Brooklyn vs. Cleveland: The Nets will Clinch a Playoff Spot


Brooklyn vs. Cleveland in the first game of the 2022 NBA play-in at Barclays Center. Who will win to secure the 7th seed in the East in the playoffs? Let’s place a few wagers at once.

The trade of James Harden to Philadelphia was the most significant regular-season development for the Nets. The defenseman known as “The Beard” was never able to find his place on the New York team and only served to stymie the formation of proper chemistry. Brooklyn became more stable without Harden, but with Kyrie Irving and, of course, Kevin Durant back on the court.

Brooklyn completed the customary season with four successive triumphs. During that time, the Nets crushed the Cleveland Cavaliers, among others. This achievement empowered Steve Nash’s group to assume control over the seventh spot in the meeting and host the Cavaliers in the main round of the play-in on their home court.

As the season progressed, the Cavaliers had been in the top six of the Eastern Conference for a long time and were in contention for a direct playoff spot. However, they had a very disappointing regular season, losing 7 of their last 10 games. As a result of this, J.B. Bickerstaff’s team, which is currently ranked eighth in the East, will have to make their way to the playoffs through the playoffs. A win over the Nets would secure the Cavs the 7th seed. If Cleveland loses in New York, it will face the winner of the tie between Atlanta and Charlotte for the eighth seed.

In the last a long time of the standard season, Brooklyn exhibited what they are able to do. Steve Nash’s group dominated key matches and completed seventh in the meeting, however they could complete as low as 10th. The game against Cleveland will in all likelihood affirm Brooklyn’s excellent. The Cavs’ record dropped emphatically toward the finish of the customary season however they made the end of the season games because of their solid play in the principal half of the time.

Brooklyn is expected to win comfortably.

  • Handicap 1 (-8.5) for 1.76;
  • Total Over 225.5 for 1.77;
  • Kevin Durant Total Points Over (39.5) for 4.28.
