Pick ATS: Warriors -12.5
These are currently two of the top five teams in the league in covering against the spread this season. The Warriors won the previous two matchups between these squads by eight and 21 points, respectively, this year and with no SGA, they should be able to role once again. Lay it with Golden State.
Over/Under: Over 210
Golden State has put up 120+ points in five of its last six games and should be able to put up enough to push the over even if the Thunder clock in a sub-100 point performance. Take the over.
