The Golden State Warriors look for a bounce back win after losing two of their last three games. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 121.9 points on 51.9 percent shooting and allowing 110.8 points on 44.8 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 29.5 points and 6.1 assists while Kevin Durant is averaging 26.9 points and 7.2 rebounds.

The Hawks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games, 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. Western Conference and 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 vs. NBA Pacific. The Warriors are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 7-23-1 ATS in their last 31 Tuesday games. The under is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings in Golden State.
The Golden State Warriors will still be without Steph Curry, but there's more than enough on this roster to bury the Atlanta Hawks, even on the end of a back to back. The Hawks are one of the worst defensive teams in the league, and that's not something you want to hear when Klay, Durant and others are on the other side. The Warriors should also have a nasty taste in their mouth with the way last night ended against the Clippers. I look for Golden State to take out some frustration tonight.
