What to Know
This Saturday, the Brooklyn Nets are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 117.48 points per game. They will take on the Golden State Warriors at 8:30 p.m. ET this past Saturday at Chase Center after having had a few days off. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.
The Nets beat the Indiana Pacers 104-94 this past Wednesday. The squad ran away with 62 points in the first half and mostly just sat on those in the second to pick up the victory. It was another big night for Brooklyn’s point guard Kyrie Irving, who had 35 points and eight assists.
Meanwhile, Golden State didn’t have too much breathing room in their contest with the Orlando Magic this past Thursday, but they still walked away with a 111-105 win. Golden State’s point guard Stephen Curry did his thing and shot 10-for-19 from beyond the arc and finished with 40 points, five assists and eight rebounds. Chef Curry’s night made it four games in a row in which he has scored at least 32 points.
Brooklyn is the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are only 6-14 against the spread when favored.
Brooklyn took their matchup against the Warriors in the teams’ previous meeting last December by a conclusive 125-99 score. Will the Nets repeat their success, or does Golden State have a better game plan this time around? We’ll find out soon enough.
