The Golden State Warriors will play their 50th game of the season tonight in a primetime matchup against the Brooklyn Nets. The game will be played at 5:30pm PT in San Francisco and can be watched on ABC.
Golden State has won five out of their last six games and is currently on a 4-game winning streak. Their most recent game was played on Thursday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves where they beat them with a score of 124-115. The Nets have lost their last three games including a Wednesday loss against the Denver Nuggets, 118-124. The Warriors and Nets last played on November 16, 2021 at Brooklyn in a matchup that resulted in a 117-99 Golden State victory.
The Warriors are starting to get back in a rhythm after beating Minnesota to extend their winning streak. The offense was clicking as the Splash Brothers put on a vintage performance combining for 11 made threes in the game. First time All-Star Andrew Wiggins proved his doubters wrong again by chipping in 19 points with an efficient 5-of-8 shooting from three.
Although the Warriors offense has been hit or miss during this homestand, the defense has been the team’s driving force. They must live up to that top-ranked defensive reputation against the Nets’ high-powered offense that ranks 2nd in offensive rating in the last 10 games. Brooklyn will be without Kevin Durant, but the dynamic duo of Kyrie Irving and James Harden is a danger to combust at any moment.
It should be a fun game. Enjoy the basketball Dub Nation. GO WARRIORS!!!
Warriors: Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, Otto Porter Jr., Kevon Looney
