After falling to Golden State on the road back in late February 80-112, Oklahoma City will have revenge on their minds at home, while we also could be seeing a preview of a potential playoff matchup. With no Steph Curry, Oklahoma City has opened up as 2.5 point favorites, while the line has remained stagnant.
Golden State Warriors
The injuries have these Warriors limping towards playoffs as they have gone 5-5 in their 10 matchups while only going 4-6 ATS. Their most recent outing resulted in a 117-107 victory over the Phoenix Suns, but couldn’t cover the 15 point spread.
No Steph Curry no problem for Golden State as they shot nearly 54% from the field at home against Phoenix. Kevin Durant led all scorers dropping 29 points while also grabbing 11 boards and dishing out eight assists. Draymond Green also chipped in with 13 points, six rebounds and 12 assists.
In their last five contests the offense is converting 48.0% of their shots, which is off from their season average of 50.51%. The defense has been giving up 104.2 PPG in that span, which has been better than their season average of 106.9 PPG.
Golden State’s offense continues to be one of the best teams on the road ranking 1st in PPG, 1st in FG% and 2nd in 3PT%. Defensively they’ve been a little more lax ranking 20th in PPG, 5th in FG%, 18th 3PT% and 11th in RPG.
Oklahoma City Thunder
We’ve been waiting all year for Oklahoma City to turn up the heat but we are still waiting. They have won six of their last 10 contests, while going 4-5-1 ATS.
In their most recent outing they were able to take down the New Orleans Pelican on the road 109-104 while also ending a three-game skid.
Paul George led all scorers with 27 points while grabbing 8 rebounds. The game ball however had to go to Russell Westbrook who dropped a triple-double adding 26 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists.
They’re shooting hasn’t been good as they have only been sinking 43% of their shots in their last five contests, which is off from their season average of 45.4%. The defense has been giving up 108 PPG in that span, but in their defense they have been playing good offensive squads.
Oklahoma City’s offense has been up and down all year at home ranking 12th in PPG, 14th in FG%, 26th in 3PT% and 29th in FT%. On the defensive side they have been better ranking 8th in PPG, 14th in FG%, 25th in 3PT% and 6th in RPG.

Free Golden State Warriors vs. Oklahoma City Thunder NBA Prediction: Oklahoma City holds on at home
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Oklahoma City -2.5
Both teams have been lackluster as far as covering spreads go. Golden State is still without Curry and has the two seed pretty much locked up. Oklahoma City still can improve their playoff positioning so I’ll give them the motivation edge.
The Thunder have gone 14-5 in their last 19 at home versus Golden State.
I’ll roll with the home team who is healthier and has more on the line.
