The Warriors have been blowing out teams with great regularity and it starts with their first half play. They have been ahead by an average of more than 20 points over their last three games and have averaged 61.3 points per first half in those games, lay the points with Golden State on their first half.

Warriors vs. Nets 

The Warriors have a tough decision tonight. With a game tomorrow against the Pistons, the Warriors could very easily sit down some of their players tonight against the Nets. However, we haven’t heard anything on that right now, so as long as that doesn’t happen, Golden State’s first half NBA Odds are a bargain right now.

I may be late to the party on this one, but the Warriors have been excellent in their first halves lately. In their last three games, they have averaged being ahead by more than 20 points in all three of them, and if they take care of business in the first half against the Nets, they will almost certainly have a huge lead.

Brooklyn is allowing 56 points per first half this season to their opponents, while the Warriors are dropping about 60 points per first half. The Nets will surely be up for this game, but the Warriors should recognize that they have a game tomorrow against a struggling Pistons. That should mean a strong first half performance to end this game at half time essentially.
