NBA FREE PICK: Take Golden State. According to latest NBA trends, Spurs are 5-13 ATS last 18 playing on 1 days rest, 3-10 ATS last 13 following a SU win and 2-9 ATS last 11 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous games. Golden State is 19-7 ATS last 26 overall, 6-1 ATS last 7 following an ATS loss, 5-1 ATS last 6 home games and Underdog is 4-1 ATS last 5 in series.
The Spurs took care of business in Game 5 at home. The Warriors got nothing from the "splash brothers" backcourt of Klay Thompson and Steepen Curry, who combined for 13 points on 6-of-22 shooting in Game 5. That won't happen at home as they may be playing their last game in Oakland this year. He Warriors can't win if the so-called "splash brothers" are shooting 6-of-22 from the field combined. The Warriors know they have to get off to a much better start than Game 5 when they allowed the Spurs to shoot 72 points and score 37 points. When they cut the lead to four in the third quarter, turnovers (11 in the second half) was their undoing. The Spurs also outrebounded the Warriors for the first time in the series (by two). That was partially due to Andrew Bogut winding up in foul trouble. Expect the Warriors to rebound at home in front of the most rabid fans in the NBA.
