Visitors to scorch nets at Barclays Center

Visitors poised to scorch nets at Barclays Center

The Nets have a hard time stopping anyone in the NBA. So tonight’s visit from Golden State must feel like receiving the biggest lump of coal imaginable.

Kenny Atkinson’s club will try to contain the most lethal offensive attack going at 7:30 p.m. ET. Online sports book gives the Warriors odds of -2500 to emerge victorious. Conversely, Brooklyn represents a +1300 underdog.

Bet on This Evening's Action

Defensive woes provide the primary reason why the Nets (7-20) occupy the bottom of the standings. They allow a league-worst 114.6 points per game. Foes are shooting 46 percent from the field against Brooklyn, converting an unusually high number of 3-pointers.

Needless to say, expect the Dubs (25-4) to tickle the twine shortly. Steve Kerr’s crew is coming off a 104-74 dismantling of Utah. Stephen Curry canned four treys in that contest, pushing his season total to 110.

Candidly, we don’t anticipate seeing much of No. 30 – or any of his star teammates – once the second half arrives. Brooklyn’s simply too inconsistent from the perimeter to bank on an incredibly high-scoring affair, either. Look for a final in the low 220s.
