The team's interior defense has been instrumental in helping them win early in the season. They used the size of both Jarrett Allen and Evan Mobley to keep opposing teams from getting to the rim.

Since both Allen and Mobley have been out with injuries, the team has struggled to stop opponents from scoring at an average of 114 points per game.

With the team struggling defensively, the offense has had to carry the load for Darius Garland, who has been playing well in his last few games.



The good fortune of the Brooklyn Nets is starting to coincide with the NBA playoffs, which are just around the corner. They'll also benefit from facing a Cleveland team that is struggling on defense.

Over the last ten games, the Nets have averaged over 120 points per game while the Cleveland Cavaliers have allowed 114 points per contest. The team's chemistry with both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving has also helped.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be without their two rim protectors. The combination of Irving and Durant should be able to exploit the weaknesses of the Cleveland defense.
