal before he went to Brooklyn. They also have Ben Simmons at nearly $30 million, and he’s maxed out through 2025. Again, just saying. .

The Tar Heels could care less about COVID, so Miami says ‘peace out’ and flies home


Day’Ron Sharpe was among a group of UNC players who decided to celebrate a win by attending a large, maskless gathering.Photo: Getty ImagesBruh…It’s the only appropriate term to describe what happened over the weekend down in Chapel Hill, as members of North Carolina’s basketball team and a couple of hundred students lost their minds during a pandemic that has killed over 462,000 Americans — all because they beat one of the worst Duke teams Coach K has ever had … by four points.Monday night’s game between North Carolina and Miami was canceled after a video surfaced featuring UNC’s Day’Ron Sharpe and Armando Bacot celebrating their win over Duke at a party without masks. The video was uploaded by The Daily Tar Heel, the school’s student newspaper.The win between the two teams that have a combined 19-13 record was so impressive to a few hundred of UNC’s students, that they celebrated in the streets by jumping over a mattress that was on fire, while everyone in attendance was without a mask.Before Monday night, Miami hadn’t dealt with a single cancelation or postponement all season. It’s why they had no problem turning around and flying right back home.G/O Media may get a commissionThe timing of the events is the most interesting part of this fiasco, as the story broke on the same day that UNC made history. Monday’s unveiling of the latest AP Top 25 rankings revealed that for the first time since 1961, UNC, Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, and UCLA were all unranked. The Tar Heels are on the bubble for making the NCAA Tournament.Ironically, besides the shenanigans that students and players at UNC were involved in, this is a week that’s once again proving how much trouble college basketball is having during COVID. Baylor, the nation’s No. 2 ranked team, has postponed three more games, bringing their total to at least 10 games that have been postponed/canceled this season, as they aren’t scheduled to play again until February 20. And then there’s Michigan, the nation’s No. 3 ranked team that hasn’t played since January 22. To get a better understanding of how tumultuous this season has been, the NCAA has a running list of the latest COVID news for this season. Look it over. But, beware, it’s a lot. This is what happens when you need a basketball tournament to take place because canceling last year’s version of it resulted in $600 million in lost revenue. .

Stephen Curry shoots unbelievable three; LeBron James with a dunk fest at Staples Center | NBA Highlights



The NBA had a number of teams going head-to-head on Monday. The night saw Stephen Curry making one highlight play after another, while LeBron James soared in for several dunks in his 18th season in the league. Ja Morant also put up a crazy shot in the Memphis Grizzlies’ game versus the Toronto Raptors.There were so many incredible plays that happened in the NBA, and we’re here to get you caught up. Here are the top NBA highlights from around the league on Monday night. NBA Highlights: Stephen Curry with dribbling clinic and three; Ja Morant uses two hands to make the bucket Stephen Curry #30 of the Golden State Warriors is introduced before a game against the Boston Celtics at Chase Center on February 02, 2021 in San Francisco, California. (Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)Everyone knows Stephen Curry can dance with the basketball in his hands like very few can. He showed off his dribbling wizardry with this incredible shot from beyond the arc. Too bad the Golden State Warriors couldn’t win against the San Antonio Spurs, who went home with a 105-100 victory.In the Toronto Raptors-Memphis Grizzlies game, Ja Morant took and made an insane three using both hands. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime shot that you need to see to believe!NBA Highlights: LaMelo Ball ties franchise record; Charlotte Hornets execute beautiful passing to end 1st quarter

Charlotte Hornets rookie LaMelo Ball has been in scintillating form in the last few games. Against the Houston Rockets, he led his team to a 119-94 win by draining a rookie franchise record of 7 threes in the game.One of the best NBA highlights of the night is this volleyball-type play by the Hornets, who played hot potato with the basketball. The Houston Rockets never knew what hit them!NBA Highlights: LeBron James slamming vs OKC Thunder; Montrezl Harrell with huge block to punctuate win

LA Lakers forward LeBron James may have been tired from a 2OT win against the Detroit Pistons the other night but he didn’t show it in this game. James had numerous dunks to lead the Lakers to a 119-112 win against the OKC Thunder on Monday.The Lakers had already secured the win in the final seconds of overtime but Montrezl Harrell just wouldn’t let the Thunder score with this huge block. Nasty!

