The Warriors are coming off a 112-95 loss in Los Angeles on Sunday. It was a surprising loss as Golden State went just 4 of 30 from 3-point land. Don’t expect that to happen again anytime soon, especially tonight. The Warriors are 4-1 against the spread after a loss this season and 11-4 ATS when playing on no rest. Golden State is making a push for the Bulls’ 72-win season, so they will be plenty fired up to get Sunday’s loss behind them. Orlando shouldn’t stand much chance to compete tonight.
