Warriors Looking Forward: “Slimmer margin for error” vs. Jazz, Trail Blazers
With the upcoming back-to-back games against Utah Jazz and Portland Trail Blazers before the NBA All-Star game and weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina, Golden State has “a lot on tap” this week, according to beat writer Mark Medina.
“It’ll be interesting to see how focused and locked in the Warriors are for these final two games. They’ve won 15 of their past 16 games, so everything’s good. But in the Warriors last two wins against Phoenix, against Miami, they have gotten off to a slow start.”
Draymond Green, who won’t be playing in Saturday’s NBA All-Star Game, admitted that some players may be thinking more about their vacations as the league’s “dog days” approach. Klay Thompson and teammate Kevin Durant will be playing on Team LeBron during the Feb. 17 All-Star game, against Steph Curry.
Curry will play against his brother Seth on Team Giannis during the game, which serves as a homecoming for the pair. Stephen and Seth Curry’s father played 10 seasons for the Charlotte Hornets.
Before that though, Medina said the Dubs face “slimmer” margins for error in their upcoming games against Utah Jazz and Portland Trailblazers following their 120-118 win against Miami Heat at Oracle Arena.
