The Spurs are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest and 46-21 ATS in their last 67 games overall. The Warriors are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. NBA Southwest. The Spurs are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Golden State and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings overall.
Duncan has been ruled out of this game for the Spurs. Not good if you liked San Antonio. Regardless, the Warriors and simply unbeatable at home and I don't see that changing here. Take Golden State and the small chalk. You'd be a fool to bet against the Warriors at Oracle.
