Through 1 Quarter

The experts predicted a victory for the Golden State Warriors, but it’s no sure thing at this point. After one quarter neither squad has the game in the bag, but Golden State leads 31-28 over the Orlando Magic. The Dubs’ offense has come from several players so far.

The Warriors and Orlando have certainly played as if they’re avenging a loss, because they are. Golden State is out front, but they can’t get complacent.

Who’s Playing

Orlando @ Golden State

Current Records: Orlando 5-19; Golden State 19-4

What to Know

The Golden State Warriors will play host again and welcome the Orlando Magic to Chase Center, where tip-off is scheduled for 10 p.m. ET on Monday. If the contest is anything like Orlando’s 124-120 victory from their previous meeting in February, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.

The point spread favored the Warriors this past Saturday, but luck did not. They were within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap as they fell 112-107 to the San Antonio Spurs. Golden State’s loss came about despite a quality game from point guard Stephen Curry, who had 27 points and five assists along with eight rebounds.

The Magic lost a heartbreaker to the Houston Rockets when they met in April, and they left with a heavy heart again this past Friday. Orlando fell in a 118-116 heartbreaker. The top scorer for Orlando was point guard Cole Anthony (26 points).

This next matchup looks promising for Golden State, who are favored by a full 16 points. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (14-5-1), so they might be worth a quick bet.

Golden State is now 19-4 while the Magic sit at 5-19. Two stats to keep an eye on: The Warriors have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 42.30%, which places them first in the league. Less enviably, Orlando has only been able to knock down 42% percent of their shots, which is the third lowest field goal percentage in the league. So the cards are definitely stacked against Orlando.
