Warriors Return From Road Trip to Face Lowly Hornets: Game Preview


 

Coming off the most successful road win in Warrior history, you think that these guys are ready to play?

The Warriors are drawing attention. Lead by David Lee, Stephen Curry, and Klay Thompson, the Warriors are once again looking to get at it and start a new winning streak. With the next games on their schedule not being that hard, the Warriors have a good opportunity to start a good streak here. Tonight, they start with the Hornets, who have been struggling as of late

The Hornets are 5-18 while the Warriors are 16-8. These are good numbers and on a night back at home, the Warriors are happy to be getting to play the Hornets. Don’t think this is an easy win, however. The Hornets, along with number 1 draft pick Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson are ready to attack and unload on a team.Luckily for the Warriors, Anthony Davis is coming off the bench because Ryan Anderson is playing at a top level. Maybe that isn’t so lucky. Either way, David Lee has some work to do.

Festus Ezeli remains a game-time decision for the Warriors with a left knee contusion.
