NETSBrook Lopez C Sidelined Dec 21 foot Out for the 2013-14 season
The Heat opened up the series scoring 107 points shooting a ridiculous 56.8% from the field. Since Game 1 they have scored 94 and 90 points as the Nets reverted back to form. In game 3 Brooklyn scored 104 points shooting 52.8% from the field and an insane 60% from 3-point land. I don’t expect them to repeat those numbers tonight. Instead I look for them to put closer to their Game 1 and Game 2 average of 84.
Take the UNDER 188.
