3* Main Event on Brooklyn Nets -
Houston vs. Brooklyn,
02/22/2013 19:30 EDT,
Score: 106 - 96
Point Spread: -1½/-105 Brooklyn
Brooklyn is the hot team coming into this game with a four game win streak. The Nets are 13-5 ATS after 2 or more consecutive wins and will try to keep that momentum alive against the Houston Rockets today. Deron Williams is playing well coming off a 23 point performance with eight assists to help the Nets come back from 15 points down against Milwaukee.
Houston’s defense has been horrible and they are not going to be able to get into a shootout with every team they play. The Rockets have given up over 100 points in their last seven games. Kevin McHale is 3-15 ATS in road games after allowing 100 points or more 2 straight games as the coach of Houston.
Houston has not been good on the road with an 11-18 record this season. The Nets are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 home games vs. a team winning 40% or less of their road games this season. They should be able to keep their win streak alive against Houston's non-existent defense.
