Warriors Face Rolling Hornets: Game Preview


A break in this 12 game stretch? The Hornets, out of these twelve teams, are the only team that isn’t going to the playoffs. Supposedly.

Unfortunately for the Warriors, the Hornets have beaten some really good teams, and are rolling, ever since the much anticipated return of Eric Gordon. The Hornets should be happy that they’re doing well, and the Warriors, may just add to their pile of losses.

Last time against the Hornets, almost everything was clicking for the Warriors. The Dubs, however, struggle on the glass, now more than ever without Andrew Bogut. This is a Hornet team that has the capability to inhale rebounds. Anthony Davis had 16 rebounds, and Ryan Anderson had 28 points. The Warriors, who blew another huge lead, were luckily able to preserve the win, of a final score of 103-96. Eric Gordon, a pure scorer, could change all this.

Stephen Curry is still a game-time decision for tonight, but did tweet out the following earlier today:
