The Nets are coming off a tough 113-109 loss to the Pistons that dropped them to 2-4 on the season. As a team, Brooklyn shot 46.2 percent from the field in that game, but the backcourt really struggled with Kyrie Irving hitting just 8 of 21 from the field and Caris LeVert shooting just 6 of 17. On the season, Irving is averaging 30.5 points and 7.5 assists per game, but he's still looking for consistent help. LeVert is second on the team in scoring (18.8 ppg), while no other player is averaging more than 5.0 assists per game.
Meanwhile, New Orleans received a tough blow as it fell 115-104 to Oklahoma City in its last outing to move to 1-5 on the season. The Pelicans got a scare when Brandon Ingram took a hit to the head and left the game, but he appears set to play on Monday. Power forward Derrick Favors (knee), meanwhile, is questionable as New Orleans is also without No. 1 overall pick Zion Williamson, who remains on the shelf with a knee injury.
A couple numbers to keep in mind for this matchup: The Nets come into the contest boasting the third most points per game in the league at 118.7. The Pelicans, meanwhile, are second worst in the league in points allowed per game, with 122.5 on average.
So who wins Nets vs. Pelicans? And which side of the spread hits over 50 percent of the time? Visit SportsLine now to find out which side of the spread you need to jump on Monday, all from the model that has crushed its NBA picks, and find out.
