Atlanta Hawks vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Game Predictions March 1, 2016


Is there any team that may stop the Golden State Warriors’ rampage this 2015-16 NBA season? The formidable Oklahoma City Thunder learned once again on Saturday that no lead is safe against Golden State, especially with Stephen Curry’s ability to drain game-winners from literally anywhere on the hardwood floor.

Golden State WarriorsThe Warriors are actually headed back again to Oakland to clash with the Atlanta Hawks and will appear to give their winning ways at Oracle Arena to new heights. However, Atlanta continues to be one of the more dangerous teams in the league, and the Dubs have to be cautious on Tuesday night indeed.

We pity the people who missed on the Golden State Warriors’ thrilling 121-118 overtime victory on the Thunder in Oklahoma City the 2009 Sunday. Not merely did the Warriors become the very first team to clinch a playoff berth this year, however the NBA’s current poster boy in Stephen Curry also wear a performance for the ages.

First off, Curry finished with 42 points in that game – his third-straight 40-point night in as numerous games. He also broke his own record of three’s made in a single season on Sunday, giving him a massive 288 three-pointers already with 24 games still waiting to be played. To cap it all off, Steph’s 32-foot game-winner with less than the usual second left in the OT also tied the NBA record of 12 three-pointers in a single game.

It wasn’t just Curry who had a magnificent night on Sunday, as his fellow teammates pitched rather tremendously to prevail over gritty OKC. Klay Thompson racked up 32 points (with several huge buckets late in regulation and overtime), and Draymond Green wound up with a bizarre double-double of 14 boards and 14 assists as he failed to obtain his shooting groove going.

However, the Warriors still exposed a slight chink within their armor during that game: rebounding. The Thunder out-rebounded them by way of a wide margin, 62-32, and those extra possessions ultimately gave OKC a terrific shot at finally overcoming that Golden State hump.

Still, look at the Dubs’lackluster effort on the boards on Sunday being an anomaly, because they are still currently fourth in the league with 46.3 rebounds per contest. Additionally, they’ll be dealing with the Hawks up next, who are merely ranked 28th in that department this season.

Plus, we simply can’t ignore how Golden State has owned Atlanta of late. The team has won seven of its last eight games overall against the Hawks (6-2 ATS), and we haven’t even reiterated precisely how invulnerable the Dubs have already been in the home because we all know you’re probably sick of hearing about that fact by now.
