16-2 is such a huge accomplishment for Golden State so early into the season, we the fans couldn't be happier. It's been a little over a month of playing basketball and there's still a lot of work to do. So lets kick back and enjoy the ride Dubs fans! Speaking of rides, the Warriors are out on the road again headed to Chicago as Golden State sets their eyes on increasing the win streak to 12 against the Bulls.
The first of two road games, the Warriors are going into Chicago owning the best record in the NBA. If they win tonight, this squad has the chance to post the longest win streak in franchise history. To take another win, we're going to need to step it up. We've lost the last 11 out of 12 games in the Windy City. The Dubs gotta have a great night in shooting and their defensive game needs to be on point - that hasn't been a problem as of late. Andrew Bogut has been averaging at least three blocks in the last four games, he's been an absolute beast in protecting our rim. Add Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala and the rest of the gang into that defensive recipe and we just might have a chance at winning.
Chicago might be our biggest challenge yet. It's going to feel like playing an all-star team with the line up they have led by Derrick Rose & Pau Gasol. The Bulls have won their last 3 out of 4 games. It's definitely going to be fun watching both Stephen Curry and Jimmy Butler (this month's Conference Players of the Month) do some damage on the court. Both deserve such high honors early in the season!
Predictions: I really want the Warriors to win tonight. "Longest streak in franchise history" will be a huge accomplishment and I know these guys can pull it off. To do this, they're going to need to make their shots, run up the score and continue to play good defense. That shouldn't be a problem. I'm predicting a win in dramatic fashion! Dubs win by one after a Curry buzzer beater on the 3-point line. Believe that!
