217.5 Total Points
The Golden State Warriors continue their four-game road trip as they take on the rebuilding Miami Heat. The Dubs defeated the Heat 107-95 behind Stephen Curry’s 24 opints, nine assists and eight rebounds back on January 10th at Oracle Arena. The Warriors failed to cover the 14.5 point spread likely because they were without Klay Thompson who sat the game out to rest.
Golden State has covered the spread in five straight games and are also victors of seven straight overall. The Heat are beginning to warm up in January as well as they have posted three straight victories and have also managed to cover the spread in four of their last five games. However Golden State has covered in seven of their last eight games when playing on the road against Miami.
The over/under line has been a tough bet for the Warriors this season, who lead the NBA in both offensive and defensive efficiency rating. The total has gone under in 12 of Golden State’s last 13 games on the road as well as six of their last seven overall. The total has also gone under in four of Miami’s last six contests. Tonight’s line is currently set at 217 total points.
Head coach Steve Kerr will rest superstar sixth man Andre Iguodala tonight vs. the Heat. Backup big man David West also remains out with a fractured thumb.
Miami Heat guard and Bay Area native Tyler Johnson is questionable vs. Golden State with a shoulder injury. Johnson scored 18 points and grabbed seven rebounds in 29 minutes of action against the Warriors back on Jan. 10th.
