On May 17, the Brooklyn Nets and the Cleveland Cavaliers will play during the regular season of the NBA. We offer you a forecast for this match.
In theory, Brooklyn could jump to the top spot in the Eastern Conference, but to be honest, it's doubtful that Philadelphia will take and lose its final game to Orlando. However, the Nets will definitely try to complete the minimum task, which is to beat Cleveland.
The Cavs don't have any tasks and can't have any. The team is now preparing to finish the regular season in thirteenth place in the Eastern Conference. "Cleveland" is definitely waiting for some kind of personnel revolution in the summer, but in the meantime, the team will have a difficult final match of the regular season against "Brooklyn".
