Watch on: ESPN
Spread: Golden State -6½
Moneyline: Golden State -260
Total O/U: 233

After losing three consecutive games, the Denver Nuggets, like most teams trying to get out of a losing funk, caught a break when they took their beleaguered form to Los Angeles where they feasted on a Lakers’ squad in complete disarray and proceeded to lift their spirits by snapping their 3-game losing streak in a 16-point win over Los Angeles. They will attempt to maintain that winning rhythm to Oakland as they get ready to square off in a huge showdown against the Golden State Warriors set to be contested Friday night at the Oracle Arena in the Bright Side of the Bay.

The Nuggets may also have caught the reigning NBA defending champions sleeping at the wheel of late with the Warriors losing three of their last four games including a 128-95 pasting at the hands of the Celtics on Tuesday and at home to boot. If there is something amiss with the Warriors or perhaps they are just waiting to get in playoff activation, there has to be a sense of urgency as Denver is breathing down their necks for the No. 1 seed in the West. The Warriors enter this affair as a 6½-point home favorite, according to Bovada Sportsbook, with the total sitting at 233 points.

Prediction:
Klay Thompson should be on hand for Friday’s caper which is welcome news for the Warriors, who have definitely missed his peripheral shooting prowess. However, even with Thompson in the mix, the Warriors have been atrocious against the spread of late going 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games and 1-7 against the line in their last 8 home games. Granted, the debacle against Boston should spark the inner blaze in the Warriors’ gut but Denver should follow in on the Celtics’ footsteps and give Golden State all they can handle. Take points +6½ and Nuggets and the over.

Aengus NBA Prediction: Denver +6½
Total O/U: Over 233
