What to Know

The Golden State Warriors are 22-6 against the Cleveland Cavaliers since December of 2015, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success Sunday. Golden State will take on Cleveland at 8:30 p.m. ET at Chase Center after having had a few days off. The Cavaliers will be strutting in after a victory while the Warriors will be stumbling in from a loss.

Golden State was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap this past Thursday as they fell 101-96 to the New Orleans Pelicans. Shooting guard Jordan Poole wasn’t much of a difference maker for Golden State; Poole finished with 11 points on 3-for-14 shooting in his 32 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, Cleveland had enough points to win and then some against the Portland Trail Blazers this past Friday, taking their matchup 114-101. It was another big night for Cleveland’s point guard Darius Garland, who shot 5-for-8 from beyond the arc and finished with 26 points and six dimes.

The Warriors are the favorite in this one, with an expected 8.5-point margin of victory. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past three games, so buyers beware.

Golden State is now 29-9 while the Cavaliers sit at 22-17. Two defensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Golden State have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 42.50%, which places them first in the league.
