Why the Nets can cover

Brooklyn is more than ready to get back on the court after a long layoff. Add in the fact Harden will be back, and the Nets will pose big problems for Los Angeles. In 26 games this season, Harden is averaging 20.8 points, 7.9 rebounds, 9.6 assists and 1.4 steals per game. Harden has scored 20 or more points in three consecutive outings and 14 times on the year. He has reached 30 points three times, including a season-high 39 points at New Orleans on Nov. 12.

Also powering the Nets is point guard Patty Mills, who has played a team-high 30 games. He is averaging 13.6 points on the year, and 16.3 points over the past 10 games to go along with 2.5 assists and two rebounds. Mills has reached double-figure scoring in 10 consecutive games, including 23 points against Orlando last Saturday.

Why the Lakers can cover

Despite that, Brooklyn isn't a lock to cover the Nets vs. Lakers spread. That's because Los Angeles has a healthy LeBron James, still one of the top players in the league. James leads the Lakers in scoring at 26.8 points per game, and is also averaging 6.7 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 1.7 steals. He has been red hot of late, scoring 30 or more points in the last three games and six times in the past nine. James has an NBA-record double-digit scoring streak that has reached 1,061 games.

Point guard Russell Westbrook will give James plenty of help. He is also coming off a 30-point performance against San Antonio on Thursday, and registered a double-double with 22 points and 10 rebounds against Phoenix on Tuesday. For the season, Westbrook is averaging 19.8 points, eight assists, 7.8 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game. He has feasted on the Nets throughout his career, averaging 25.2 points, 9.4 assists and 7.6 rebounds in 22 games against Brooklyn.
