The Nets (7-20) take on the NBA's best Golden State Warriors (25-4) in Brooklyn on Thursday.
According to STATS:
- Golden State swept a pair of games from the Nets last season, improving to 12-5 in the series since January 2008. The all-time series is split at 21 wins apiece when the Nets have hosted the Warriors.
- The Warriors have now made at least one three-pointer in each of their last 1000 games, dating back to April 11, 2004. The only team with a longer active streak is Phoenix, at 1005 consecutive games.
- The Nets lost all three games on their road trip that concluded on Tuesday, falling to 1-13 away from home this season. However, Brooklyn has won its last two home games and could move to .500 at Barclays Center (6-7) for the season overall with a victory on Thursday.
- Draymond Green contributed 15 points, 11 rebounds and five steals on Tuesday, which was his fourth game with at least 15, 10 and five, respectively, since 2015-16. No other player in the league has produced more than two such games over the past two seasons (Giannis Antetokounmpo and DeMarcus Cousins).
- Rondae Hollis-Jefferson led the Nets with 19 points off the bench on Tuesday. He's now shooting .460 from the field as a reserve, which is 131 points higher than his rate as a starter (.329).
- Justin Hamilton returned to action after missing five games by immediately leading the Nets with 11 rebounds on Tuesday. While those 11 rebounds represented a career high, his four assists were a season best.
