Warriors vs 76ers: Another Home Game ya' know what I'm sayin'?!!

Saturdays win over the Minnesota Timberwolves was a sigh of relief for Warriors fans concerned about falling into a losing streak. We can breath a little better directing our focus to our next opponent: The Philadelphia 76ers. Now these guys need to catch a break and at 4-25, we’re not looking to give them that opportunity at the Roaracle. Our squads up for the challenge after an impressive performance against the T-wolves. Pulling for back to back wins, these 76ers should not be underestimated. Play it smart and let’s get that W tonight Warriors!

Philadelphia's in need of a win. It's going to be tough with the Warriors 11-1 record inside the Roaracle. The Sixers scoring problems aren't going to help after Saturday's performance in Utah, scoring 12 points in the first quarter. They were out rebounded and outplayed against a struggling Jazz team. Be on the look out for Michael Carter-Williams who's averaging 15.6 points per game. If this guy gets on fire, it should be fun to see his match up against the likes of  Stephen or Klay.

With the 76ers' offensive woes in scoring, the Warriors definitely have the potential to take the win in tonight's game. That is if they don't get sloppy and keep these young fellas close in the game. First things first, beat the Sixers in the rebound game. Philly was out rebounded 55-44 on Saturday against Utah. Second, out score 'em fast and furious. Leave that to Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson early in the game. Lastly, let's get everyone involved tonight. Our starters shouldn't have to play 45+ minutes against a struggling team. This can be one of those nights where guys like Shaun Livingston and Leandro Barbosa can throw up some crazy numbers.

Overall, I'm predicting a solid victory for Golden State. Let Stephen Curry do his thing and run the floor. His partner in crime Klay is gonna light up the 3-point line and let's not forget our "Ultimate" Warrior Draymond Green whose hustle has been appreciated from the team and fans alike. I got dibs that Drayond and Marreese Speights are tonight's x-factors. Control the tempo of the game, no careless mistakes and it'll be a "Dubs All Day" kind of night for the Warriors.
