The betting odds from this NBA contest have the home side Golden St Warriors favored by -3 point with an over under line set at 201 ½ points. Those who wager on Golden St on the money line will lay -155 odds with the return on San Antonio at +135 odds on the money line.
A check of the injuries from this contest and an impact player is out. Point guard Tony Parker left the Clipper game on Tuesday with a shin injury and he is expected to sit out Thursday night’s game. The Warriors defensive specialist Andre Iguiodala has returned to the Warriors lineup after missing significant time with a hamstring problem. We have one start out for San Antonio and one star back in the lineup for the Warriors. The teams first met back on November 8th with the Spurs posting the 76-74 home victory against the Golden St Warriors as a -5 ½ point wagering favorite. That night Tony Parker played 33 ½ minutes and had 18 points and four assists and shot 7 of 14 from the floor. Most of the Spurs shot poorly as the team ended the night hitting on 39% on the field despite Tony Parker making 50% of his shots. This is one of those statement games for Golden St as they look to revenge a November loss and look for redemption because it was San Antonio who knocked the Warriors out of the playoffs. Remember that series was tied at 2-2 then the Spurs won the final two games to make the Western conference finals. The Spurs are in a tough spot having played the night before at Phoenix and will be playing three games in four nights against a rested Warriors team without the services of Tony Parker at point guard. The Spurs will have their hands full guarding the good perimeter shooters of the Warriors.
With our NBA Pro Basketball pick for Thursday we will play on the Golden St Warriors -3 points against the San Antonio Spurs at the sports books.
