After dousing the Heat in Miami, the Golden State Warriors head to Orlando to play their second game in as many nights. The defending champions were scheduled an NBA high 20 back-to-back games for the 2015-2016 season. However Golden State shines in the face of adversity, bolstering a 13-1 record on the season in games played with no days rest according to TeamRankings.com.

Believe it or not the last time the Warriors played the Magic was all the way back on December 2nd of 2014. Much like Wednesday's game against Miami, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson took over in the fourth after an ugly first three quarters.


The Dubs enter Thursday's contest as eight and a half point favorites over a much improved Magic team. Golden State is 10-4 ATS with no days rest, but hold a sub par record of 10-12 ATS on the season against the Eastern Conference and have covered the spread only once in their last six games. At 32-23, Orlando is one of the best team's in the NBA at covering the spread.

BetOnline.com lists the OVER/UNDER at a tentative 223.5 total points in a game that looks to be a high scoring affair. The OVER is 20-12 on the season when Golden State plays on the road. The total has also gone over in four of Orlando's last five games.
