There are six teams that have beaten the Golden State Warriors this year. Yet so far, the Dubs haven’t faced any of those six teams a second time, so the opportunity for revenge has not presented itself.
That changes tonight. After losing at home to the Detroit Pistons near the beginning of the season, the Warriors are in Detroit to see the Pistons’ new arena for the first time. And to try and get some payback.
They’ll have to do it without a few key players, namely Stephen Curry, who is still out with an ankle sprain. They’ll also be without Zaza Pachulia, who exited Wednesday’s game with shoulder soreness, and will sit this one out.

Draymond Green is back after missing one game, which is good news. Still, it’s unknown who will start at point guard, and at center.

The Warriors are certainly a little banged up, but they still have a bit more talent than the Pistons, despite Detroit’s hot start to the season. Let’s see if the Dubs can get the job done tonight.
