The Brooklyn Nets return home from a 3-game road swing to face the Golden State Warriors Sunday evening at Barclays Center. Here’s how to watch.

The Brooklyn Nets will have an early start Sunday evening at Barclays Center, as their matchup with the two-time defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors is set to tip off at 5 p.m. Eastern.

The Nets (2-3) come in off an emotional loss Friday night to the New Orleans Pelicans on the road, a game in which they surrendered nine unanswered points in the final 2:04 after leading most of the game.

Golden State (5-1) has won three in a row since an Oct. 19 loss at Denver, winning by an average of 23.3 points in those three matchups.

D’Angelo Russell scored 24 points for the Nets in New Orleans, but the last of his five turnovers came with 7.5 seconds left and gave the the Pelicans — trailing by one at the time — possession, which Jrue Holiday turned into a go-ahead jumper with two seconds remaining.

The Warriors opened a three-game Eastern trip on Friday night, hammering the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden 128-100 on the strength of a huge fourth quarter from Kevin Durant.

The former MVP scored 25 of his game-high 41 points in the fourth as the Warriors outscored New York 47-16, turning a three-point deficit entering the period into a walkaway victory.

Stephen Curry comes into Sunday’s game as the NBA’s second-leading scorer at 33.7 points per game, while Durant is fourth at 29.7 points a night. Curry also leads the league with 39 made 3-pointers, 11 of which came in a 51-point explosion Wednesday against the Washington Wizards.

For Brooklyn, Joe Harris is currently fifth in the NBA with a 58.3 percent mark from 3-point range and Jarrett Allen is fifth in the Association at 2.4 blocked shots per game.

Since the Nets entered the NBA in 1976, they are 36-52 against the Warriors and their last win against Golden State at home came March 2, 2015, in a 110-108 decision.

The Warriors have the longest winning streak in the series at nine straight, a stretch from Feb. 25, 1986, through April 6, 1990, and have currently won six in a row against Brooklyn.

For the Nets, they won five in a row against Golden State from Nov. 5, 1997, through Jan. 6, 2001, and matched that streak with five consecutive victories from March 29, 2003, through Jan. 26, 2005.

Since the team moved to Brooklyn in 2012, the Nets are just 4-10 in this matchup.

The most points a player has scored in the series came Nov. 17, 1984, when Purvis Short of the Warriors dropped in 59 points in a game the New Jersey Nets won at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Arena 131-114.

Hall of Famer Jason Kidd had the top scoring game by a Net against Golden State, finishing with 41 points in a 105-97 loss to the Warriors at The Arena in Oakland, Calif. (now Oracle Arena).

As the Brooklyn Nets, Joe Johnson‘s 32 points in a 109-102 loss at Barclays center on Dec. 7, 2012, is the high-water mark.
