The Golden State Warriors invade the Barclays Center to battle the Brooklyn Nets tonight.
The Warriors extended their unbeaten start to the season with their 21st win last night, beating the Raptors by 112-109 in a thriller. Stephen Curry was ridiculous once again, leading the team with a game-high 44 points on 14 of 24 shooting including nine of 16 from the 3-point line. Klay Thompson made six 3-pointers en route to 26 points while Draymond Green chipped in with 16 points, nine rebounds and six assists as the Warriors came out on top of a Raptors team who really took it to them, especially in the second half where they poured on 60 points. Golden State is now 21-0 on the season and 11-0 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Nets have lost five of their last eight games and are coming into this one fresh off a 108-91 beating thanks to the Knicks. Brook Lopez scored a team-high 21 points while Thaddeus Young added 18, but the game was over before it really began as the Knicks stormed out of the gates to lead by 42-21 points at the end of the first quarter and never gave the Nets a sniff. The Nets actually weren't too bad from the second quarter onwards, but the damage done in the first quarter was too much to overcome. With the loss, Brooklyn falls to 5-14 on the season and 1-11 on the road.
In ATS trends, the Warriors are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games overall and 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games, while the Nets are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games overall.
Head to head, the Warriors are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings overall and 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Brooklyn.
Looking at the ATS trends, the Nets look to be the better team to bet on, but there's no way I'm backing against Curry and the red-hot Warriors the way they're playing.
