Joes Pick To Cover The Spread

Tonight’s final game of the slate between the Mavs and Warriors should be a fun one as it features two of the hottest team’s in the league right now. Dallas just knocked off a red-hot Rockets squad and now has their own 7-game win streak, and the Warriors have rattled off four straight. Each game will be big for both teams, as Dallas will be looking to catch the Clippers in the standings, as this would mean that they would have home-court advantage in a playoff series, as they are battling for the 4th and 5th seeds. But for tonight’s game, I’m taking the Warriors to pick up the win, in what should be a game that goes right down to the wire. My pick is Golden State at -115.
