On Friday, April 9th the Washington Wizards and Golden State Warriors will meet for the first time this season.
Last season, the squads played twice splitting the series. The Warriors hold the all-time record between the squads with 112 victories in the team’s 196 meetings.
Bradley Beal returned to the lineup after missing five games due to a hip injury. The Wizards were thrilled to get back their superstar who helped propel the Wizards to a victory ending a four-game losing streak.
He played 30:22 scoring 30 points, with five assists along with a rebound, steal and block.
Russell Westbrook delivered yet another triple-double of 23 points, 14 rebounds, 15 assists, and a steal along with five turnovers. It was Westbrook’s 20th triple-double this season.
Davis Bertans was the third Wizards player to score 20 or more points providing that offense off the bench (22 points) connecting on six 3-pointers.
Deni Avdija (16), and Robin Lopez (19) were the other double-figure scorers.
Daniel Gafford has missed five games with a right ankle sprain and is expected to be re-evaluated on April 10th. Thomas Bryant (torn ACL) is lost for the season while Daniel Gafford is out with a right ankle injury.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors are struggling winning twice in the last nine games. They’ve navigated injuries with Stephen Curry missing six consecutive games after a tailbone injury although he’s played four of the last five matches and the Warriors have won two of those contests.
Draymond Green has been in and out of the lineup missing two of the last seven matches and playing at less than 100 percent. It’s resulted in the Dubs falling to 10th in the Western Conference standings. They are a game back of ninth and three out of the eighth spot.
They got a win in their most recent match in a gutsy 122-121 defeat of the Bucks. Curry powered Golden State to the victory behind a 41-point effort on an efficient 14 of 21 from the field, 5 of 10 from deep and 8 of 9 from the charity stripe.
He’s due to make franchise history in the coming games just 89 points off breaking Wilt Chamberlain’s scoring record of 17,783. Curry is averaging just under 30 points per game so the record should fall in three to four games.
James Wiseman delivered a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds. Kelly (19), Kent Bazemore (18), and Jordan Poole (10) were the other double-figure scorers.
Eric Paschall is dealing with a hip injury and will be out until mid-April. Klay Thompson (Achilles) and Marquese Chriss (leg) will miss the season.
