New York Knicks vs. Brooklyn Nets Player Prop Picks
Which players will thrive in this Knicks vs. Nets contest?
SGP (-114 FD): Jalen Brunson 3+ 3PM & OG Anunoby 1+ 3PM
Brooklyn allows the sixth most open plus wide open three-point attempts per game, along with the fourth most above the break attempts per game (via NBA.com). 86 percent of Jalen Brunson’s three-point attempts come from this area, and he owns a 41.4 three-point percentage there. Additionally, the Nets give up the fifth largest off-the-dribble three-point frequency, which is definitely in his arsenal.
Since the OG Anunoby trade, Brunson is averaging eight attempts per game from deep. Based on that volume, he only needs to shoot 37.5 percent to knock down three threes. That’s highly feasible considering Brunson’s efficiency. Overall, he should rain down threes against a porous Nets defense that surrenders the most made threes per game to opposing point guards.
Meanwhile, Anunoby has produced 4.5 three-point attempts per game since joining New York. Across those eleven games, he only failed to hit a three-pointer one time. Like Brunson, he also sits in an excellent position to capitalize from behind the arc.
For the same game parlay to have a positive expected value, it needs to hit at least 53 percent of the time.
Jalen Brunson Top Points Scorer (-110 FD)
Due to Brooklyn’s guards getting caught on screens and Nic Claxton’s eagerness to protect the rim, the pull-up jumper is typically open. As a result, they surrender the seventh most midrange attempts per game, and Brunson ranks seventh across the league in these attempts per game. Not only will Brunson likely dominate from deep, but he should rack up points inside the arc too. Essentially, he could explode tonight against Brooklyn, who allows the third most points per game to point guards.
Meanwhile, power forwards average the fifth fewest points per game against the Nets. Their stable of forwards can somewhat reduce Julius Randle’s scoring, thus aiding Brunson.
On the other end, Mikal Bridges and Cam Thomas pose the biggest threats to Brunson. However, OG Anunoby is an elite defender that can slow down Bridges, while New York’s excellent paint defense can deter Thomas.
Overall, Brunson is best positioned to lead the game in points, and he has the scoring chops to accomplish the feat. Based on his odds, he needs to do so at least 52 percent of the time.
