Who will win Nets vs Cavaliers?


The Cavs have made significant inroads this season after dropping 50 games in the 2020/2021 campaign. Their path to the play-ins has been less of a talking point than that of Brooklyn who were tipped to sit up among the top echelon in the Eastern Conference this year.

The Nets have had personnel issues this season but indeed so have the Cavs with a lengthy injury list for a lot of this campaign.

Much rests on whether Ben Simmons will appear after a debilitating back issue, and that could sway the ledger.

We feel the Nets have enough talent to threaten the top 6, and they'll get that chance by winning this match.
