Heavy sees the Warriors as bouncing back and winning Game 2. Game 1 brought the Warriors face to face with the reality of their own vulnerability and realize now they can lose this series. Expect a much better shooting performance from the Warriors in tonight’s game.
We still like the Thunder to keep the game close. Golden State has no answer for defending Russell Westbrook and the Thunder proved they may be the one team with enough offensive firepower to stay with the Warriors. We like the Warriors to win in a close one.
Heavy’s Pick: Golden State Warriors 108 Oklahoma City Thunder 104. Thunder +8.5. Under on the point total.
