The final stops of the road trip are Charlotte and Detroit. The Hornets ended a four-game losing streak Monday with a win over the Magic.

Golden State Warriors
In the Warriors most recent win Kevin Durant was ejected from the game, but the true loss occurred when Stephen Curry badly twisted his ankle and left the arena on crutches.
Adding to the odd past week Shaun Livingston served his one game suspension for the run in with referee Courtney Kirkland who’ll get a week off to reconsider his part in the head butt incident.
For a team full of super stars like Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson it could be argued Draymond Green is the most valuable player on the team. He leads the team in assists (7.1) and rebounds (7.3). Moreover, Green has the best on court defense of the starting unit and the team performs the worst defensively when he sits.
Multiple media outlets report Curry will definitely miss this game and reevaluated in a couple weeks. This is the same ankle which was operated on and has caused Curry problems.
Zaza Pachulia missed the last game with a sore shoulder. Patrick McCaw took a hit to the face requiring him to leave the Pelicans game; both will be game time decisions.
The Hornets remain the most perplexing squad in the Association. Kemba Walker is a superstar whose ceiling hasn’t been tapped. Batum’s skillset checks every major statistical category. And, Dwight Howard appears to be channeling his former prowess not witnessed since his Orlando days. So, why is a team who is capable on both sides of the court four games under .500?
Part of the answer lies in Batum missing the first 12 games of the season. The other major factor is the Hornets have endured arguably the most difficult NBA schedule with 14 games against current playoff seeds.
Moreover, Charlotte played the Clippers with Blake Griffin, Memphis with a healthy Conley and the Magic when they were red hot at season start. That represents 17 tough matches out of the 22 the squad has played.

Free Golden State Warriors vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
The few areas the Hornets hold the advantage is on the boards and protecting the ball. If the Hornets are to play spoiler they’ll need to capitalize on these strengths.
Unfortunately Kemba Walker is not 100 percent as he deals with a sore shoulder. Motivation has been hard to find for the Warriors this season.
But, with Curry out for the foreseeable future and the Warriors leading the NBA in ejections perhaps it’s time they act like champions. With Livingston returning from suspension and Kevin Durant seeking to atone for another ejection plus Curry’s anticipated two week absence it all adds up to a focused Warriors effort leading to victory.
