Over/Under Total Pick:
Neither team is known for their outstanding defensive play which we have seen in this matchup with 4 of the 6 games this season going over the posted line. The Clippers have averaged 112.5 points over the 6 games have reached 103 points or greater in 5 of the 6. The only game they failed to reach triple digits they were shorthanded without guard Chris Paul. The Warriors averaged 108 points as a host in this series and I expect more of the same from a team that has put up just under 105 points per game at home. Take the OVER 215.
