We’re actually a bit surprised that the oddsmakers have lined the ‘total’ so high to open this series. Most are going to look at what the Warriors were able to do against the Denver Nuggets and think that this series should be a slam dunk for the ‘over’ every step of the way, but we really aren’t all that sure. Remember that over the course of the last two games of that series against an offensive-minded team, the Warriors only scored a total of 192 points. The Spurs held the Los Angeles Lakers to an average of just 85.3 points per game. Granted, we know that Golden State is going to score more than that, but is this a team that is really going to average much more than perhaps 95 points per game in the series? We really doubt it when push comes to shove. Head Coach Gregg Popovich has been scheming for the better part of a week for how to slow down G Stephen Curry and the Warriors, and we have to think that he has come up with the plan to do just that. In the end, this opening game is one where one team will get into the 100s and one team might not even come all that close. That being said, we never count out the Warriors, so we’ll take the ‘under’ instead of backing San Antonio, though we are convinced that both are winners more often than not.
