★★★
The Golden State Warriors continue their run towards history on Friday night as the Boston Celtics make their lone visit to Oakland. The Warriors needed double overtime to fend of the scrappy Celtics in Boston back on December 11th. A win on Friday over the Celtics would improve the Dubs' regular season home winning streak to an NBA record 55 games.

Relive the highlights from the previous meeting between Golden State and Boston which pushed the Warriors' perfect record to start to the season to 24-0:


Virtual sports book BetOnline lists the Warriors as 12.5 point favorites over the Celtics. It is the 11th straight home game that Golden State is favored by at least 10 points. However it is the first game this season in which Boston is a double digit under dog. The Celtics have not fared well against the spread as of late, covering only once in their last eight games according to OddsShark.com.

The tentative OVER/UNDER line is set at 222 total points. The UNDER is a hot bet late in the season for both teams. Six of Golden State's last seven games and four of Boston's last six have gone UNDER.
