The Warriors are 19-6-1 ATS in their last 26 games playing on 0 days rest and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games. The Clippers are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games playing on 1 days rest and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Pacific. The road team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
I was considering the Clippers and the points with the way they're playing, but a blowout Friday loss to the Trail Blazers will have the Warriors focused for this one. Really hard to ignore the low line with a motivated Golden State club.
