On CBS Sports HQ, CBS Sports NBA Writer Brad Botkin joins Nick Kostos to recap the Golden State Warriors defeating the New Orleans Pelicans 113-104 in Game 5 to advance to the Western Conference Finals .

However, the Clippers have struggled against the NBA ’s top teams this season, going a combined 1-10 SU and 3-8 ATS against the Warriors , Spurs, Cavaliers , and Raptors, and remain a distant +1400 bet to advance to the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history.

Las Vegas betting odds are leaning toward a record fourth straight NBA Finals matchup featuring the same two teams.

The Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets are set to battle it out in the Western Conference finals, while the Boston Celtics secured their rematch with the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals on Wednesday night by ousting the Philadelphia 76ers.

Both the Warriors and Cavaliers are favored to emerge from their respective series, with Golden State winning two of the last three Finals against Cleveland.
