The Golden State Warriors and the Brooklyn Nets collide at the Barclays Center on Tuesday night.
The Golden State Warriors have been in red-hot form as they’ve won 11 of their first 13 games overall, but they will be looking to bounce back in this one after having their seven-game win streak snapped by the Hornets in a 106-102 road loss on Sunday. Andrew Wiggins led the team with 28 points on 12 of 19 shooting, Stephen Curry tallied 24 points with 10 assists and three steals while Jordan Poole chipped in with 13 points. As a team, the Warriors shot just 42 percent from the field and nine of 39 from the 3-point line as they managed to hang in the contest despite their poor shooting, only to go ice-cold when it mattered most as they scored just four points in the final 6:09 to allow the Hornets to steal the game late. Curry shot just seven of 22 from the field and three of 13 from the 3-point line while Damion Lee finished with just four points on two of 10 shooting.
Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets have been on a tear lately as they’ve won eight of their past nine games and they will be gunning for a fourth straight victory after blowing past the Thunder in a 120-96 road win on Sunday. Kevin Durant led the team wit 33 points, eight rebounds and four assists, Patty Mills drained nine 3-pointers on his way to 29 points off the bench while James Harden tallied 16 points with 13 assists and three steals. As a team, the Nets shot 50 percent from the field and 18 of 43 from the 3-point line as they poured in 61 points in the first half to take the early double-digit lead, before making it a complete blowout in the second half behind the hot hand of Mills who drained a career-high nine 3-pointers.
Looking at the betting trends, the Warriors are 5-0 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record, 6-1 ATS in their last seven games as an underdog and 16-5-1 ATS in their last 22 games overall. The Nets are 0-4 ATS in their last four games against a team above .600, 15-5 ATS in their last 20 home games and 13-4 ATS in their last 17 games as a home favorite.
Head to head, the under is 7-2 in the last nine meetings overall, the Warriors are 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings in Brooklyn and the Warriors are 1-7 ATS in the last eight meetings overall.
Two of the hottest teams in the league collide as the Warriors visit the Nets at the Barclays Center. The Warriors were on top of the world during their seven-game win streak, but a cold shooting night cost them against the Hornets on Sunday. The Nets have scored at least 120 points in each of their last three wins and they will finally be returning home after winning five games during their six-game road trip. It’s tempting to go with the road team, but the Warriors are only 1-7 ATS in the last eight meetings overall and the Nets looked so much more dangerous on Sunday with Mills snapping out of his shooting slump. You can make an argument for either side here, but I'm sticking with Durant and the Nets to get the win at home.
