Milwaukee is looking to move up in the East as they are three games behind Boston and Atlanta. Golden State (35-28 SU, 31-31-1 ATS, 39-23-1 O/U) struggled at home on Friday night with a loss to Houston, 94-88. They finally defended well, but couldn't put the ball in the basket (38 percent) and turned the ball over 16 times. Their starting backcourt of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 46 points, but they also played 43 minutes apiece. And they are playing with no rest which means the Milwaukee backcourt of Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings will be much fresher.
