Golden State will look to break their slump in their first game after the All-Star break.

The Golden State Warriors have lost four of their last eight games, which is highly uncharacteristic for the team. Now, after a long All-Star break (that, admittedly, wasn’t much of a break for the star players), the team will look to right the ship.

They do so against the new-look Los Angeles Clippers. The Dubs haven’t faced the Clippers since the team altered their course and traded away franchise face Blake Griffin.

While the Clippers don’t have Griffin anymore, they still have DeAndre Jordan, who presents a bit of a matchup problem for Golden State’s frontcourt. Steve Kerr’s potential solution to the problem is . . . err . . . a bit surprising.

A McGee sighting! That’s not common. But with Jordan Bell still sidelined, McGee is the only center the Warriors have who has a shot at matching Jordan’s athleticism.

But while McGee will likely start, Kerr wasn’t about to confirm it.

Hopefully this move works. The Warriors currently trail the Houston Rockets in the standings, so they need to finish the season strong to secure the top seed. Kerr sees that happening right out of the gate.

Sounds good to me.

Let’s Go Dubs!
