What to Know

The Brooklyn Nets will take on the Phoenix Suns at 10 p.m. ET Tuesday at Footprint Center after having had a few days off. Phoenix should still be riding high after a victory, while the Nets will be looking to get back in the win column.

Brooklyn was close but no cigar this past Saturday as they fell 110-106 to the Golden State Warriors. Despite the defeat, Brooklyn got a solid performance out of point guard Kyrie Irving, who had 32 points and seven assists along with seven boards.

Speaking of close games: even if it wasn’t a dominant performance, Phoenix beat the San Antonio Spurs 115-110 on Sunday. Phoenix’s point guard Chris Paul did his thing and almost posted a triple-double on 20 points, 19 dimes, and eight rebounds.

The Nets are expected to lose this next one by 7.5. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn’t have high expectations for them since the team is 1-4 ATS when expected to lose.

Brooklyn is now 29-20 while the Suns sit at 40-9. A couple offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Brooklyn enters the matchup with a 47.10% field goal percentage, good for third best in the league. But Phoenix is even better: they rank first in the league when it comes to field goal percentage, with 47.70% on the season. This one is shaping up to be an exciting offensive shootout.
