Draymond Green had an impressive triple-double of 20 points, 13 rebounds, 12 assists and four steals. Klay Thompson added 19 points, five assists and five rebounds.

NBA Betting Trends

Golden State

The Warriors are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight against Northwest opponents and 16-7-1 ATS in their last 24 Monday games.

Portland

The Blazers are just 1-4 ATS in their last five home games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games playing on 1 day of rest.

Prediction:

It’s entirely possible that the Warriors could take their foot off the gas tonight and get beaten soundly. They have a 3-0 lead and know this series is theirs for the taking. However, Golden State has been amazing since losing Durant. They have really known how to put the fatal blow to their opponents and I think they will continue to play with that edge tonight. Curry and Green have been off the charts, especially in the second halves of this series. The Blazers just look overwhelmed and lacking in confidence.

NBA Prediction: Golden State Warriors -3.5
