Los Angeles @ Brooklyn

Current Records: Los Angeles 23-24; Brooklyn 29-17

What to Know

The Brooklyn Nets will be returning home after a four-game road trip. They will take on the Los Angeles Lakers at 7:30 p.m. ET Tuesday at Barclays Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'

Brooklyn received a tough blow on Sunday as they fell 136-125 to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The losing side was boosted by point guard Kyrie Irving, who had 30 points and five assists in addition to six boards.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap on Sunday as they fell 113-107 to the Miami Heat. The Lakers were down 89-70 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Los Angeles' loss came about despite a quality game from small forward LeBron James, who posted a double-double on 33 points and 11 rebounds.

Brooklyn is expected to lose this next one by 3. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn't have high expectations for them since the squad is 0-2 ATS when expected to lose.

The losses put Brooklyn at 29-17 and Los Angeles at 23-24. Two defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Nets have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 44%, which places them fourth in the league. Less enviably, the Lakers are stumbling into the game with the fourth most points allowed per game in the league, having given up 112.7 on average.
