Golden State Warriors vs. Denver Nuggets Preview

In Game 1 the Nuggets beat the Warriors 97-95.

On the season the Warriors are 43-39-1 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 47-35-1 and the Nuggets are 49-33-1 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 46-36-1.

This season the Nuggets have the best home record in the NBA at 39-3 and the Warriors are 19-23 on the road.

The loss of Lee is a big one for Golden State, as the All Star PF averaged a double double this season. Carl Landry or Draymond Green will likely get his minutes and they will need to step up, especially on the boards. In his 3 years with Golden State Lee has missed 21 games and without him on the court the Warriors are only 3-18.

Curry was only 7/20 from the floor in Game 1 and while he did have 9 assists he must shoot the rock better tonight.

Miller came off the bench in Game 1 and not only hit the game winner, but was 11/16 from the floor for 28 points. The Warriors’ backcourt has to keep he and starting PG Ty Lawson from having big scoring games. [ad-6571516]

The Nuggets had balanced scoring in Game 1 with 5 players scoring in double figures, but they only hit on 3 of their 16 3-pointers. If they are not getting their shots to fall they have to get out on the break and get easy buckets.

Kenneth Faried missed Game 1 with an ankle injury, but he should go tonight and him matching up with Warriors’ C Andrew Bogut is a key match up.

In some betting trends for this Western Conference playoff match up the Warriors are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games, and they have an Under record of 5-2 in their last 7 games.

The Nuggets are 15-6 ATS in their last 21 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall, and they have an Over record of 4-1 in their last 5 games.

Jason’s Pick: Have to go with the Warriors in this one, as even without Lee Curry and Klay Thomson will have good shooting nights and Golden State will cover.
