Golden State Warriors
The Warriors certainly remember the last defeat against the Nuggets. This season they score an average of 116 points per match (the best team in the league in this area), but against Denver they could only score 81 points, even though they played on their own. The fact that the Warriors played without curry is no justification for one of the weakest games of Golden State in the last few seasons, in terms of attack. From the three-point line, they were catastrophic (3/27) and 81 points scored was by far the weakest performance this season. In addition, in the match ended her positive series of eleven victories in a row.
All these are the reasons why the Warriors absolutely want to reciprocate. Currently, they have 32 wins and 8 losses on the account and are in a series of four wins. The injured Durant has missed the last two matches and is also questionable for this duel. Curry is in great shape and has averaged 36 points in the last four duels (58% throw, three throw 54%). In the match against the Clippers, he scored 45 points in three quarters of the match he played on the floor.
The Nuggets have shown in the final duel against the Warriors that they can play against the current champion good defense and although they had to do without curry. However, the question is whether they can repeat this or at least stop the warriors’ throwing distance. It’s important to remember that the hosts will be highly motivated to play this match, while the Nuggets suffered an unexpected 98-106 defeat to Sacramento before the Oakland match. The Nuggets have 21 wins and 18 losses and are still in the top 8 of the Western Conference. However, they have only celebrated twice in the last five duels.
Center player Jokic is not up to par and currently plays better in the area of assists. He nearly caused an incident in the last duel of these teams when opposing player, Green, hit Jokic’s elbow in the face and went down. The Nuggets Miss Millsap in fourth position. With Jokic on center position they have the advantage, but the Nuggets will have to try first and foremost to stop the Warriros’ throw-out if they want to get the result.
