The Brooklyn Nets, the team in the NBA with the best winning streak right now, hosted the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday. The Nets, a team that’s really on the rise in the rankings, won the game in a contest that was a total one-sided blowout. They put up a large double-digit margin of victory in the uncompetitive affair, winning by 30 points. The final score was Golden State 113, and Brooklyn 143.

Warriors @ Nets Wednesday: James Wiseman scores 30

This was a game that we previewed in our picks section and, in this case, we had the game bang on. We looked past the popular markets and instead focused on an adjusted spread of -20.5 for Brooklyn to cover. This hit at odds of +285 for our readers as Brooklyn brushed aside an injury-riddled Warriors team.

With the loss, the Warriors are now 15-18 on the season. The top scorer in the game was James Wiseman, a player that is a little odd to see as a top scorer. But the Warriors played without Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Andrew Wiggins. Accordingly, someone was going to get a lot of unexpected shooting opportunities. Wiseman had an impressive 30 points in the game coming off of the bench.

Meanwhile, the Nets improved to 20-12 with the 30-point victory. This is a team that should be relevant to bettors because they are now just two games back of the Boston Celtics in the Atlanta Division.

Brooklyn’s slow start to the season is ancient history and the Celtics have actually hit a surprise slump. Boston, a team we moved from first to fourth in our NBA power rankings, lost again on Wednesday night. There could be a situation developing in the Atlantic where Brooklyn moves to the top of the standings soon.
