Golden State Warriors Betting
The Golden State Warriors went to the NBA All-Star break with a four-game skid. They were not able to maintain the momentum they had during their victories over the Washington Wizards and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Andrew Wiggins became the main guy for the team all of a sudden and it is up to him to carry this team. Eric Paschall has become a solid contributor while Draymond Green has always been there to guide the younger players. This Warriors team has been the bottom-dwellers and with them out of the playoff picture, they are finding something that they can carry on for the next season when they get the splash brothers back.
Players to Watch: A. Wiggins SG 3 GP 3 GS 33 MIN 23 PTS 0.3 OR 2.3 DR 2.7 REB 4 AST 2.3 STL 1.7 BLK 2.7 TO 2.3 PF 1.5 AST/TO 25.4 PER
E. Paschall PF 50 GP 24 GS 26.7 MIN 13.2 PTS 1.4 OR 3.3 DR 4.7 REB 1.7 AST 0.6 STL 0.2 BLK 1.5 TO 2.1 PF 1.1 AST/TO 13.74 PER
D. Green PF 41 GP 41 GS 29.1 MIN 8.3 PTS 0.6 OR 5.8 DR 6.4 REB 6.2 AST 1.4 STL 0.8 BLK 2.3 TO 2.6 PF 2.7 AST/TO 12.73 PER
