What to Know

The Golden State Warriors will be playing at home against the Orlando Magic at 10:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Chase Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W’.

The Warriors’ recent rough patch got a bit rougher on Saturday after their third straight loss. They fell 132-122 to Dallas. The oddsmakers set the bar high with a 243-point over/under, but they still managed to beat it.

Despite the defeat, the Warriors got a solid performance out of Chris Paul, who went 6 for 9 from beyond the arc en route to 24 points and 6 assists. As a matter of fact, that’s the most points Paul has scored all season.

Even though they lost, the Warriors were smashing the offensive glass and finished the game with 16 offensive rebounds (they’re ranked first in offensive rebounds per game overall). They easily outclassed their opponents in that department as the Mavericks only pulled down six offensive rebounds.

Meanwhile, Orlando was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Sunday as they fell 112-107 to Phoenix.

The loss doesn’t tell the whole story though, as several players had good games. One of the most active was Paolo Banchero, who scored 28 points along with nine rebounds and seven assists.

Golden State’s defeat dropped their record down to 15-17. As for Orlando, their loss dropped their record down to 19-13.

Keep an eye on the arc in Tuesday’s game: The Warriors have made nailing deep shots look easy this year this season, having averaged 14.8 threes per game. It’s a different story for the Magic, though, as they’ve been averaging only 10 threes per game. Given the Warriors’ sizeable advantage in that area, the Magic will need to find a way to close that gap.

Looking ahead, the Warriors are the favorite in this one, as the experts expect to see them win by 3.5 points. Anyone thinking of taking them against the spread should keep this in mind: the team hasn’t covered the last three times they’ve played Orlando.
