Brooklyn Nets vs. Phoenix Suns Prediction

This is not the game that we expected a week ago, and the reason for that is Kyrie Irving. Irving demanded a trade this week out of Brooklyn, and he was dealt to the Dallas Mavericks on Monday. The trade came as a surprise to some, but it is on par with Irving’s history of struggling to stay on a team. The Irving move has many people wondering if the Nets will continue to make trades and either try to add onto their roster and make a run or shop superstar Kevin Durant.

The thing about this trade that makes it odd is when Irving and KD were on the court together, Brooklyn appeared to be one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference. It now appears that the Nets experiment has been a disaster. They will look to make the most of it until the season ends. None of the players that the Nets acquired for Irving will be active tonight.

Phoenix, meanwhile, will return their superstar tonight in the form of Devin Booker. He will be on a minute limit but it should be a significant lift for this Suns team. Phoenix has been playing some pretty good basketball as of late despite his absence and they will look to continue that with a road win tonight. Phoenix comes into this game as a six-point favorite. 

I am turning to a prop for this game and I am backing Mikal Bridges over on rebounds tonight. He has struggled against this number as of late and it has driven it down to 3.5. Bridges is a solid rebounder, and in a game like tonight with a lot of pace, I believe that Bridges clears this number fairly easily. He is averaging 4.1 overall on the year and logs some of the most minutes on the team. Phoenix is still dealing with injuries to some key bench pieces, which will require more time on the floor for Bridges. Let’s stay hot and cash in!
