We knew the situation was going to come to a head after ESPN/ABC suffered two major let downs in two subsequent weeks" of Saturday night programming. First, Kerr rested all of our best players for a prime time matchup against the Spurs that had been heavily advertised; then the Cavs matched the affront by sitting some of their all stars for the marquee matchup the following Saturday. Well, Commissioner Adam Silver set down his foot as many executives do: by sending a sternly worded memo. No more resting players for no reason...
Andre Iguodala (left hip strain) is out for tonight's game at Dallas. Kevin Durant (left knee), Damian Jones (D-League assignment) also out.— Warriors PR (@WarriorsPR) March 21, 2017
I'm no doctor, but my prognosis on Andre's hip is that he'll be good to go for our next game. Just a guess.
Now, let's get to it. Steph versus Seth. Barnes on Barnes action! DIRK!
I feel pretty good about our chances tonight. But mostly, I'm just excited for more Warriors basketball, especially when they play like they did last night! The Dubs hit bottom with a painful three game losing streak, but seem to have righted the ship. After a resounding win against the Thunder, the Mavericks will be another tough, but not insurmountable test that the Warriors should be able to pass.
No Iguodala is going to hurt - he's averaging around 26 minutes on the season and has played an increasingly significant role since KD went down. On the plus side though, this means lots of Barnes on Barnes to go with your Curry on Curry matchup.
Hey, did you know we can add polls into these things again? Well we can. Thanks Vox media! This is almost as good as the ending of Teen Wolf!
Who will lead the Warriors in scoring tonight?
This poll is closed
as long as we win, who cares?
