After an intense victory over the Los Angeles Clippers, the Golden State Warriors move on to face the Brooklyn Nets in what should be a rather one-sided affair.

Stephen Curry heated up in a big way against the Clippers shooting, 60% from deep and 62% from the field overall as he netted 35 points, seven rebounds, five assists and four steals. In true Curry form, it seems like he's got his second wind right after the All-Star break and Brooklyn could be the next victim as the Chef looks to cook up another storm at Oracle.

Brooklyn has as many wins as the Warriors do losses. This is literally the best the NBA has to offer facing off against the worst. While the Warriors have won eight of their last two games the Brooklyn Nets have lost fifteen in a row and won only two road games in total this season.

Jeremy Lin's triumphant return didn't go as planned; after missing 26 games Lin made his comeback against the Denver Nuggets who enthusiastically celebrated his return by blowing Brooklyn out 129-109.

If the Warriors try to run Brooklyn off the court early this could be an easy night for the starters and some extra time for the youngsters on the bench. On the flip side if the Warriors come into this game with blasé attitude there is a slim chance the Nets could capitalize on the Warriors’ lackadaisical play.

As of now everyone on the roster is listed as active however I wouldn't be surprised to see Steve Kerr rest some players, especially after his recent comments about the future road trip:

“We have the most insane schedule I’ve ever seen in all my years in the NBA coming up."
