Pick ATS: Nets -5

The Nets snapped their two-game losing streak on Tuesday night with a 118-105 win over the Houston Rockets. Irving led Brooklyn with 42 points on 13-of-24 shooting from the field and 8-of-16 shooting from three-point range. He was one of five Brooklyn players in double figures. As a team, the Nets shot 40.5% from three-point range and held Houston to 25.6% shooting from beyond the arc.

Brooklyn is currently in the eighth spot in the East and only 1.5 games behind the Cleveland Cavaliers for the seventh spot.
