Golden State Warriors -6.5 at Washington Wizards
For the Golden State Warriors, this is the second game in as many days, after they had to take on the Philadelphia 76ers the night before. This should make things tough on the Warriors, as they have to bring their uptempo style of play into Washington against another uptempo team after having to play just one night earlier. While the Warriors certainly are talented enough to beat anyone in the NBA, they are human and could get tired out in this game.
Washington, meanwhile, have been very strong at home this season, and are one of the few teams who have the guards necessary to tangle with the Warriors. John Wall and Bradley Beal are easily capable of trading shots with Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, while the Wizards have the bigs to make things difficult on Zaza Pachulia and JaVale McGee.
The Wizards enter this game at 24-8 at home on the season, while the Warriors currently sit at 24-6 away from home on the campaign. That is a testament to how well both teams have played at the respective venues mentioned, but the Wizards should have the advantage in this game with them being at home. If they continue to play with the form that they've enjoyed at home over the course of the season thus far, they should be able to pull an upset here.
For the Warriors, this game will be another litmus test. A win on the road against one of the best home teams in the Eastern Conference would be a strong sign that they are ready to win another title. But the Wizards will keep this game close enough to cover, whether they win or not.
Pick: Washington Wizards +6.5 over Golden State Warriors
