Golden State Warriors Betting Preview
The Golden State Warriors have lost 5 straight games and lost to OKC on Thursday. The Golden State Warriors have lost 4 straight home games. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 112.6 points on 44.2 percent shooting and allowing 112.1 points on 45.9 percent shooting.

The Golden State Warriors are allowing 35.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.2 rebounds per game.
The Oklahoma City Thunder just smoked the Warriors boots a couple of weeks ago, and they get them here again in the same venue. The Golden State Warriors are still without Green and Curry is questionable, so I don't expect much to change if those guys are out. OKC is also 9-3 ATS on the season, so they're a team you should be eager to back regardless of the circumstances. We're only laying a bucket. Give me the Thunder.
