Why Bet on the Golden State Warriors?
The Warriors have been unstoppable since the start of the 2021-22 NBA season. Despite the absence of their superstar shooter Klay Thompson, we’ve seen the team deliver quality performances against playoff contenders and NBA Finals favorites.

The Warriors also have the top effective field goal percentage in the league at 55.4%. Additionally, we cannot overlook the fact that the Warriors are shooting lights out from downtown. They average 15.2 three-pointers (first).
Steve Kerr makes sure his team is on point defensively. As a team, they hold opponents to 101.8 points (third) per game. Defensive rebounding is also one of the Warriors’ strongest suits.

Stephen Curry is the heart and soul of scoring. The guard leads the team’s scoring with 28.1 points per game. Draymond Green provides him with much-needed support as the forward records a team-high 8.1 rebounds and 7.1 assists per game.
