Although the Golden State Warriors will be missing a few regulars, tonight's game will be interesting because we'll get an even closer look at Ian Clark who will be starting in place of Klay Thompson, who's not with the team due to attending a funeral.

Clark clearly has the inside track on beating out the other camp invitees as he's been given extended look during games and earned plenty of praise from coaches and teammates alike. Along with Clark replacing Thompson, Festus Ezeli will be starting in place of Andrew Bogut.

In addition to the changes in the starting lineup, it looks like there might be some problems with the floor to make this game "interesting", according to Diamond Leung.
