What to Know

The Brooklyn Nets will be playing at home against the Memphis Grizzlies at 7:30 p.m. ET on Monday at Barclays Center. Coming in fresh off a victory as the underdog, the Nets will stroll into this one as the favorite.

Winning is just a little bit easier when your three-point shooting is a whole 14.5% better than the opposition, a fact the Nets proved on Saturday. They came out on top against Atlanta by a score of 114-102. The win came about thanks to a strong surge starting at the 1:47 mark of the first quarter, when the Nets were facing a 28-15 deficit.

The Nets can attribute much of their success to Mikal Bridges, who scored 38 points along with five rebounds and two steals.

Meanwhile, the Grizzlies' recent rough patch got a bit rougher on Saturday after their fifth straight loss. They took a 107-100 hit to the loss column at the hands of Portland.
