There’s finally some good news for the Golden State Warriors: Kevin Durant and Draymond Green are back. The Warriors have been without any All-Stars for the bulk of their recent games, but they get two back tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Interestingly, Steve Kerr has decided to go with a larger and more lineup, as Durant isn’t replacing Patrick McCaw in the lineup, but Nick Young instead, and JaVale McGee will get the nod at center. Quinn Cook will start at point guard to tie the unique lineup together.

Steve Kerr was pretty excited about Durant and Green returning to the lineup, which he made clear in his pregame presser. He knows that those two finding rhythm before the playoffs begin is crucial.

Even with some of the All-Stars back, it won’t be an easy task for the Warriors against a talented Bucks team. Milwaukee currently holds the eight-seed in the Eastern Conference, but is strongly in the race for the seventh and sixth-seed.
But most importantly, we get to see Durant against Giannis Antetokounmpo. That’s worth the price of admission right there.
Let’s Go Dubs!
