Warriors Aim for 10th Straight Win vs Clippers

The final leg of the 2016-17 NBA season gets underway tonight as the action on the hardwood resumes after the all-star break with six games on tap. The highlight of the slate pits Western Conference heavyweights and bitter rivals Golden State and the L.A. Clippers against each other at Oracle Arena, where sportsbooks opened the Dubs as 14-point home favorites with a total of 230.

Shark Bites
  • The Warriors are 6-0-1 ATS in their last seven games as home favorites.
  • The Clippers are 4-1 ATS in their last five games as an underdog of 12.5 or more.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 15 of the Warriors' last 21 games after an ATS win.

The biggest storyline in this game is the potential return of all-star point guard Chris Paul. Paul, who was initially expected to be sidelined until the middle of March after undergoing surgery to repair a torn thumb ligament in January, was back on the practice court Tuesday and Wednesday and has been medically cleared to play.

Clippers head coach Doc Rivers wouldn’t say if the 31-year-old would see the floor, but we’ll update this article when the decision is made before game time.

Golden State likely won’t reach last season’s 73-9 regular season record, but that’s just fine for Steve Kerr’s group. The Warriors are equally as dominant this time around, as the squad is leading the Association in scoring (118.2 PPG), field-goal percentage (50.1), assists (31), point differential (plus-12.8) and 3-point defensive field-goal percentage (32.5). The Warriors also rank second in defensive field-goal percentage (43.6).

Just how one-sided has this series been of late? In the last nine meetings between the Clips and Warriors, Golden State is a sizzling 9-0 SU.
