Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Golden State Warriors vs Brooklyn Nets
The Nets will welcome the Warriors to Barclays Center as they are coming off a comeback lost against the Pelicans while the Warriors are riding a three-game winning streak. Game tips off at 5:00 PM ET.
Golden State Warriors's Latest Performance :
The Warriors are coming off back-to-back dominating wins against the Wizards and the Knicks although it is still very early in the season the Warriors look like a mid-season team with the way they are playing. Curry had 51 against the Wizards and Kevin Durant had 41 including 25 points in the fourth quarter. Once these two players get it going offensively the Warriors are a very hard team to beat. Klay Thompson’s struggles continued he had only 12 points in his last outing shooting only 6-of-18. Playing with the Warriors would allow you to have a bad shooting night like Klay did because they have two more scorers that can create their own shot and Klay won’t be needed as much right now on offense. It’s just a matter of time before one of the NBA’s best shooters gets back into a rhythm. Playing against the Nets should be another easy game for the Warriors as they are looking to win four games in a row.
Brooklyn Nets 's Latest Performance :
The Nets must learn how to close out games, in their last outing they had the game in the bag but allowed the Pelicans to crawl back and take the game at the buzzer. It was great to see the Nets competing with a team like the Pelicans but anytime you got a chance to close a good team out you have to do it. All Brooklyn had to do in the final minute was just hold onto the basketball instead, the Nets committed three turnovers in the final 56.5 seconds and their only shot was a rushed 3-pointer late in the shot clock as the Pelicans scored the final seven points of the game. It was the best defensive effort by the Nets who held the Pelicans to only 44 percent shooting but failed to close it out. Playing against the Warriors the Nets can’t afford any kind of mistakes with the way the Warriors are playing. All eyes will be on D-Low as he will get the opportunity to contain Stephen Curry in this game.

Against The Spread Selection: Golden State Warriors -10
My reason for the pick :
I am going with the Warriors in this game despite the spread being so high but I do believe that the Warriors will be able to win big on the road against the Nets. Curry and Durant are coming off impressive shooting performance and they won’t be cooling down anytime soon. Once Klay gets his shot back it is over no one is beating the Warriors. For the Nets, it will be tough for them to recover from their comeback lost against the Pelicans as they are about to lose at home big against the Warriors.
