The Golden State Warriors look to build on their historic 65-7 record. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 115.4 points on 48.7 percent shooting and allowing 104.3 points on 43.4 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 30.2 points and 6.6 assists while Klay Thompson is averaging 22.4 points and 3.9 rebounds.

The Warriors are allowing 33.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.2 rebounds per game. The Golden State Warriors haven’t lost a home game since January of last year.
The 76ers are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games. The Warriors are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games. The 76ers are 2-8 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Golden State.
The 76ers don't have enough offensive firepower to help the Warriors get over this total, and Golden State isn't going to play its starters more than it needs to. I like the under in this spot to avoid the insane line.
