Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr knew it wouldn’t be a seamless transition to integrate Kevin Durant into the lineup, and his team has had its fair share of struggles through the first three games of the season. The Dubs, who have yet to cover the spread, will be looking to do so against the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday.
– Shark Bites
- The Warriors are 6-1 SU in their last seven games against the Trail Blazers.
- The Warriors are 0-5 ATS in their last five games after winning the previous game in a matchup.
- The Warriors are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games on the road against the Trail Blazers.
Sportsbooks opened Golden State as 5-point favorites with an OVER/UNDER of 227.5.
You can expect the Blazers to give their sharpshooting point guard Damian Lillard a ton of looks in this one. Lillard is living up to his preseason MVP prediction by averaging 35 points and 5.3 assists for a Portland offense averaging 111.3 points.
Golden State has struggled with shooting the 3-point so far, and it’s a big reason why they’ve done so poorly at the betting window. Durant and Stephen Curry have done their part, but the rest of the team went 1-of-17 from beyond the arc in a 106-100 win over Phoenix on Sunday. Shooting guard Klay Thompson was especially poor, going 0-for-6 from downtown.
