What Do We Know About the Warriors?
The Warriors’ 141-134 overtime defeat to the Hawks on Saturday was not due to Stephen Curry’s lack of effort. The future Hall of Famer scored 60 points, including 10 three-pointers. He joined Kobe Bryant as the only players in NBA history to score at least 60 points at the age of 35 or older.
The defeat halted the Warriors’ two-game losing run as they go on their third game of a five-game road trip. Golden State has struggled away from home, finishing 8-12 this season. It has also been a problem for the Warriors in previous seasons, with an 11-30 record away from home compared to 33-8 at home last season. Golden State has been averaging 130.2 points per game over its previous five games, finishing 2-3 with all of its defeats coming by one point or in overtime. Andrew Wiggins (ankle) is uncertain, and his absence would change Golden State’s starting lineup.
What to know about the Nets.
The Nets defeated the 76ers, 136-121, on Saturday. Cameron Thomas had 40 points and shot 53.8% from the field in a strong performance. It was his sixth consecutive game with at least 25 points, and the 22-year-old guard is averaging 30.4 points per game over that span. After struggling offensively for the bulk of the previous five weeks, the Nets have gone 3-2 since Thomas’ return, and he is averaging 21.7 points per game this season.
Mikal Bridges leads Brooklyn in scoring with 21.9 points per game, and the team has averaged 134.3 points over its previous three matchups. During that time, the Nets have shot 51% from the field, third-best in the NBA, while ranking sixth in 3-point shooting (42.2%). Over that time, the Nets have averaged 21 fastbreak points per game, the second-highest in the NBA. Brooklyn will attempt to maintain its hot shooting against the Warriors, who have been known to do the same in prior seasons. Ben Simmons (back) is out after 14 minutes against the 76ers, as is Dorian Finney-Smith (ankle).
