The Golden State Warriors haven’t looked like themselves to start this season. Between losing on opening night to the Houston Rockets, struggling in the early stages against the New Orleans Pelicans and watching both Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry get ejected against the Memphis Grizzlies, there’s been far more drama than anyone expected.
All that said, the Dubs should prove to be fine. Even one of the greatest rosters ever assembled is allowed to get off to a slow start.
Things should start to turn around against the 0-3 Mavs.
Golden State Warriors
Against the Mavs, Golden State needs to keep its composure. It can’t have players getting ejected, and more importantly, it can’t let the Mavs gain confidence early.
In order to come out of the gate hot, the Warriors need to play efficiently in transition. The fastbreak game needs to come without turnovers, and in true Dubs fashion, it needs to come with plenty of outside looks.
Defensively, Golden State should look to make life difficult on starting rookie point guard, Dennis Smith Jr. The NC State product is a far superior athlete to Curry, and while the latter has become a respectable defender, using guys like Durant and Draymond Green to trap and hedge screens needs to be a priority.
The Mavericks have been a bad team so far this season. The Warriors have been far from perfect, but the Mavs have actually looked atrocious.
To kick off the year, they dropped a contest against the Atlanta Hawks—a franchise in the midst of a total rebuild after purging its roster this summer. They also fell to the Sacramento Kings—a team that’s going to be nowhere near the playoff hunt this season.
Then, they lost to the Houston Rockets, which is more than acceptable. But they fell by 16 points.
Against the Warriors, the Mavs are going to have to force turnovers. Golden State is prone to giveaways, so creating extra opportunities on offense (via the defense) is going to be crucial.

Free Atlanta Hawks vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
The Mavericks are looking for their first win of the season, and the Warriors are looking for a bounce-back performance.
Only one of those things will happen, and with apologies to Mark Cuban, it’s just not going to be the Mavs

Golden State will have a strong performance in this one. There isn’t likely to be any of the same drama they faced the past two contests, and there’s little reason to believe Dallas will make life difficult for the likes of Curry, Durant, Green and Klay Thompson.
Although the line hasn’t been set as of this writing, you can expect a solid double-digit win for the road Warriors.
