Advice and prediction

Even if the Nets and Hawks both score 20 fewer points apiece than they did on Wednesday, they would hit the over set for Friday. It’s far and away the best bet in this matchup.

As much as Durant has scored 29 or more points in each of his last three games, taking the over on either his and Irving’s scoring props are tough. Keep in mind, we also saw others Nets step up on Wednesday. That’ll probably have to happen again if Atlanta’s offense maintains.

If you’re looking to take the over on a Nets player scoring prop, go with Joe Harris. He and LeVert need to be in double figures for Brooklyn to stick with the Hawks — BetMGM isn’t offering a prop on LeVert on scoring total Friday.

Prediction: Nets 133, Hawks 129
