Stephen Curry is averaging 25.8 points and 6.3 assists, while Andrew Wiggins is averaging 17.7 points and 4.2 rebounds.

The Portland Trail Blazers are averaging 108.2 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 112 points on 47.2 percent shooting. Josh Hart is averaging 24 points and 5 rebounds, while Anfernee Simons is averaging 17 points and 3.9 assists.

The Warriors are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 road games and 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Trail Blazers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Thursday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Warriors last 4 overall. The under is 8-2 in Trail Blazers last 10 home games. The over is 16-5 in the last 21 meetings in Portland.
The Portland Trail Blazers entered the break playing some decent ball, and that makes them worth a look in the big underdog role. However, the Trail Blazers are still a very banged up team that's throwing out a G League roster for the most part, and it's important not to overreact to four games. The Golden State Warriors are an experienced club that likely benefited greatly from the break, and they still win in the favorite role by an average of 8.3 points. I have to lay the chalk here if forced to pick.
