The Denver Nuggets travel to the Oracle Arena to battle the Golden State Warriors tonight.
The Denver Nuggets have lost six of their last eight games but will be looking to close out their season on a high note after falling to the Clippers by 110-103 on Monday. WIlson Chandler made six threes en route to a team-high 32 points, Kenneth Faried added 19 points and 17 rebounds while Randy Foye added 16 points and eight assists but the Nuggets just couldn't get over the hump against the red-hot Clippers. In fact, despite shooting just 37.6 percent from the field as a team, the Nuggets were actually on top of the Clippers until LA closed the game on a 20-7 run in the last 3:25 of the game.

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors continued their terrific season with yet another impressive win, this time by 111-107 over the Grizzlies on Monday. Stephen Curry had a quiet game of 15 points and eight assists but that didn't matter because this game was all about Klay Thompson who exploded for 42 points for the game and 26 points in the second quarter. In fact, Thompson made eight of his 10 three point shots to give the Warriors a 32-point lead before coach Kerr decided to rest all his starters. The Grizzlies did make the game interesting right at the end with a 41-18 fourth quarter effort, but the Warriors' reserves were able to escape with a win by the skin of their teeth.
In ATS trends, the Nuggets are 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games against a team with a winning record and 7-16 ATS in their last 23 games following a loss, while the Warriors are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games against a team with a losing record and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall.
Head to head, the Nuggets are 3-9 ATS in the last 12 meetings overall and 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings in Golden State.
The Warriors have been money at home all season and unless coach Kerr decides to rest a bunch of his starters, I don't see how they don't win by double digits once again.
