★★★

After embarrassing two of the Eastern Conference's top teams on the road by 30 points each, the Golden State Warriors return to Oakland to take on the physical Indiana Pacers. Klay Thompson dropped 39 points on 10 made three-pointers and Steph Curry added 29 points and 10 assists in a 131-123 victory over the Pacers in Indiana back on December 8th.

The Dubs enter Friday as 13 point favorites over the visiting Pacers. Indiana is 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games with two days of rest in between games according to OddsShark.com. The over/under line is tentatively set at 217.5 total points. Friday night's game between the Warriors and Pacers features three of the best shooters from distance in the Association.

Both teams shot a combined 30 for 68 (44%) on three point attempts back on December 8th. Paul George likes to let them fly so I would expect the over to be solid pick for tonight's game. The total has gone over in six of Golden State's last eight games and five of their last seven when playing Indiana at home. The Dubs are the highest scoring team in the NBA and are averaging 117 points per game over their last ten games.

FLO'S PICKS

From 1/20 vs. Chicago:

ML: WARRIORS - WIN - GS 125-94
ATS: WARRIORS (-7) - WIN - GS by 31
O/U: OVER (214.5) - WIN - 219 total points
Season Totals:
ML: 36-5 (88%)
ATS: 22-19 (54%)
O/U: 21-20 (51%)

The way Golden State finished of their road trip makes it really hard to take Indiana plus the points tonight, specially when you factor in how well the Warriors play at home. I expect it to be a high scoring affair with the Dubs covering.

Here are my picks for tonight's game against the Pacers:

ML: WARRIORS
ATS: WARRIORS (-13)
O/U: OVER (217.5)
