GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS vs CLEVELAND CAVALIERS BETTING PREVIEW
The defending champions Golden State Warriors have a record of 26-7 (15-18 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Houston Rockets on the first place of the Western Conference. They are averaging only 103 points per game over the last five games, which is still decent, but it’s not what the Warriors are used to. In their last game - a defeat at the hands of the Denver Nuggets - their offense really struggled as the Warriors only scored 81 points. That loss snapped Golden State's 11-game winning run
The Warriors have dealt with a lot of injuries in the last few weeks, but they are only going to be without Stephen Curry for this clash as the Davidson College graduate has been sidelined since December 4th. The good news for the Warriors is that Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala returned to the line-up against the Nuggets and should be good to go on Monday.
The Cleveland Cavaliers got off to a slow start this year, and there was some panic around the NBA about how good this team really was. Anyway, they now boast a 24-9 record (11-21-1 against the spread) and currently sit 2nd in the Eastern Conference, tied with the Toronto Raptors. They enter this game having won eight of the last ten games averaging 113 points per game and shooting over 50 percent from the field in the last 5 games. They beat the Chicago Bulls 115-112 on Thursday to get back on track after their five-game winning run ended in Milwaukee on Tuesday.
For the Cavaliers, the burden carried by Lebron James remains staggering, with Isaiah Thomas not expected to suit up for the first time until the New Year. Guards JR Smith (knee) and Derrick Rose (ankle) are both day-to-day.
The Warriors are 12-4 at home so far this season, while the Cavs are 10-5 on the road. This is the first meeting between last season's finalists this season when the Warriors beat the Cavaliers won the title. In their seven meetings last season, Warriors led the Cavs 5-2 wins including that 4-1 finals series.
