Free Total Pick
That was a nasty loss on the road to Washington on Saturday, but we’re going to discard that based on the scheduling situation the Nets faced who were playing back to back in a 3-game in 4 nights with travel situation. They played the Bucks tough in their only game this season losing in extra play albeit at home. This will be the fourth game in six nights for both teams, but we feel that Brooklyn has more depth and will have the double motivation edge after losing the last in the series and first game after a blowout loss.
