The Golden State Warriors look to inch one game closer to NBA history. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 115.3 points on 48.7 percent shooting and allowing 104.2 points on 43.5 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 30.1 points and 6.5 assists while Klay Thompson is averaging 22.4 points and 3.8 rebounds.

The Warriors are allowing 33.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.2 rebounds per game. The Golden State Warriors have lost just one home game all season long. Andre Iguodala and Andrew Bogut are questionable.
The Timberwolves are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Warriors are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. NBA Northwest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The Timberwolves are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Warriors have kind of allowed teams to hang around lately, which includes a loss to the Boston Celtics. Still, Golden State is getting these monster spreads. I don't love taking the Timberwolves, but they did compete with Golden State earlier. This game is a no play for me, but if forced to pick, I'd take the points simply due to them being an insane amount.
