Warriors hammer Nets at home

Quinn Cook tallied 27 points, five assists and three rebounds. Klay Thompson added 24 points and two steals. Golden State led 65-53 at halftime and padded the lead after the break.
Clippers take down Bucks in OT

The Clippers led 89-84 through three quarters, but were unable to hold the lead in regulation before prevailing in the overtime thriller. Patrick Beverley helped pace the Clippers with 21 points on 7-of-11 shooting including 5-of-8 from beyond the arc. He added five rebounds and three assists.

NBA Betting Trends
The Warriors are 4-0 ATS in their last four meetings in LA. The over is 7-0 in the last seven meetings.
The Clippers are 5-0 ATS in their last five home games. The over is 12-5 in the last 17 meetings in Los Angeles.
Golden State will see the return of Draymond Green to the lineup tonight to help make up for the absence of Curry. Cook was awesome at point guard two nights ago and the Warriors will hope for more of the same tonight. Look for another huge night out of Durant as he carries more of the load offensively. I'm going to take advantage of a short line and a team that is still really good without Curry. There's also the fact that the Clippers have struggled in recent years against Golden State and are coming off a grueling overtime game.
