It would surprise nobody if the Golden State Warriors come out and win in blowout fashion. However, the Warriors lack of effort defensively is becoming more and more of a concern, and they just lost to a banged up Hornets team last night. It doesn't help that the game went to overtime, which means the Warriors could be dealing with some tired legs here. Say what you want about the Detroit Pistons, but they're a young group that can push the pace and expose possibly fatigued bodies. I'll take a stab at the home dog.
