Because of time constraints this article may be a little shorter than usual. I actually debated skipping my predictions for today because of my busy schedule, but then I remembered my motto of “no days off.” Here we have a very succinct, and to the point, playoff prediction for tonight as the Warriors look to even the series after getting embarrassed in Game 3.
Golden State Warriors @ Oklahoma City Thunder
Not a whole lot went right for the Warriors in Game 3: they lost the rebound battle 52-38, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson were the only players to score in double figures, Draymond Green posted a stat line of 6 points, 3 assist, and 4 rebounds, and they allowed Westbrook and Durant to combine for 63 points on efficient shooting. But I refuse to count them out in tonight’s game, or even the series for that matter. We have seen teams get blown out in one game and then fight back to win the next many times this postseason. Just some examples are the Thunder winning Game 2 against the Spurs and the Raptors beating the Cavs in Game 3. I think the Warriors have a much better game offensively and send the series back to Golden State tied up. I’m taking the Warriors as the one point favorite. Looking at one stat specifically, the Thunder are 1-6 in their last 7 games after winning as an underdog.
