Golden State is coming off a 114-102 win at Toronto as a 2 point favorite last night (the Warriors were part of my overall 6-1 card).
The Warriors finally got Andrew Bogut back from injury in the win, but unfortunately lost Stephen Curry in the third quarter with an ankle sprain. Curry will be a game time decision, but will obviously not be at 100% if he does in fact get the start tonight.
Bogut contributed 12 points and eight boards.
Note though that Golden State is just 6-8 ATS this year when playing against a team with a losing record.
Cleveland is 13-32 SU and 21-23-1 ATS; it's coming off a 99-98 win at Toronto as a 7 point underdog on the 26th.
The Cavs have now won three in a row.
Kyrie Irving has averaged 35.7 PPG during the streak, and hit a game winning 3-pointer at the buzzer to beat the Raptors.
Note that Cleveland is 13-10 ATS when playing against a team with a winning record.
The Cavs have lost four straight in this series, including a 106-96 road setback on November 7th.
I believe the home side catches the Warriors off-guard on the second game of their back to back scenario, and pulls away down the stretch for the comfortable ATS cover!
