Nets vs. Spurs Best Player Props & Picks
Kyrie Irving Under 30.5 Points
It’s taking the Nets some time to adjust to the absence of Kevin Durant. They’re 0-2 since KD went down, including a home loss to the Thunder. Irving is shooting and scoring better on the road this season, but his early response to life sans Durant hasn’t been promising.
He’s 16-for-44 (36.4%) over his last two games and only hit the Over once across his last 10 contests. The Spurs feature the league’s worst defense, but we’re going to lean Under in this spot. Irving can still play really well and fall short of 31 points.
Ben Simmons Over 15.5 Rebounds + Assists
The Nets do not have much of a choice but to put Simmons in positions to affect the game, both offensively and defensively. While that may not include putting the ball in the basket – he scored zero points against Boston on Thursday – it certainly means facilitating and hitting the glass.
He combined for 22 rebounds-plus-assists his last time out. Reaching 16 against the Spurs’ last-ranked defense is a hurdle he’s more than capable of clearing. The Nets are favored by 5.5 with a total of 233.
Tre Jones Over 15.5 Points
On paper, Keldon Johnson is the Spurs’ primary scorer. However, it’s Jones, not Johnson, who has seen his shot attempts increase in the wake of Devin Vassell’s injury. Jones is averaging 19.1 points on 15.7 shots over his last seven.
Not only is Jones shooting with more volume, but he’s shooting with efficiency too – 49.1% from the field. He doesn’t shoot much or particularly well from three, but he’s accurate from the charity stripe, and will be able to chip in from the line.
Keldon Johnson Under 2.5 Threes
Johnson is only averaging 14.7 shots per game since the calendar flipped to 2023. He’s coming off a 25-shot night, so maybe he’s breaking out of his malaise, but we’re not leaning into that development just yet.
Johnson isn’t efficient from three-point land, shooting 23.5% from distance over his last six and 33.8% overall. While opponents convert at a decent clip against the Nets, Brooklyn does a decent job of limiting the volume of three-point attempts they allow.
