The Brooklyn Nets will battle the Cleveland Cavaliers in the seven vs. eight play-in round. Matt McCuen is here to break down the game and share his pick.

Brooklyn Nets vs Cleveland Cavaliers Prediction: Trust The Nets Offense in Round One

The Brooklyn Nets will battle the Cleveland Cavaliers in the seven vs. eight play-in round. These two teams had very opposite expectations coming into the season. The Cavs were a young team who was not expected to compete much, while the Nets were the favorites to come out of the east.

Brooklyn Nets vs Cleveland Cavaliers Prediction

The Nets had a sluggish start to their season and could never really get things flowing. The other issue for the Nets was star Kyrie Irving could not play home games due to covid protocols. The Cavs have had to deal with some tough injuries after a great start to their season. Star guard Darius Garland had really stepped up in the absence of Collin Sexton. Sexton was the team's best player pre-injury, and the Cavs have come back to earth since he’s been out. Ricky Rubio also suffered a season-ending injury, which really hurt the Cavs. The Nets remain one of the heaviest favorites to win the east despite being the number seven seed. The duo of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant is one of the most lethal the sport has ever seen, and there is optimism that all-star Ben Simmons will return in round one.

The play I am turning to is going to be to back the nets on the first-half spread. I believe this team is good enough to win a championship, and I believe they blow out Cleveland on Tuesday night. Cleveland has been a great story this year, but I don’t believe they have any shot against this nets team. The Net's offense looks to be too much for the Cavs to keep pace with. The line we are getting here is too short in my opinion not to capitalize and take Brooklyn. I believe it gets ugly early, and we cruise to this first-half win. Let’s stay hot on the hardwood!
