Total Annihilation Top - Rickenbach 10* Top Play UNDER the total in Brooklyn Nets vs Utah Jazz @ 7:35 ET Monday - Look for this to be a hard-fought, ugly, low-scoring game. Utah has revenge from a home loss to Brooklyn last spring in the most recent meeting between these teams. The Jazz also are expected to be without point guard George Hill for this game and their depth at point guard was already being tested with Dante Exum still out. Recent Utah games have been very methodical and played at a very slow pace. The under is 9-2 in the last 11 Jazz games and they've averaged a ridiculously low 73 field goal attempts per game in their last 10 games. Of course they're taking on a Nets team that gives up a ton of points and is one of the worst defenses in the league so they should be fine, right? Not in this case. Brooklyn held a players only meeting after their embarrassing road loss at Washington and I look for a much stronger effort on the defensive end as a result tonight. Also impacting the total in this game is the fact that Jeremy Lin is still out and the Nets scored 120 with him in the lineup when they beat Charlotte but they've since lost back to back games without him and have averaged just 97 points per game without him. Utah is unlikely to allow the Nets to get that many here. The Jazz have held have of their last 12 opponents to 94 points or less and are holding teams to just 42.9% from the field this season. The under is 13-5 in Jazz games when Utah enters on a winning streak of 3 games or more. 3 of the last 4 meetings between these teams have stayed under the total. The under is 6-1 in the Nets last 7 games. 10* UNDER the total in Brooklyn
