Meanwhile, it was all tied up 57-57 at halftime, but the Dubs were not quite the Charlotte Hornets’ equal in the second half when they met on Sunday.

Despite the defeat, the Dubs had strong showings from small forward Andrew Wiggins, who had 28 points along with six rebounds, and point guard Stephen Curry, who dropped a double-double on 24 points and ten dimes along with six rebounds.
Barring any buzzer beaters, the Nets are expected to win a tight contest. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with Brooklyn, who are 7-7 against the spread.
Brooklyn’s victory lifted them to 10-4 while Golden State’s loss dropped them down to 11-2. We’ll see if Brooklyn can repeat their recent success or if Golden State bounces back and reverse their fortune.
