The Nets have dropped four of their past five games. It was an embarrassing Christmas Day performance for Brooklyn as they drop a 93-76 home decision to the Boston Celtics as a -2 ½ point favorite. Brooklyn is having trouble scoring. They have been held under 100 points in five straight and eight of their past nine games. The only chance right now for Brooklyn to win is if Joe Johnson, Deron Williams and Brook Lopez all have good games. A bad game by any one player and they have no shot right now. Their bench doesn’t produce offensively for the Nets. In the loss to Boston Joe Johnson had a bad shooting night making just 4 of 14 shots.
Milwaukee returns to the court after a bad 94-82 home defeat to the Cleveland Cavaliers as a -8 point favorite. It was a tough spot for the Bucks as they were playing their third game in four nights and the back end of a back to back. We have seen Milwaukee struggle offensively this season in back ends of back to backs scoring no more than 85 points in their past three spots. The Bucks have struggled for scoring as the team has not eclipsed 100 or more points in eight straight games. Milwaukee has a very low ceiling as their sport two of the most inefficient starting guards in basketball. Their leading scorer is Monta Ellis who averages 19 points a game and a 39% shooting percentage. Brandon Jennings is second on the team in scoring with 17 points a game and only 39% shooting.
