There will be an all-star contest taking place in the NBA during the early hours of Wednesday morning, with the Brooklyn Nets facing off against the Golden State Warriors (Nets 4/6, Warriors 5/4 – Money Line).
The Nets, led by superstar duo James Harden and Kevin Durant, have gone 8-2 across their last 10 games to move top of the Atlantic Division and fourth in the Eastern Conference standings.
However, their good form will certainly be put to the test against a Warriors team that boasts the best record in the NBA so far this season at 11-2, although one of those defeats did come in the Western Conference leaders’ last game at the Charlotte Hornets.
That defeat snapped a seven-game winning streak for the Warriors, but Steph Curry and Co will be hoping they can return to winning ways at the Barclays Center against a Nets team that have won the last three meetings between the two in-form teams.
That is one of three games that will be taking place in the NBA overnight, including the clash between the out-of-form Utah Jazz and Philadelphia 76ers at the Vivint Arena (Jazz 2/9, 76ers 10/3 – Money Line).
Both teams have seen their respective impressive starts to the season derailed over recent weeks, with the Jazz having lost four of their last five, while it is four defeats on the bounce for the 76ers.
Wins have also been hard to come by for San Antonio Spurs of late – they hold a 2-5 record in November – with Gregg Popovich’s team set to visit a Los Angeles Clippers outfit that saw their own seven-game winning run ended by Chicago Bulls last time out (Clippers 3/10, Spurs 5/2 – Money Line).
Speaking of the Bulls, they made it an LA double during the early hours of Tuesday morning, as a day on from their victory over the Clippers they dispatched the Los Angeles Lakers 121-103.
DeMar DeRozan and Lonzo Ball both struck season-high totals for the Bulls, who claimed their first win in nine against the Lakers who were once again without the injured LeBron James.
Other notable results overnight included Phoenix Suns making it nine wins on the bounce after they disposed of Minnesota Timberwolves 99-96, while Kristaps Porzingis and Luka Doncic combined for 52 points as the Dallas Mavericks came from 13 points down in the third quarter to beat Denver Nuggets 111-101.
