The Warriors are simply a different beast when they have their fans cheering behind them. Golden State shot 56.1% from the floor in both games 1 & 2 and averaged 119 points scored. Keep in mind head coach Steve Kerr's team also posted the eighth-highest average point total at home during the regular season, too (113.8).

Meanwhile, Dallas is allowing 111.3 points on the road during the postseason. Look for Stephen Curry to get going early in this one and drain some shots from beyond the arc. As long as the Mavericks avoid a blowout, the Warriors should have no trouble reaching 112 points.
