In spite of Houston's historic season, the Golden State Warriors are still seen as the team to beat, as they have been on one of the greatest runs of any team in National Basketball Association history. As for the total, the number sits at 225 at the majority of online sportsbooks.

Less than 48 hours after he scored 40 points in a loss to Portland, Durant again tried unsuccessfully to will his team to victory, posting 39 points and 12 rebounds in 39 minutes.

LeBron James produced 24 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, but his Cavaliers lost for the fourth time in six games.

For the second game in a row, Durant didn't get enough support.

Even without Butler, the Timberwolves are not having issues scoring.

Minnesota is 2-3 ATS with 4 overs and 1 under over their last five games. With just 15 games left, however, the Warriors are starting to finally have to toss aside the noise, and put together some iteration of the championship squad they are.

The four-time NBA All-Star has made a huge difference in his first season in Minnesota, as the Timberwolves have already won seven more games than past year. Kevin Durant finished the game with a team-high 40 points against their last opponent, the blazers.

Golden State shot just 41 percent from the field, including 28 percent from three. In 2016, those small things were the over-reliance on Steph to bail out bad defensive habits, a bench that fell victim to the lack of shooting and shot creation, a coaching staff unwilling to make adjustments quick enough, and a sudden cold spell from consistent spot-up shooters like Harrison Barnes. Their weakest areas are offensive rebounds per game (#28), turnovers per game (#28) and steals per game (#12).

The good news: With two days off, the Warriors could be close to completely healthy for Wednesday's home game against the Lakers. Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis, Karl-Anthony Towns, Jimmy Butler, LaMarcus Aldridge, Paul George, and Russell Westbrook are just some of the All-Star level talent on these teams that have the potential to knock out the Rockets and Warriors. This guy is a career 27 point per game scorer, Durant could average 30 in his sleep...

Following the Warriors' 109-103 road loss Sunday night in Minnesota, Kevin Durant told reporters that it is "weird" for the Warriors to play without injured co-star Stephen Curry.
