The Golden State Warriors and Charlotte Hornets play Friday night at the Time Warner Cable Arena.
The Golden State Warriors have won seven straight games and are playing some of the best basketball in the league. On the season, the Warriors are averaging 107.4 points on 49.3 percent shooting and are allowing 96.4 points on 40.9 percent shooting. Stephen Curry leads the Warriors with 24.2 points on 49.8 percent shooting and Klay Thompson is averaging 21.7 points on 45.7 percent shooting. Andrew Bogut is grabbing 9.4 rebounds and Draymond Green is shooting 35.5 percent from deep. We know the Golden State Warriors can score points by the truckload but its their defense that’s holding team to 39.5 percent shooting in their last five games that’s been the most impressive. The Warriors were my pick to win it all and they've been playing like a title contender.

The Charlotte Hornets have lost seven straight games and are in danger already of missing the playoffs. On the season, the Hornets are averaging 94.3 points on 43.5 percent shooting and are allowing 100.6 points on 46.4 percent shooting. Al Jefferson leads the Hornets with 20.7 points and 7.9 rebounds while Kemba Walker is averaging 14.7 points and 5.3 assists. Gary Neal is the third Charlotte player to average double-digit points and Lance Stephenson is 5-19 from the field in his last two games. Of course, the main issue for the Charlotte Hornets is their lack of offense, as they’re 1-10 this season when scoring less than 100 points. Until Stephenson gets comfortable with his new team, the Hornets are going to struggle to win games.
The Warriors are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games and 21-7 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The Hornets are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 0-5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
The Charlotte Hornets are no match with the way the Golden State Warriors are playing. This is also a return home game for Curry, so you know he's going to put on a show. Golden State will win by double digits.
