The Warriors hit the road for the first time since falling to the Bucks in Milwaukee and will look to avoid 2 straight losses away from Oracle Arena.
Golden State has recovered from that loss as they’ve rattled off 5 wins, which includes an impressive Christmas Day win over the Cavaliers.
Dallas comes in with a full head of steam as they rattled off 3 straight wins and avoided looking ahead in their win on Monday over the Bucks.
The Warriors have endured no problem this season besides their lone road loss, which was quite the fluke.
However, things may be tough for them in Dallas as Steph Curry is listed as questionable for Wednesday night. Curry injured his calf in the win over Sacramento, which was the same calf that has been lingering all season long.
Curry did still put on quite the performance despite dealing with the calf injury as he put in 23 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists.
The Warriors could get even thinner as G Leandro Barbosa is schedule to miss Wednesday’s game. Barbosa has been battling a shoulder injury that has put him out 2 straight games.
Golden State does have success against the Mavericks as they’ve taken 7 straight in this head to head battle which also includes 3 wins in Dallas. They will also have a boost in terms of their coaching staff as Steve Kerr is expected to be on the bench for the road trip. While Luke Walton will remain the play caller, Kerr will at least be present.
Dallas has picked up some steam here as they’ve won 3 straight games and are getting production from a lot of different places.
The Mavs got a solid performance from G Wesley Matthews as he put in 22 points and recorded over 30 minutes of playing time for the 3rd straight game. Matthews continues to recover from achilles surgery and will be a big part of this Mavs team going forward.
Matthews increase and ability to play more minutes also comes at a very solid time. Deron Williams has missed the last 3 games as he continues to battle a hamstring injury. Williams is expected to be out on Wednesday.
Look for Dirk Nowitzki to have a bounce back performance here. He struggled in Monday’s win as he finished just 3 of 15 from the field and had a season low 7 points.

Free NBA Prediction:
This is a tough game to cap. The status of Steph Curry makes things a whole lot more difficult. Even if he does play is he 100%?
