This a game where the Warriors are looking to get some confidence back after dropping two straight. It’s not looking good without a proper center, but luckily, the Hawks’ Al Horford is out with a stomach virus.
Devin Harris is out as well, which means the Warriors will have to attack Jeff Teague so he gets tired. He is the piece to the game, but he can’t do it all for 48 minutes. The lack of another backup PG will seriously hurt the Hawks.
