Golden State Warriors (4-2 SU, 1-5 ATS, 4-2 O/U) at Los Angeles Clippers (4-1 SU, 4-1 ATS, 0-5 O/U)

When and Where: Monday, Oct. 30, Staples Center, Los Angeles, Calif., 10:30pmET

Line: Golden State -4.5

Total: 221

The Los Angeles Clippers are coming off a disappointing 95-87 home loss to Detroit on Saturday. Now they have to face Golden State, who also lost to Detroit at home, 115-107 on Sunday. The Warriors swept the Clippers last season, 4-0 in the regular season.

Warriors blow 14-point lead against Pistons

Golden State is not known for blowing big leads, especially at home. But the Warriors became unglued late in their game against Detroit. They were up 68-54 midway through the third quarter and Detroit took an 82-81 lead at the end of the quarter. They took a 13-point lead midway through the fourth quarter, before going on a big run but couldn’t finish the deal. The Warriors turned the ball over 25 times and that spoiled their 57.1 percent shooting from the field. Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 29 points on 12-of-19 shooting, while Kevin Durant added 28 points. Steph Curry had a strong game with 27 points, eight assists and six boards on 11-of-17 shooting.

Defensively, Golden State struggled to contain Reggie Jackson, who had 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting and Avery Bradley, who led with 23 points on 8-of-13 shooting. The Pistons shot 46.2 percent from the field and a sizzling 12-of-27 from the three-point line (44.4%).

Clips four-game winning streak snapped

This was quite a road trip for the Pistons. They took advantage of a turnover-prone Golden State team and their defense held a red-hot Clippers team to just 87 points. The Clippers led 55-45 at the half and led by as many as 13 in the third quarter. But the Pistons came back in the fourth quarter, and the Clips could never recover. Austin Rivers led the Clippers with 20 points on 6-of-8 from 3-point range. Blake Griffin added 19 points and 11 boards, while Danilo Gallinari scored 13 for Los Angeles.

The Pistons shot just 40.9 percent from the field but turned it over just 12 times. Meanwhile, the Clippers turned it over 18 times and shot a pathetic 33.3 percent from the field. Had they not made 15 of 38 three-pointers, this would have been a blowout.

NBA Trends:

Golden State is:

  • 4-1 ATS last 5 Monday games.

LA Clippers are:

  • 2-5 ATS last 7 home games.
  • 1-4 ATS last 5 in series.

Even though the Warriors have no rest, I’d can’t take the Clippers. Golden State has their number and they have a huge edge in the backcourt. The road team is 7-3 ATS last 10 in this series.

Pick: Golden State

These teams should be a bit fatigued and well, angry after losing to Detroit. Golden State is an over team, while the Clippers are an under squad. I’ll take the over here as Golden State is 21-8 Over their last 29 overall and 7-1 Over their last 8 road games.
