The limping Golden State Warriors are in Charlotte today to square off against the Hornets. Normally, Dub Nation circles this game on the calendar for the homecoming of icon and Charlotte native Stephen Curry. Unfortunately, he’s out for an extended time with that broken hand, but Golden State has another All-Star guard making an important return.

D’ANGELO RUSSELL IS BACK FOLKS! He’s the Dubs’ leading scorer, averaging 24.3 points per game along with 6.7 assists.

Charlotte won a thriller 93-87 in San Francisco earlier this season despite Eric Paschall’s 25 points. That was a game the Warriors seemed to have in hand until they collapsed down the stretch.

Can the Dubs steal a win on the road for the Curry family honor, or will the Hornets sting them for the second time this season? Will D-Lo go for 50 again? Or is it Paschall’s time to dominate?

WARRIORS!

HORNETS!
