The Golden State Warriors travel to the Harris Bradley Center to battle the Milwaukee Bucks tonight.
The Golden State Warriors have won 14 of their last 15 games and will be looking to extend their eight-game win streak after crushing the Grizzlies by 107-84 last night. Stephen Curry dominated the game with 38 points and 10 assists with eight threes while Klay Thompson added 28 points with six threes of his own as the Warriors embarrassed the Grizzlies on their home court. The first half provided a close contest between the teams but coming out of the halftime break, the Warriors switched on defensively and completely broke open the game with a 31-16 third quarter to gain a double digit lead that they would not relinquish. With the win, Golden State improved to 59-13 on the season and 25-11 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks have recovered from a six-game losing streak with a second straight win, beating the Pacers by 111-107 on Thursday. Ersan Ilyasova had a monster game of 34 points on 12 of 14 shooting including five of six from the three point line but he also had plenty of support as all five starters finished in double digits in scoring. As a team, the Bucks absolutely flew out of the gates to an early lead of 34-15 after the first quarter, but were made to fight right till the end as the Pacers chipped away at the lead with a flurry of threes. In the end, Milwaukee was able to hold on for the lead to improve to 36-36 on the season and 21-14 on the road.
In ATS trends, the Warriors are 5-0 ATS in their last five games overall and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 road games, while the Bucks are 1-4 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games against the Western Conference.
Head to head, the Warriors are 4-1-1 ATS in the last six meetings in Milwaukee but just 1-7-1 ATS in the last nine meetings overall.
There's a real risk that coach Kerr will opt to rest some of his key players in this game, so be sure to double check the lineups before tipoff. However, if I had to choose right now, I'd definitely side with the Warriors and hope that they only rest a couple of players.
