Check out the advanced box score from last night's Brooklyn Nets blowout here...
Blowout tonight? We think so. After a few days of rest following back-to-back losses, the 42-31 Brooklyn Nets travel to Cleveland to take on the 22-51 Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland, which means another chance to extend your streak in The BK Game Streak! The Cavaliers will be welcoming Kyrie Irving back into their lineup, while the Nets will be without Joe Johnson for the fifth straight game. The Nets won both matchups between these two teams this season, by 13 and 3 points.
The BK Game Streak is as simple as it sounds:
1. The contest relies on a standard betting line for each game. (Note: you must be logged into Facebook to play.) To make your prediction, select YES or NO to agree or disagree. For example: today's game is "Brooklyn will beat Cleveland by 10 or more points." If you think the Nets will win by 10 points or more, select "YES." If you think Brooklyn will win by 9 or fewer points, or Cleveland will pull off an upset, select "NO."
2. String together wins and try to get the longest streak of correct predictions before the end of the NBA regular season. Follow game results on the leaderboard on the right sidebar.
At the end of the season, we'll award three prizes to the players with the best three streaks: The Gold Net Trophy (longest streak) and a $200 Amazon Gift Card will be awarded to first place, the Silver Net Trophy (second-longest streak) and a $50 Amazon Gift Card to second place, and the Bronze Net Trophy (third-longest streak) $25 Amazon Gift Card and a Bronze Net Trophy to third place.

The Brooklyn Nets (3-2) take on the Cleveland Cavaliers (2-5) tonight at Barclays Center, as the Nets try to extend their winning streak beyond games against the Orlando Magic. Much like the Nets, the Cavaliers are no stranger to upheaval; after losing one #1 overall pick in LeBron James have followed it right up with another, sensational rookie point guard Kyrie Irving.
Joining me to talk tonight's contest and the team in general is Conrad Kaczmarek, Cavaliers blogger at Fear The Sword and regular phone operator at your local NBA Trollathon. Not many folks have the heart of stone needed to follow this Cavaliers team quite like Conrad does.
