This is the game that we should see Steph Curry return to the lineup. The Warriors can definitely win without him but it is a different team for sure.
Detroit has been playing good ball and gets the Warriors coming off a loss in this one, and at home, maybe they can spoil Curry’s return.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors are the best team in the league, when healthy. They get a little closer to that in this one with Steph Curry rejoining the lineup. He is not only one of the best players in the league but he gives Kevin Durant a chance to take a night off.
Lately Durant has been other worldly. He scored 51 against Toronto in their overtime loss and that was after games of 44 and 49 points. Not only that but he has been clutch too, making two threes in the final minute to force OT against the Raptors.
Assuming Curry is in form they will have three players who can bomb from anywhere on the court. Klay Thompson really upped his production with Curry out and now he will see even better looks, per usual. As a third option he is deadly.
Golden State will need some presence up front in this one because that is the real strength of the Pistons. They patch things together up there but Draymond Green is still out with an injury.
You can definitely see how there could be some “growing pains” to reintegrating Curry but as long as he is right I wouldn’t worry about it.
The Pistons have won three in a row heading into Friday nights game against Chicago, which was an easy win. NOw they host the defending champs who had a day of rest after their exciting tilt against Toronto. This is just their second back to back of the season.
While Golden State is excellent on the perimeter the Pistons need to take advantage of their inside players Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin. Griffin especially keeps expanding his game. Between the two of them they need to dominate the glass.
Reggie Jackson is a gunner. That can be both awesome and terrible when playing a team like Golden State. He has the ability to go mano y mano with Curry but that is a dangerous proposition. Mostly because Curry is that good and Jackson can’t usually keep it up.
