The Golden State Warriors avoided their first three-game losing streak since 2013 by topping the New York Knicks 112-105 on Sunday, and the Durant-less Dubs will look to keep the momentum rolling against the Atlanta Hawks in Georgia when they play in the second half of a back-to-back set tonight. Sportsbooks opened the Hawks as 6.5-point home underdogs with a total of 216.5.

After making a decent push prior to the All-Star break, the Hawks are starting to slide down the Eastern Conference standings after dropping five of their last seven. The Hawks now lead the Indiana Pacers by only two games for the fifth spot in the East.
The Warriors sharpshooting pair of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have struggled since Durant went down last week, as they were a combined 11-for-64 from downtown prior to yesterday’s tilt but snapped out of it with 31 points for Curry and 29 for Thompson. Golden State still leads San Antonio by 2 1/2 games for the NBA’s best record.
Golden State simply hasn’t been getting the job done when it comes to covering the spread. The Warriors are 0-6 ATS in their last six.
UNDER bettors who have been tailing the Hawks of late are profiting, as Dwight Howard and company have gone below the total in six of their past eight affairs.
