Before making any Warriors vs. Nets picks, you NEED to check out the NBA predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned well over $9,000 in profit on its top-rated NBA picks over the past three-plus seasons. The model enters Week 5 of the 2021-22 NBA season up over $900 on all top-rated NBA picks this season. It’s also on a stunning 113-75 roll on top-rated NBA picks against the spread that dates back to last season. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns.
The model knows the Warriors have been the NBA’s best team this season. Golden State is 11-2 with an NBA-leading +12.7 net rating, and Stephen Curry is averaging 28.1 points per game as the league’s best outside threat. The Warriors lead the NBA in defensive rating, giving up only 99.3 points per 100 possessions, and Golden State lands in the top three on offense in scoring 112 points per 100 possessions. Ball movement is key to Golden State’s approach, with the Warriors leading the NBA in assists (29.5 per game) and assist percentage (70.6 percent) this season.
The model also knows the Nets are dangerous in their own right. Brooklyn led the NBA in offensive rating last season, and the duo of James Harden and Kevin Durant keys an explosive unit. The Nets lead the NBA in three-point shooting at 39.3 percent, and Brooklyn ranks in the top five in field goal percentage (47.0 percent) and assists (25.1 per game). Brooklyn is also a top-eight defensive team at the moment, giving up only 103.5 points per 100 possessions, and the Nets are holding opponents to just 31 percent shooting from three-point range.
