Golden State of Mind preview: The sad state of affairs in Minnesota
The Golden State Warriors face the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight and, not mentioned in the preview, they do so coming off a win in Portland last night.
For the Warriors, this is an opportunity to maintain a rhythm before getting Kevin Durant back on Saturday, but I'll be a bit more focused on whether they can get some of their players at the top of the rotation a little bit of rest as they look ahead to the playoffs. Assuming they look to play their starters bigger minutes with Durant back in action, these next two games seem critical for finding some rest.
Thankfully, NumberFire says there's a 90% chance the Warriors win this one...so hopefully they'll follow through with a relatively easy win.
