The Warriors are 34-15-2 ATS in their last 51 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 3 or more days rest. The Spurs are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Golden State and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings overall.
While getting free points with the Spurs usually seems to be the way to go, they are coming off a tough and drawn out game against the Clippers, while the Warriors have yet to play since the break and will be at home where they usually shoot lights out. This one could get ugly if the Spurs aren't careful.
