Kevin Durant is out for revenge on his former team, and WynnBET has the Nets as 3-point favorites in this matchup.
Who’s going to put on a major performance in primetime? Who's likely to put up a dud?
I’ve got some bold predictions for Warriors-Nets that you’re not going to want to miss:
Bold Predictions for Warriors vs. Nets
- Draymond Green UNDER 7.5 Points (-110)
- LaMarcus Aldridge OVER 12.5 Points (-115)
- Kevin Durant OVER 29.5 Points (-130)
Draymond Green UNDER 7.5 Points (-110)
Draymond Green has scored nine and 11 points in his last two games, but I think he comes back to earth against a tough Nets team on Tuesday.
Green’s primary role on offense is to facilitate, and he had gone under this total in three games prior to his little scoring outburst, including six times in 13 games. My biggest concern with Green is that he attempts just six shots per game, so if he doesn’t hit at a high rate, he’s easily landing on the under.
LaMarcus Aldridge OVER 12.5 Points (-115)
Aldridge has been hot as of late, averaging 13.3 points per game on 51.7 percent shooting from the field and 63.6 percent from 3 over his last six games.
He could be a matchup nightmare for the Warriors against Kevon Looney or Draymond Green with his size and shooting ability. He’s averaging 12.8 points per game and has gone over this number in six of his last nine outings.
Kevin Durant OVER 29.5 Points (-130)
If you think Kevin Durant isn’t motivated to stick it to his former team, think again.
The Brooklyn Nets star has been liking tweets dishing a column that claimed that the Golden State Warriors won the breakup with him heading to Brooklyn.
Durant’s point total is at 29.5, and he’s scored 31, 38, 30, 28 and 33 points in his last five games while shooting 61.8 percent from the field and 52.0 percent from 3. Yes, you read that right.
I am always going to back Durant when he’s hot, and right now he’s shooting flamethrowers every single night. He’s the best scorer in the NBA, maybe even in NBA history (that’s a conversation for another day), and I think he goes nuclear in a showdown with Steph Curry tonight.
