These teams have faced each other only once so far this regular season. Dated December 26, 2022, the New Yorkers won 125-117. Of course, the architects of the triumph were Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, already out of the team. That night, both players contributed 32 units each. Will the homeowners be able to make up for their absences?

- Where: Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York
- When: Tuesday, March 21, 2023, 6:30 PM E.T.
Betting on the Cleveland Cavaliers
- Regular Season Record: 45-28
The squad coached by J. B. Bickerstaff is in fourth place in the Eastern Conference. On this occasion, it will be facing one of his immediate pursuers, which is why this confrontation is so important.
The Cavs are coming off a 117-94 win over the Washington Wizards. As in his past performances, Darius Garland once again shined with a 24-unit contribution and nine assists, a challenge in which Cleveland never trailed throughout the 48 minutes.
Despite their superb season, the visitors have lost two of their last five games. Although it is the second-best team at home, the situation seems to be different on the road. On the road, the numbers are not at all favorable: in 36 games away from their home stadium, Donovan Mitchell and company have lost 20 times.
Betting on the Brooklyn Nets
- Regular Season Record: 39-31
With the Miami Heat just two games away, the Nets know they must win tonight if they want to avoid the Play-In. Even more so considering that they have two adverse results. They come into this game after suffering a tough 101-96 setback at the hands of the Sacramento Kings. This performance is especially worrisome due to the low scoring game, a deficit that has been carried over from two games ago if we add the 107-121 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. And those are records that invite to bet on a low scoring of the home team in this Cavaliers vs Nets game.
As hosts, the Brooklyn Nets own a 19-13 record, the seventh best in its division, which is a promising statistic considering the weaknesses of its rival away from the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. However, of their last five challenges in front of their home fans, the New Yorkers have lost on three occasions.
Although both teams have enough tools to win the longed-for victory, the visitors stand out in an area that could make the difference. Cleveland is credited with the best defense in the league, conceding just 106.6 points per game.
If we add to this the scoring crisis of the New Yorkers, at JefeBet we predict a success for the visitors in this long-awaited Cavaliers vs Nets game.
Prediction: Cleveland Cavaliers Moneyline and Under (CLE 112-108 BRO).
