These teams played on Tuesday, and while the Denver Nuggets won, it was the Warriors who absolutely dominated the second half and showed just how quickly they can erase a big deficit. The Golden State Warriors are still the more consistent team, they cover numbers left and right, and they're winning by an average of 11.5 points in the favorite role. I'm still riding the Warriors' bandwagon until the tickets stop cashing. Give me the Warriors.
Randy’s Pick Golden State Warriors -4.5
