Warriors at Bucks Gamethread: Steph Curry out

New, comments

The Warriors look to bounce back with a win against the Bucks. But they will have to do so without Stephen Curry who’s being held out as a precaution to his ankle injury.

This evening’s game kicks off the season’s toughest road trip for the Golden State Warriors with one of their toughest match-ups no less.

Perhaps known best for disrupting our epic 24 game win-streak back in 2015, the lengthy Milwaukee Bucks have proven they are a force to be reckoned with.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has been on a tear this season and matches up well with Kevin Durant. The rest of the Bucks roster is littered with long-limbed players that can clog the passing lanes and their defense leads the league in holding opponents to only 7.9 fast-break points-per-game.

Those two facets are the Warriors’ bread and butter on the offensive end and that contrast will be something to keep an eye on. Especially now that Stephen Curry has been officially listed as out for the game.

Omri Casspi has also been listed as questionable due to back soreness.

However it looks like Quinn Cook has been called up. We’ll see if he ends up getting added to the active roster but the team could use the extra ball handling and shooting he provides.

Because even with Klay Thompson back in the lineup, the Warriors will most likely need other players to step up their games in order to overcome the absence of Curry.

I’m especially looking at you Patrick McCaw and Andre Iguodala.

Luckily for us, even when the Warriors’ offense gets stifled, they always stand a chance to win so long as they play defense at the high-level they are capable of.

Let’s kick this road trip off with a win guys.

Let’s go Warriors!

Update: Casspi has officially been ruled out for tonight.
