The Golden State Warriors have serious issues on the road and this line is massive, but they're going to play their starters as they still have to clinch the sixth seed. Also, the Portland Trail Blazers are playing a handful of guys who aren't NBA players, and they're losing their last 5 games by an average of 14.8 points. The Trail Blazers are not only tanking, they're losing games in ugly fashion. It's Warriors and the chalk or pass for me.
