The Golden State Warriors opened up their game against the Boston Celtics as a 2 point favorite and closed at -3.5. It took all they had to not only win the game but cover the spread on Saturday night. Golden State walked away with their 10th straight win, as they beat the Celtics 115-111. The last time Golden State lost was on January 3rd, at home to the Houston Rockets. The Warriors allowed 135 points in that game. 

In the win, Kevin Durant scored 33 points and ripped down nine rebounds, while Steph Curry added 24 points, including 15 in the second quarter. The Warriors led by two at halftime and saw their lead go up and down throughout the second half. 

In a losing cause for the Celtics, point guard Kyrie Irving dropped 32 points and also dished out ten assists. The Celtics have now dropped to 30-19 on the season, which is 5th in the Eastern Conference. Golden State has the best record in all of the National Basketball Association; as the win improved them to 35-14. 

The latest odds to win the NBA Finals were updated earlier this week with the Warriors still being the HUGE favorites. Golden State has seen vast improvement since the return of DeMarcus Cousins, but even without him, the Warriors are the team to beat. Golden State is listed at -175 to win it all, while the second-best odds belong to the Toronto Raptors, who are +750. Boston checks in third at +1000. 

Both teams will take Sunday off, as the Warriors continue on the road to take on the Indiana Pacers on Monday. The game on Monday will be the final game of the current five-game road trip for the Warriors, and also 7 of 8 games away from Oracle Arena. The Boston Celtics remain at home and hope to get back on track as they welcome the Brooklyn Nets to town.
