Warriors Look to Start Streak vs 76ers: Game Preview

Tonight, the Warriors are looking to start a streak by winning back to back games. It’s their first look at a very young Philadelphia 76ers team that is lead by Evan Turner, and former Warrior Jason Richardson. It is also Dorell Wright’s first trip back home to the Warriors after two unsuccessful seasons with the Warriors.

The victory, for the Warriors, shouldn’t be too hard to obtain. The Sixers did start off hot, but since then they haven’t done anything spectacular. They’re currently 14-15 and 3-7 in the last 10 games.

Don’t get me wrong, most teams usually start to find their confidence against the Warriors – for some reason. Curry is averaging 25.5 PPG in the last 5 games and is on a scoring binge. For once, the Warriors are bigger, have more depth, healthier, and seem to be set.
