Warriors are an ATS Gold Mine vs Blazers

CJ McCollum Klay Thompson

Many experts around the NBA thought the Golden State Warriors would struggle in the absence of Stephen Curry. The Warriors obviously had something to say about that. Without their superstar point guard, the Warriors dispatched the Houston Rockets in the first-round and hammered Portland 118-106 in Game 1 of their Western Conference semifinals series.

Shark Bites
  • The Trail Blazers are 1-8 ATS in their last nine games against the Warriors.
  • The Warriors are 8-1 ATS in their last nine games as a favorite of 10 or less.
  • The Trail Blazers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games as an underdog of 10 points or more.

Game 2, which gets underway tonight in Oakland, presents Portland with another opportunity to step up against the Curry-less Warriors. The Blazers will need a better performance from their backcourt, as Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum combined to shoot 13 for 43 in the loss.

Another area where Portland will have to improve is on the glass. The Blazers got out-rebounded 55-40 in the tilt and gave up 16 offensive boards. It’s a classic case of experience vs inexperience, and the Dubs capitalized.
