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!

But Kyrie Erving is sick and is questionable. Isn't that a fatal blow to the Cavs offense?
