The NBA is back in action today as the Golden State Warriors will clash with the Brooklyn Nets in the Big Apple.
The Warriors are heading into this game after a 125-117 win over the Wizards. And on the other side, Brooklyn was better than the Suns with a score of 119-107 at home.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors are one of the worst teams in the league this season. However, this team showed some characters as they scored an important win in the games against the Wizards. Yet, the Warriors are still in the cellar of the Pacific Division, 26.5 games behind the Lakers for the top spot. As for the Western Conference playoff picture, the team is last, 13.5 games behind the Grizzlies for the final playoff spot.
On the offensive of the game, the Warriors score an average of 106.5 points per game which is the 25th scoring record in the league. Also, the Warriors have 43.6 boards per game combined with 25.2 per contest. And on the defensive side of the game, Golden State is 22nd in the league with 114.4 conceded points a night.
Brooklyn Nets Form
The Nets are one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference this season. Moreover, they have won 4 of their last 6 games with their last win coming against the Suns at the Barclays Arena. Now, the Nets are fourth in the Atlantic Division, 13.5 games behind the Raptors for the top spot. As for the Eastern Conference standings, the Nets are seventh and held a 3.5-game edge over ninth-place Chicago. So, the team is still in the playoff race.
On the offensive side of the game, the Nets score an average of 110.1 points per game on the year. Also, Brooklyn has 47.8 boards combined with 23.8 assists per game. Additionally, the Nets are 19th in scoring defence as they allow 112.1 points per game this year.
The Warriors are having a bad season this year. And it seems that they do not have the quality to challenge for the postseason spots. On the other side, the Nets are on a quest to get to the playoff spots. They have the winning momentum and I expect another win for the New Yorkers.
