Joes Pick To Cover The Spread

The Golden State Warriors are hoping the approaching All-Star Break won’t cool down their hot play, as they have won five straight games and are in the thick of the play-in tournament race. On the other side, the Clippers are two games out of the top spot of the Western Conference and will be without Kawhi Leonard tonight. I like the Warriors to keep things rolling at home and I am taking them at -3.5.
