Golden State takes on one of the West’s best.

NBA: Denver Nuggets at Golden State Warriors Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Who: Golden State Warriors (13-48) at Denver Nuggets (41-19)
When: 6:00 p.m. PT
TV: NBC Sports Bay Area

The Warriors losing streak is only at one game right now, which is pretty good for them! We don’t normally get just a one-game losing streak. Way to go, champs.

In all likelihood, it will be a two-game losing streak when the team charter touches down in San Francisco. The Nuggets are good; they’re really good. And the Warriors, well . . . they’re not.

Denver brings All-Star center Nikola Jokic to the table, a certifiable top-ten player in the league. The Warriors bring no such talent, even though they might on Thursday - the hopeful return date of Steph Curry.

To make matters worse, Golden State will be without Draymond Green and Kevon Looney, who are both nursing injuries.

Instead, the Warriors focus is on their 10-day contracts. Stanford product Chasson Randle was signed earlier in the day, and will make his team debut. On the other end of the spectrum, Dragan Bender is playing in his final game of availability, so it’s one final audition to earn another contract.

Denver is fun, and occasionally the Warriors are, too. So enjoy the game. And don’t forget to vote!
