Warriors vs Nets match prediction
Two of the best shooters in the history of basketball will face off and be the highlight of this game. However, it is likely that defense will largely decide the outcome of the game between the Golden State Warriors and the Brooklyn Nets.
The Warriors have gotten used to life without Klay Thompson and James Wiseman. In fact, they are doing very well this season without two of their best players.
Joe Harris’s injury will force the Brooklyn Nets to suddenly adjust their rotation, which would not be ideal against the Golden State Warriors defense. It is imperative that James Harden play his best game while the contributions of LaMarcus Aldridge and Patty Mills should be available. Otherwise, it will be a very long night for their offense.
The Golden State Warriors have been the best team this season because of their consistency. Durant and Curry will likely cancel each other out, so it will be up to the rest of the team to help their superstars. GSW’s lineup has been a bit better heading into this game.
The Golden State Warriors could beat the Brooklyn Nets by the best of margins.
