Trends will be updated once they’ve been released.
Sacramento's win over the Lakers was solid, but let's not forget that most of the starters (LeBron and co) didn't see the floor for more than 15 minutes. Even in short bursts on the floor, the Warriors are showing regular season form of the powerful offense we've become accustomed to seeing, so with that said I'll side with the Warriors to win and cover on the neutral floor.
