The Golden State Warriors look to stay hot after winning five of their last seven games. On the season, the Warriors are averaging 109.6 points on 47.7 percent shooting and are allowing 99.4 points on 42.6 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 23.9 points and 7.8 assists while Klay Thompson is averaging 21.3 points and 3.2 rebounds. Draymond Green is dishing 3.7 assists and Marreese Speights is grabbing 4.3 rebounds. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 46.3 percent from the field and 39.1 percent from deep in their last five games. The Warriors haven’t lost a home game since January 27th. The Warriors still haven’t shown signs of resting their starters. Leandro Barbosa is questionable with an injury.
The Timberwolves are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games playing on 0 days rest and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 vs. NBA Pacific. The Warriors are 41-19 ATS in their last 60 vs. Western Conference and 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Timberwolves are 6-14 ATS in the last 20 meetings.
I'm not laying this much chalk in an NBA game, but I will side with the over. I expect the Warriors to go out there and have fun by making 68 threes. This one will get ugly.
