The NBA season is back tonight, and we go straight in early on this time with a pick in order to try and take advantage of some poor lines early on.
GS Warriors -7.5 to beat MIN T’Wolves @ 1.78 (888Sport) – 3 points
The Golden State Warriors are looking to continue their great start to the season, where they have gone 9-0. The Warriors are leading the NBA with 115 points per game being scored and their offence has been led well by Steph Curry who is averaging 32 points per game for the season, and is proving to everyone why he was the MVP last season, by taking his game to the next level. His supporting cast of Green, Barnes, Thompson, Iguadola, Livingston & Barbosa have really chipped in and ensured that the scoring level doesn’t drop no matter who is on the floor. Luke Walton has done well to lead the team, reminding them constantly in timeouts and in training sessions that they are the champions and everyone is out to beat them, and they are the ones who need make a statement and put the pressure on the opposition. The Warriors showed this season against teams like Houston, Memphis, Detroit, LA Clippers among some decent defensive teams; that they can easily beat them while covering the spread in 6 out of the 9 games.
The T’Wolves haven’t faced a solid opponent other than Atlanta, Miami and Chicago in their young season so far, and some how sneaked out victories against Atlanta and Chicago (in OT) which gives confidence to this young team that they can go far if they able to put their talent together and working it well. What doesn’t bode well for them is that they take on a solid defensive team and a superb offensive team in Golden State tonight. The Wolves players are still young and still have to understand how to play defence at this level. The Wolves have lost 9 out of their last 10 games against Golden State Warriors, losing by an average of more than 10 points. They have their 2 best players in Rubio and Wiggins dealing with knee injuries and are both probably to play, but even then should not be at their 100% to give Towns enough support to win.
I am back the Warriors to continue their good run and put in a solid performance tonight.
