NBA Look Ahead: Saturday, Jan 29, 2022, 7:30pm CT
More NBA action is on the way as we head towards the All-Star break. Both conferences have been shaken up by injuries, and now we have new leaders.
The Chicago Bulls lost their top spot in the Eastern Conference and gave it to the Brooklyn Nets. Phoenix now has a three-game lead on the Warriors in the Western Conference. Let’s check out the games we’ll cover for this week.
We’ll be starting our look ahead with a matchup between the Nets and the Warriors.
Brooklyn Nets at Golden State Warriors, Sat Jan 29, 2022, 7:30pm CT
We’ll say that this game will likely be the most entertaining game of the entire week. The Brooklyn Nets lead the Eastern Conference, and the Warriors are No.2 in the West.
In what could potentially be a preview of the NBA Finals, we’ll see Stephen Curry against James Harden. Unfortunately for the Brooklyn Nets, their injury list continues to grow.
The Warriors are dealing with fewer injuries and, as we said, are incredible at home. Between these two teams, the Warriors are the better bet here. Kyrie Irving might not be cleared to play in this one, dealing another blow to the Nets.
Taking the Warriors is a much safer bet here. They’ve been great against the spread all year and have a slight advantage on the Nets.
This is a big week for the Warriors to possibly move up in the Western Conference. Looking forward to this matchup this weekend.
