The Golden State Warriors can’t buy a win on the road this season, starting 0-7, so they will gladly take a home game on the second leg of a back-to-back on Monday night. 

Golden State hosts Keldon Johnson and the San Antonio Spurs, who have cooled off considerably after a hot start. The Spurs did beat a very shorthanded Bucks team in their last game. 

After losing to the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night, Golden State has some serious soul-searching to do. The team doesn’t have enough proven help around Steph Curry right now, and the Kings may have found a blueprint to slowing him down, doubling him on every touch on Sunday. 

Does Gregg Popovich’s team have what it takes to slow down Steph?

Spurs vs. Warriors Prediction and Pick

The Spurs started the season 5-2, but they have come back to earth rather quickly, losing five of their last six games. 

This should be a bounce-back spot for the Warriors, but it’s possible Steve Kerr decides to sit some of his veterans on the back-to-back. 

If that is the case, Curry is the main guy to be concerned about for Golden State, as the team has struggled when he's off the floor. The Warriors are -22.1 points per 100 possessions when Steph sits this season. 

For that reason, I’m not comfortable laying anything with Golden State, but I do like the OVER in this game. 

The Warriors have been terrible on the defensive end, ranking 27th in the league in defensive rating. Only the Spurs (28th), Houston Rockets and Detroit Pistons have been worse. 

So, we're getting two teams that don’t want to defend and play top five paces in the NBA facing off? 

Over city. 

If Curry plays, the Warriors’ offense should be even better tonight to help push this total past 233.5.
