The Golden State Warriors look to keep rolling after winning seven of their last eight games. On the season, the Warriors are averaging 109.7 points on 47.7 percent shooting and are allowing 99.6 points on 42.6 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 23.5 points and 7.8 assists while Draymond Green is averaging 11.7 points and 8.2 rebounds. Marreese Speights is shooting 49.3 percent from the field and Harrison Barnes is grabbing 5.7 rebounds. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 46.9 percent from the field in their last five games and have yet to lose a game when allowing less than 100 points. The Warriors are 30-2 SU at home, which is the best home record in the league. Klay Thompson is out for this game with an ankle injury.
The Hawks are 20-7-1 ATS in their last 28 road games and 35-15-1 ATS in their last 51 games overall. The Warriors are 35-16-2 ATS in their last 53 home games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Hawks are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Golden State.
We're getting free points with the best team in the East, and the Warriors are missing Thompson. I like the value of the road team here.
