That being said, the Nets should remain a strong defensive team even without Kyrie. Brooklyn allows just 112. 3 PPG – a top-ten mark in the NBA. Additionally, the Nets are especially strong at defending the paint. Brooklyn allows the lowest two-point percentage in the NBA in addition to ranking in the top ten in points in the paint allowed.

2 RPG, and 4. 0 APG. However, he has been red-hot following a slow start to the season. Kawhi is coming off a month-long stretch where he averaged 27. 7 PPG on 55% shooting. He was especially aggressive attacking the rim in January, averaging six free throw attempts per game. Additionally, Leonard is coming off his best shooting month of the season as he shot 45% from three during January.
Coming off a 35-point outing against the Knicks, expect Kawhi to attack early and often against a depleted Brooklyn roster. The X-factor for LA is wing Norman Powell. A constant three-and-D guy, Powell has been red-hot of late. Across his last five games, Powell averaged 19. 6 PPG while shooting 38% from beyond the arc. He remains a strong defender as well and his floor spacing should open up plenty of driving lanes for George and Leonard.

Following a league-changing trade in which the Nets dealt away Kyrie Irving, it’s unclear who will be suiting up for the Nets tonight.
