NBA FREE PICK: Take Golden State. According to latest NBA trends, Golden State is 7-3 ATS versus Portland over the last 3 seasons. The Warriors (46-35 SU, 41-39-1 ATS, 47-33-1 O/U) are coming off a 116-106 win over San Antonio on Monday, giving 6. The Trail Blazers (33-48 SU, 34-43-4 ATS, 44-35-2 O/U) lost at the LA Clippers, 93-77 getting 15.5 on Tuesday. The Warriors are hoping to win this game so they can capture the sixth seed, which likely means they'll be facing Denver in the round. If they lose and Houston beats the Lakers, the Warriors would be facing the Spurs in the first round. Guard Stephen Curry is also looking to set the single-season record for made 3-pointers. Portland has dropped 12 straight games and they just haven't played with a full deck lately. Expect that to continue as the Blazers are better off with a better position in the lottery than an upset win. Golden State travels to the Rose Garden in Portland to take on the Trailblazers at 10:30pm.
