★★★

In case you missed it, the Golden State Warriors hand delivered a firm female dog slap to the face of the Cleveland Cavaliers' franchise in their own building Monday night. Chris Haynes of Cleveland.com reported pre game that Cavs' players felt 'disrespected' about Curry's locker room champagne commentsLeBron James even left his pre game session with the media asking why reporters didn't ask him if he had a rebuttal for Curry.

LeBron said he had an answer, but as Maury said best, we determined that was a lie. Nobody had an answer for Steph Curry - or anyone else on the Warriors - in Golden State's 132-98 beat down of the Cavaliers on MLK Day. According to ESPN Stats, the 34 point loss was the worst of LBJ's illustrious career.

However in the grand scheme of things, Monday's game against Cleveland is just one of 82. The Warriors are in Chicago on Wednesday night and enter their game against the Bulls as seven point favorites. The Bulls beat the Detroit Pistons 111-101 on Monday in their first game since losing Joakim Noah to a season ending shoulder injury last friday.

Both Golden State and Chicago are having trouble covering the spread as of late, coming into Wednesday night's matchup 2-11 ATS in their last 11 collective games, although Golden State is 5-2 ATS in their last seven on the road.

The over/under line is tentatively set at 214.5 total points according to BetOnline. The total has gone over in five of Chicago's last six games and six of their last nine at home. The over is usually a safe bet when Golden State is playing, as the under is just 2-5 in the Warriors' last seven games and 1-4 in their last five road games.

FLO'S PICKS

From 1/18 vs. Cleveland:
ML CLEVELAND - LOSS - GS 132-98
ATS CLEVELAND -3 - LOSS - GS by 34
O/UUNDER 209 - LOSS - 230 total points
Season Totals:

I really thought that Cleveland had a lot to prove and would come out hungry against the Dubs on Monday. That is the second straight 0-3 set of picks and probably the most embarrassing of them all. Much like the Cavs I will just have to take that one on the chin.

Here are my picks for tonight's game against Chicago:

ML: WARRIORS
ATS: WARRIORS (-7)
O/U: OVER (214.5)
