Can the Warriors skeleton crew shock the Utah Jazz tonight?

The young Dubs will be in hostile territory against a veteran opponent looking to put on a show for their fans in Utah.

Which do you want first, the good news, or the bad news?

The bad news is the Golden State Warriors are without Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, D’Angelo Russell, and Kevon Looney (among others).

The good news? Eric Paschall will have plenty of opportunities tonight to work on his rookie of the year campaign.

Paschall leads all rookies in total points, baby! If he goes for another 25 tonight and a posterizing jam on mammoth Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert, Dub Nation will be quite pleased.

Of course, the most inspiring outcome would be if Paschall leads the baby Dubs to a win over the alleged dark horse contenders in Salt Lake City. The last time these two teams met, I was in Chase Center and witnessed first hand as the Jazz bullied the Warriors around.

Can the Warriors shift that energy this time and put up a fight? We’ll have to see.
