Who the Public Likes: As of Saturday morning, 71 percent of public bets have been placed on Golden State.

Injury Report: Warriors forward Omri Casspi has missed the last two games with a back injury, but will be available to play today. David West sprained his ankle last game, but will play this afternoon.  Kevin Durant missed the last game with a right calf strain and his status for today is in question. For the Clippers, Milos Teodosic left the last game with plantar fascitis and is unlikely to play today. Austin Rivers is expected to be out until late January with an Achilles strain. Danilo Gallinari will be out another month with a glute strain. Patrick Beverley is out for the season with a knee injury.

Who the Trends Like: Golden State is 5-1 ATS in its last six meetings in Los Angeles and 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings overall. The over is 4-0 in the last four meetings.

Who We Like: The Warriors have absolutely owned the Clippers, winning 11 consecutive meetings straight up and covering the spread seven of the last 10 meetings. It's clearly mental for Los Angeles at this point. Even though the Clippers were mostly healthy during the first meeting this season on Oct. 30, Golden State ran away with a 141-113 victory at the Oracle. I'm not picking the Clippers until I see some more pushback in this series.
