Brooklyn Nets vs New Orleans Pelicans
Davis, who lost the last game with an illness, is probable and should start in this one. Hopefully, this 'illness' has nothing to do with the trade rumors.
The Nets are by far the worst team in the league when it comes to defending the Center position (points allowed from that position) with the Clippers being second. What those teams have in common? They both prefer not to use double-teams on big guys even when their opponents constantly target them with low-post moves.
Although the Nets have improved their points allowed from that position during their last 6 games, the truth is that they had much easier tasks but still in 3 of the most challenging of those they got crushed by Ayton (26p) and Pacers' duo Turner(15p) - Sabonis(17p). J.Allen just can't compete against Davis, the only time he faced him was last season where Davis (was playing as Center in that game) started the game with 13 points in the first Q and caused so much trouble and Allen had to be heavily benched and watch Davis finishing that game with 44 points.
Davis has a very easy task and when he does, he provides, so he is expected to go above 30 points today.
