Golden State had dominated the series with 12 consecutive victories, but the Clippers finally put an end to that with a 125-106 road victory on Jan. 10. The Warriors are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings, while the over has hit six straight times and is 7-3 over the last 10.
Los Angeles won its last two games before the All-Star break and five of the past six. The Clippers are 6-4 ATS in their last 10 games, while the under is 8-2 over that stretch. Golden State had a three-game winning streak snapped with a 123-117 loss at Portland on Feb. 14. The Warriors are 5-5 ATS in their last 10 contests, while the over-under is also 5-5.
With plenty of rest on their side and being at home, I fully expect the Warriors to come out with a charge tonight on national television. They certainly don't want to be embarrassed at home by the Clippers. Look for Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green to all have productive nights as the Warriors cover this spread in an impressive performance.