NBA Highlights: Nikola Jokic with a crafty pass; Kristaps Porzingis with acrobatic layupMVP candidate Nikola Jokic has been racking up assists at an unbelievable pace this season, and this pass is a perfect example of his court vision.In the same game, Giannis Antetokounmpo powered his way to the hoop with this spin-and-slam as he led the Milwaukee Bucks to a win against the Denver Nuggets.NBA Highlights: Kristaps Porzingis with acrobatic layup; Dejounte Murray with career-high in steals

Dallas Mavericks forward/center Kristaps Porzingis made this gorgeous move to the basket. The Unicorn led the Mavs to a 127-122 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.Going back to the Warriors-Spurs matchup, Dejounte Murray was not only scoring, but he was also stealing the ball at a career-high pace, with 8 steals, nearly getting a triple-double.That’s it for today’s NBA highlights!

The Derrick Rose trade could work for Knicks, but only if Immanuel Quickley is allowed to grow


Derrick Rose is headed for New York… for the second time.Image: APDerrick Rose is back in his second home. The New York Knicks re-acquired the former MVP in a deal over the weekend with the Detroit Pistons, confirmed on Monday morning. The Knicks sent a 2021 second-round pick and enigmatic 2017 top-10 draft choice, Dennis Smith Jr., to Detroit.It’s a return to NYC that nobody really asked for, but one Knicks fans shouldn’t be mad at unless the team decides to keep Elfrid Payton beyond the March 25 trade deadline. The deal reunites Rose with the head coach he’s had the most success with in Tom Thibodeau, and gives the Knicks a top-six-or-seven rotation piece at the minimal cost of a non-rotation player and a second-round draft choice. Rose is also in the final season of a two-year deal worth $15 million total. Quietly, Rose has played his best basketball post-ACL tear since initially joining the Knicks prior to the 2016-17 season. In the last five years, Rose has averaged 16.6 points and 4.3 assists while shooting over 47 percent from the floor, and that includes a bizarre stint with Cleveland Cavaliers, as well as a nine-game cup of coffee with the Minnesota Timberwolves that same 17-18 season, when he appeared to be at the end of the line before a resurgence the following year. (Should be noted that Rose did average over 14 points, shot nearly 51 percent from the field and 70 percent from three in five playoff games with Minnesota that season, though, in his only taste of playoff basketball without the Chicago Bulls.)In 2018-19, Rose produced the highest offensive rating of his career, 114 per 100 possessions. Last season with the Detroit Pistons, his 109 O-rating was the fourth-highest of his career, and his 25.1 points per-36 minutes were a personal best, one whole point higher than his 2010-11 MVP campaign. In both the last two seasons, Rose finished in the top-seven of Sixth Man of the Year voting, successfully reinventing his basketball career as a scoring lead guard with above league average playmaking abilities. This season, Rose is good for 14.2 points and 4.2 assists in just under 23 minutes per game, though he only shot 43 percent from the field, but give him a break, he was a Detroit Piston. Per-36 minutes, Rose’s averages sit at 22.4 points and 6.6 assists. For reference: This is slightly up from his 20.3 points and 6.4 assists per-36 during his seven-season Bulls tenure. (No, he’s not a better player now, necessarily.) G/O Media may get a commissionThe Knicks indisputably got the best player in the deal, but if Payton remains on the team, and or the acquisition of Rose stunts rookie Immanuel Quickley’s growth, what’s the ultimate benefit? At 11.9 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game, while logging the fourth-most minutes on his team (28.5), Payton’s statistically one of the NBA’s least productive starting point guards, and would be better served coming off the bench for a contender instead of standing in Quickley’s way. Quickley is averaging 12.0 points and 2.7 assists while logging only 18.9 minutes per contest. He’s also shooting 36.3 percent from three, and providing more hope for Knick fans than fellow Kentucky-alum Kevin Knox ever has. Quickley’s minutes have been as consistent as his shooting, but if the Knicks are ever going to conclude their seemingly multiple decades long rebuild, developing young talent is the essential method. Quickley doesn’t need 30 minutes per night, but he should hover around at least 20-25 for the bulk of his rookie campaign, unless he Swanton Bombs into a rookie wall. And Austin Rivers has been exactly who Austin Rivers has been throughout his career, which isn’t to say that it’s bad; it’s to say that Quickley’s development should supersede a nightly 8-2-2 in 23 minutes. IQ already has eight games of 16 or more points, including four of 23-plus. Play Rose, play Quickley; play Rose with Quickley, but clear the way by dealing Payton (and perhaps other stuff to acquire draft capital or a player to help your playoff push) elsewhere. .

Brooklyn Nets vs Detroit Pistons Prediction & Match Preview – February 9th, 2021 | NBA Season 2020-21



Brooklyn Nets will head over to the Motor City on Tuesday to take on the slumping Detroit Pistons for their first meeting of the 2020-21 NBA season.The Brooklyn Nets have hit a rough patch as they enter this contest on a two-game losing streak. Two-time NBA champion Kevin Durant’s absence from their lineup has hampered the team’s performance of late.
