Both teams have high hopes for the upcoming season, but only one team can win. Who will come out on top in this matchup?
However, the Lions will make a comeback in the second half and ultimately win the game by a few points.
Who Will Win the Game
How Many Points Will Be Scored
Generally speaking, NBA games tend to see around 200 points scored in total. This number has been increasing in recent years however, due in large part to the league’s efforts to increase scoring. In the 2018-19 season for example, the average game saw 218.6 points scored – a new all-time record.
Of course, not every game is going to hit this 200-point mark – there will be some higher scoring affairs and some lower scoring ones. But if we look at all games played over an entire season, we can get a pretty good idea of how many points will likely be scored overall.
What Players Will Have a Big Impact on the Game
Giannis Antetokounmpo had a historic season last year, becoming the first player in NBA history to finish in the top 20 in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks. He was also named MVP after leading the Milwaukee Bucks to the best record in the league. The Greek Freak is only getting better and he should be even more dominant this season.
James Harden is coming off his second consecutive MVP season and he shows no signs of slowing down. The Beard averaged an unbelievable 36 points per game last season while also dishing out 7.5 assists per game. He’s one of the most lethal scorers in NBA history and he should continue to put up big numbers this season.
Kyrie Irving had a bit of an up-and-down 2018-19 campaign but he still managed to average 23.8 points per game while shooting 49 percent from the field and 40 percent from three-point range. Irving is one of the best pure scorers in the league and he has shown that he can take over games when needed. The Nets will be relying heavily on him this season as they try to make a push for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Jets Vs Browns Predictions
Here are my predictions for this matchup: The Jets offense has struggled mightily so far this season, ranking near the bottom of the league in most statistical categories. They will have their work cut out for them against a Browns defense that is allowing just 18 points per game.
I expect the Jets to struggle once again on offense, and they will ultimately fall to the Browns by a score of 24-10.
