They are the fifth best three point shooting team in the league hitting 37% from beyond the arc.

At 3:30PM Eastern Time on ABC TV the Golden St Warriors will host the Houston Rockets. Golden St is lined as a -13 point wagering favorite with the over under line set at 225 points. The Rockets finished at 41-41 on the year and defended poorly. The Warriors crushed Memphis in the regular season finale to win a record 73rd game during the regular season.

On ESPN at 7PM Eastern Time the Atlanta Hawks are home to face the Boston Celtics. The Hawks are favored by -5 points with the over under set at 204 ½ points. The Celtics drop two of their final three games of the season to lose home court advantage in the first round. The Hawks defended well limiting opponents to 43.2% shooting.

The late night game begins at 9:30PM Eastern Time on ESPN as the Oklahoma City Thunder will host the Dallas Mavericks. OKC is favored by -12 points with the total of 210 ½ points. Billy Donovan makes his debut in the playoffs. The first year head coach guided the Oklahoma City Thunder to the third seed in the Western conference at 55-27 overall. Dallas looked like a lottery team just a few weeks ago with an aging roster and the losses piling up. With Utah and Houston fading the Mavericks got hot late and earned the seventh seed.
