The Mavericks were led by Harrison Barnes with 17 points, six rebounds and three steals in the win over San Antonio. Yogi Ferrell had 16 points, eight rebounds and two assists.

Bet on Mavericks vs. Warriors

This spread would be much higher if Steph Curry and Draymond Green were in the lineup tonight. Green has a small chance to play, but is listed as doubtful with a shoulder injury. Even so, Durant and Thompson can more than fill up the offensive load and Durant will likely match up with Barnes on the other side of the floor. It's hard to see how the Mavs keep this one close with their lack of firepower. Only Barea off the bench could be a saving grace, but don't count on it. Take the Warriors at home.
