Portland Trail Blazers vs Golden State Warriors prediction

The Golden State Warriors should be favored and should win, but they're also on the end of a back to back. The Portland Trail Blazers have been better with the return of Anfernee Simons, and they've covered 5 of their last 10 games. When the Trail Blazers and Warriors met last week, Portland lost by just 4 points and had its chances to spring an upset. Potential tired legs for the undermanned Warriors with Andrew Wiggins, Gary Payton II and Draymond Green on their injury list. Give me the points.
