Golden State Warriors 3 @ Los Angeles Clippers 2
Prediction – Game Total Under 233.5
Golden State – 9.5
Golden State can bring it on the defensive end when they need to and are very good at backing up losses in the playoffs.
This one may be a little different because Kevin Durant did drop 45 and they still lost. Stephen Curry has been well contained by Patrick Beverley and expect Steph to let loose some time soon.
The Game Total has gone under the number 65% of the time after a Warriors loss and that trend should continue here with the Warriors letting the Clippers shoot at 54%, from the field in Game 5.
The scoring may dry up a bit and if the Warriors bring it on the defensive end they should cover the spread.
Andre Iguodala + 7.5 Points
Andre always steps up in big games and will get a fair amount of chances to score in this contest. His number here is rather low and expect him to reach double figures.
Kevon Looney + 6.5 Points
Looney will play minutes to try and help Bogut stop some of the Clippers bigs. He got a couple of cheap buckets in Game 5 and should cover the number here.
Klay Thompson + 21.5 Points
Klay shoots well at the Staple Centre and should get plenty of opportunities in this one.
We know he can get hot and may cover this by half time. Expect a lot of looks at the hoops and Klay to score above his average as the Warriors will need it.
Stephen Curry + 28.5 Points
Curry has been quiet the last few games but has averaged over 30 against the Clippers during the regular season. He will look to penetrate and take Beverley on who is a feisty player.
Draymond Green + 7.5 Rebounds
Draymond Green + 7.5 Assists
Nobody steps up more in big games for the Warriors than Draymond Green. He may even cover the points in this one. Expect him to crash the boards and look for open teammates a lot. A lot of Steve Kerrs plays are run through Draymond so he will give all three of his player props a nudge.
Kevin Durant + 5.5 Rebounds
Kevin Durant + 4.5 Assists
When the Warriors were struggling in the Post Season last year Kevin Durant was told to not be afraid to use his teammates. He did that and they started playing good ball again. Durant will still score points but he may have a good night of rebounds and assists to go with it.
Danilo Gallinari – 19.5 Points
Gallinari was a problem for the Warriors in Game 5 and expect him to gets lots of attention here. He scored 26 in the last contest and it is difficult to see that happening again.
If he misses some early shots the under will look good. Danilo only averaged 13 against the Warriors in the Regular season.
Montrezl Harrell – 17.5 Points
Lou Williams and Harrell have caused the Warriors a lot of problems during this series. Harrell has come off the bench and played well.
Expect Harrell to get a lot of attention on the defensive end which will make it difficult for him to cover the number.
