Warriors underdogs for second straight game vs. Pacers

The Golden State Warriors have been bitten by the injury bug as of late, and it has really put a damper on how they have played as of late.

It has also put a damper on how they are looked upon by the Sportsbooks and for the second game in a row, they will be considered underdogs.

In the last game against the Utah Jazz, they were 8.5 point underdog at home, and they weren’t able to cover that spread losing 110-91. All the injuries finally caught up with them on the offensive end and it is what ultimately did them in.

In terms of Tuesday’s game against the Indiana Pacers, they are going to be shorthanded again. Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Omri Casspi¬†are doubtful for this game.

Quinn Cook, who has filled in nicely for Curry, is dealing with a left knee contusion but he is also probable for this game. If he wasn’t able to go, this line would probably move even farther towards the Pacers because he has been the reason the Warriors have even stayed afloat during this period.

This is a big game for both teams but probably a bigger game for the Pacers. They are in a logjam in the Eastern Conference and fighting for playoff positioning.

For the Warriors, they are all but locked in the second spot in the Western Conference.
