The Golden State Warriors look for another win 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 42.7 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 24 points and 7.7 assists while Klay Thompson is averaging 21.3 points and 3.2 rebounds. Draymond Green is grabbing 8.2 rebounds and Harrison Barnes is dishing 1.4 assists. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 47.4 percent from the field and 41.2 percent from deep in their last five games. The Warriors have yet to lose a game this season when allowing less than 100 points. The Warriors also haven’t lost a home game since January 27th, as their last eight losses have come on the road.
The Nuggets are 7-16 ATS in their last 23 games following a S.U. loss and 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 1 days rest. The Warriors are 40-19-2 ATS in their last 61 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Nuggets are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Golden State and 3-9 ATS in the last 12 meetings overall.
The Nuggets are in for a world of hurting assuming the Warriors continue to play their starters decent minutes. I don't love the chalk, but it's the only pick if you're really going to wager on this game.
