Warriors Looking Unstoppable
If there was one team that is looking like a serious title contender early on, it would be the Warriors. Steve Kerr’s squad has gone an impressive 17-2, defeating some very solid organizations along the way including the Sixers, Lakers, Clippers, Bulls, Hornets, and most recently, the Blazers.
Golden State improved to 9-0 in November on home court with Friday’s victory, which was another convincing performance. Steph erupted for a team-high 32, while Andrew Wiggins poured in 25 points and Jordan Poole had 14.
The Dubs usually win a lot of games because of their stellar three-point shooting, but that wasn’t exactly the case in this contest. They shot just 32% from downtown (12-for-37) but instead, dominated in the paint, outscoring Portland 64-42.
It was a very well-rounded attack for the Warriors, with their entire starting five finishing in double-digits in scoring. The tempo and flow was also tremendous, dishing out a total of 31 assists and finding numerous good looks from all over the court.

Draymond Green collected 12 dimes on his own, while Curry tallied eight. One of Golden State’s notable strengths this season has been owning the glass and they did just that, outrebounding the Blazers 48-37.
Although Kerr’s group is showing out on a nightly basis, these next three games will be a good test.
After facing the Clippers on Sunday, the Dubs take on the Suns in back-to-back games next week. Phoenix is riding a mind-boggling 16-game winning streak at the moment. Golden State is 6-1 on the road thus far, with their only loss coming on November 14th against LaMelo Ball and the Hornets.

PG, Jackson Keeping Clippers Afloat
It was always going to be tough to stay very competitive throughout the course of an entire campaign without Kawhi Leonard, but the Clippers have fared relatively well to this point.
They’re 11-8 which is good for fifth in the West, with Reggie Jackson really stepping up his production alongside franchise cornerstone Paul George.
While PG is averaging 25.6 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 5.2 dimes, Jackson is proving to be the second star that LA needs with Kawhi on the shelf. The guard is posting 18.4 points per night after averaging only 10.7 last season.
Jackson has a true shooting percentage of 51.2 as well, starting all 19 games for the Clippers.
On a night like Friday, his brilliance proved to be huge. Against his former team in Detroit, Jackson rose to the occasion, dropping a team-high 21 points in 33 minutes of action.
George had a quiet night with a mere 12 points, but in games like this, Jackson really made it clear how valuable he is to Ty Lue’s squad when their superstar isn’t firing on all cylinders.
Brought energy from the jump.

Los Angeles led by as many as 29 in this contest, but their defense took the foot off the gas pedal in the final quarter, allowing the Pistons to embark on a 21-8 run.
The Clips typically pride themselves on containing their opponents, ranking second in the league in defensive rating. Lue’s team must bring it in every way imaginable on Sunday in order to limit a lethal Warriors offense that possesses a lot more weapons than just Curry.
Warriors vs Clippers Prediction
The way LA ended their last game was definitely concerning, especially since the Pistons are not exactly a great team. While the Clippers are 9-4 at the Staples Center, Golden State is just looking far too good right now.
Expect Steph to have another huge night and lead his team to their seventh consecutive win. Take the Dubs to cover the spread.
Pick: Golden State Warriors -2 (-110)
