After an embarrassing loss to the Lakers on Sunday, the Golden State Warriors get an immediate chance to redeem themselves Monday night against the Orlando Magic. The Dubs are currently riding a 44 game home winning streak and can break the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls record for consecutive regular season wins at home with a victory over Orlando.
Golden State is 5-0 after a loss this season and 14-1 when playing in the second game of a back-to-back. The Warriors are big 14.5 home favorites against a Magic team who have covered the spread in 56% of their games this season. Check out the highlights from the last meeting between Golden State and Orlando back on February 25th:
According to GSWStats, the Dubs are coming off their worst three-point shooting game of the season (4 of 30, 13.3%) after Sunday's performance against the Lakers. As Rusty Simmons of the SF Chronicle reports, the Warriors are not wasting any time getting back in the gym.
Warriors have a shootaround Monday before their game against Orlando -- the 1st time they've had a session prior to 2nd game of back-to-back— Rusty Simmons (@Rusty_SFChron) March 7, 2016
Virtual sports book BetOnline lists Monday night's tentative OVER/UNDER line at 224 total points. Surely the Warriors will want to make a statement against the Magic after such a poor performance in their last game. The total has gone over in six of Orlando's previous nine games according to OddShark.com.

Warriors were 26/53 on contested shots. 11/39 on uncontested. Maybe Byrons onto something. Don't guard GSW— sam esfandiari (@samesfandiari) March 7, 2016
