WHO AM I LOOKING AT?
FREE SELECTION: Dr. Ed Meyer | NBA SidesFree pick822 GSW -6.0 (-110) 5Dimes vs 821 PHIAnalysis:
The Sixers beat the Grizzlies 99-89 in Memphis in their last game. It was a very unusual game. The Sixers guards shot poorly, as Jrue Holiday was 5-of-16 from the field and Evan Turner was 0-4. Late defensive substitute Dorrell Wright shot 8-of-11 for 28 points and Spencer Hawes came off the Bench to shot 9-of-14 to key the come-from-behind victory. The Sixers took advantage of a flat Memphis team. The Warriors should be ready for them.
First of all, Philadelphia is 0-6 ATS (-10.2 ppg) as a dog off a win in which they trailed by 10+ points. Second, and perhaps more importantly, the Sixers are 0-9 ATS (-9.4 ppg) with rest after a win in which Evan Turner shot worse than 33% from the field and 0-5 ATS (-13.4 ppg) on the road after a win in which Jrue Holiday shot worse than 33% from the field. Compelling evidence indeed.
The Warriors are off a 94-83 win over the Jazz and when Golden St is playing defense, they are very tough to beat. The Warriors are 9-0 ATS (+9.0 ppg) at home with at most one day of rest after a double-digit win in which their held their opponent to at least 15 points fewer than expected. In addition, Golden St is 7-0 ATS (+7.3 ppg) at home with at most one day of rest after a game on the road in which their field goal attempt per turnover ratio was at least eight.
Finally, the Warriors are 5-0-1 ATS (+6.6 ppg) after a win on the road in which Stephen Curry was their high scorer.
Lay the points.
