The Warriors look to continue their dominance at home as they’ll be without Steph Curry on Monday when they welcome in the Charlotte Hornets.
Golden State’s star G has been battling a bruised shin and aggravated it once again on Saturday.
They’ll take on a Hornets team who have dropped 8 of their last 11 thanks to some poor defense and the inability to slow teams down in transition.
While the Hornets still sit over the .500 mark, their inconsistencies on both ends are starting to become seriously alarming.
Charlotte has dropped 8 of 11 and are allowing opponents to score 111.7 over their last 3 contests, all of which have been losses. They saw the Warriors score 116 points back on Dec. 2 and will welcome the sight of Steph Curry being out on Monday.
Al Jefferson remains out as he continues to recover from knee surgery and Nicolas Batum remains day to day as he battles a toe injury. Both players have been two of the best defensive players the Hornets have had.
Charlotte’s offenses has been no better as of late. They shot just 37.3 percent from the field over the last 2 games and aren’t getting many contributions from the bench. Overall this season the Hornets are scoring 101.8 points per game.
Charlotte brings in a road record of just 4-9 SU.
The home cooking has been as real as it gets for the Warriors.
Golden State has rattled off 34 straight home wins, but got a little scare with their 111-108 overtime win against Denver on Saturday. The loss saw Steph Curry leave in the 2nd quarter, but Draymond Green continues to be the biggest asset on this Golden State team.
After dishing out 16 assists against Houston, Green finished with 29 points, 17 rebounds, and 14 assists in the win over Denver. Green has been putting up consistent numbers while Curry remains out.
The Warriors continue to lack depth though as the injury bug continues to find them. F Harrison Barnes (ankle), F James Michael McAdoo (toe), F Brandon Rush (hamstring) and C Festus Ezeli (foot) are all questionable for Monday’s contest.
Draymond Green’s triple double on Saturday was his 6th this season.
