The Warriors handled business and defeated the Rockets without Dwight Howard. Without the Houston big man, the Rockets were moved four point underdogs. The Warriors recovered after a slow first half with Steph Curry taking over. The Warriors covered the spread and the game went below the set total.
Tonight’s spread has dictated that the Warriors are 2.5 point underdogs. The reasoning behind the line is because the Warriors are playing in the second half of a back-to-back and Klay Thompson will miss his first game of his career with a sprained hand. The total set for the game is another high total of 209. Both offenses are sensational and play at an uptempo pace. Don’t be shocked to see the game go passed the set 209 mark. For those seeking more specific action on the Warriors:
* Injury note: (GSW) Klay Thompson, David Lee. (PHX) T.J. Warren.
Total Points Over/Under: 25.5
Total Rebounds, & Assists: 12.5
Total Points Over/Under: 21.5
Total Rebounds & Assists Over/Under: 5.5
Total Points Over/Under: 12
Total Rebounds, & Assists: 10.5
Draymond’s great play has the lines makers noticing. His total points over/under has risen to 12 from 10 in last night’s contest. Klay’s line has remained the same and if he can get out of his slump, he should triumph the points total easily. Curry’s total points jumped a point from the last contest with his hot shooting.
Best bet: Stephen Curry OVER 25.5 points.
