The Golden State Warriors have been a hit or miss team all year, and they're coming off a rough loss to a bad Magic side. However, the Charlotte Hornets are a young team that's going through issues of their own and are hard to trust against some of the better teams in the league. The Warriors obviously aren't as good as they once were, but they're a veteran club that's bounced back from losses all season. I'll lay the bucket with the Warriors, the team easier to trust.
