Golden State has lost three of their last four games. Last Tuesday’s game in Oakland was especially brutal – with the Celtics beating them by 33 points.
They are hosting the Denver Nuggets tonight and it’s important that they “bring it” not only for their fans, but a loss will mean a tie with the Nuggets for 1st place in the Western Conference (Golden State is currently ranked 1st, Denver’s in 2nd place).
Tonight will see the return of Klay Thompson (an inflamed knee prevented him from playing the last two games). Kevon Looney also missed the last two games because of a strained groin. He and Shaun Livingston (who did not play on Tuesday due to neck spasms) are both good to go for tonight. Damian Jones is expected to be out until May with a torn pectoral muscle.
