On Thursday, April 15th the Cleveland Cavaliers play host to the Golden State Warriors in their second and final meeting this season. In the first match on February 15th, the Dubs won 129-98.
Last season, the squads played once with the Warriors winning that match and currently possess a seven-game win streak versus the Cavaliers. Golden State holds the all-time record having won 63 matches of the 115 played.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors continue to ascend the ladder having surpassed the Spurs for the ninth spot and are now a single game back of the eighth-seeded Memphis Grizzlies.
The four and a half games between them and sixth feels like a big gulf to cross with only 17 games remaining. Until you do a deeper dive into the Warriors’ schedule of 17 games in the stretch run.
Ten of the 17 games are versus current lottery-seeded teams as well as the eighth and seventh-seeded Grizzlies and Mavericks!
Factor in Stephen Curry is on fire. He followed up his 53 point effort versus the Nuggets with 42 against the Oklahoma City Thunder including an insane 11 triples. For inquiring minds, that’s a 68.7% efficiency rate from the perimeter.
Here’s the kicker — he did that damage in 29 minutes!
Draymond Green registered his fourth triple-double of the campaign with 12 points, 10 rebounds, 16 assists plus three steals, and two blocks.
Jordan Poole (17), Andrew Wiggins (16 points), Kent Bazemore (15), and Gary Payton (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
The Warriors are continuing to get more opinions on James Wiseman’s torn meniscus while Kelly Oubre Jr. is out with a sore wrist.
With the Hornets missing four of their six starters the Cavaliers took advantage in spite of missing their star guard Collin Sexton who was out due to a groin injury.
Fortunately, Jarrett Allen returned after missing the last eight games in the concussion protocol program and looked like he never missed a step scoring 15 points and grabbing eight rebounds.
It was Taurean Prince who led the scoring for the Cavs though with a season-high 25 points including connecting on six of his eight 3-pointers.
Veteran Kevin Love registered his third double-double of the season with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Darius Garland manned the backcourt posting 17 points and seven assists.
Cleveland announced they have inked Lamar Stevens to a multi-year contract before the game.
Collin Sexton (groin), Damyean Dotson (knee), and Dylan Wyndler (knee) have missed two, seven, and nine games respectively with tall out on Wednesday. They all missed the game Wednesday and there is no word if any of them wil return on Thursday.

Free Golden State Warriors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction:
While the Cavs have three wins in their last five matches and have feasted on other lottery teams whoever is tasked with guarding Stephen Curry better be ready to run around screens all night long.
Even if the Cavs triple-team the Dub’s sniper the way he’s shooting the ball I’m not sure anyone can stop him.
