Fresh off of their victory against the Sixers, the Warriors are right back into action as they head into DC to take on the Wizards. Be sure and check out the awesome Q&A that Hugo Kitano and Albert Lee (from Bullets Forver) put together for us.
It's the second game of a back-to-back after a first game that taxed the Warriors a bit more than most of us were comfortable with. Sure, the end result was a double-digit victory, but it was one of the ugliest shooting nights in recent memory. Still, results matter.
With tonight's win, the Warriors are the 19th team in NBA history to tally four-straight 50-win seasons.— Warriors PR (@WarriorsPR) February 28, 2017
Remember back when we were all mad because the Warriors fought their way to 50 wins, only to miss the playoffs?
Duby Dub Dubs remembers.
The Wizards, for their part, came into the all-star break as one of the hottest teams in the NBA with an 18-2 record heading in to the break. Unfortunately for them, things have been decidedly less rosy since we've returned to action. The Wizards will come into the game tonight having dropped two straight and obviously hoping to avoid a three game skid.
In case you weren't aware, these two teams have some active, sticky hands! Hopefully Kerr won't break any clipboards, and Steph won't break any more records for missed threes or turnovers.
