3* NBA *FRIDAY NIGHT FEAST*
New Jersey vs. Atlanta,
12/30/2011 19:30 EDT,
Score: 98 - 105
Point Spread: +11½/-105 New Jersey
3* NBA *FRIDAY NIGHT FEAST* on Nets +11.5
Atlanta, which has won its first two games handily and defeated the Nets by 36 Tuesday, won't give the Nets the respect they deserve tonight. You can bet New Jersey, which has been crushed in its last 2 games, will give everything it has to make sure it isn't embarrassed by the Hawks again.
This isn't a good spot for the Hawks, who are 0-12 ATS under in home games after playing a game as a home favorite under coach Drew. The Hawks have lost these 12 games by an average of 9.3 points.
The Nets aren't happy with the way they've played in their last 2 games. Rest assured, those poor performances will be all the motivation they need to keep this one within the number tonight.
