Preview: Warriors take their show on the road to Philly

It’s time for Steph to break the record while Seth is guarding him.

The Golden State Warriors are headed to Philadelphia to face off against the 76ers, a team that is finding themselves being defined by who isn’t suiting up for them, despite boasting an All-NBA center in Joel Embiid.

Philly has a 14-12 record, but the biggest topic I see in NBA conversations around their franchise is what they’re going to do with their other All-Star Ben Simmons. The #1 overall draft pick in the 2016 draft has sat out this whole season, and he’s a tantalizing option for any team with dreams of making a big move. That includes the Portland Trail Blazers, a team the Warriors just defeated in their last game.

If Phlly can fleece a team for some assets to get Simmons, they’ll probably vault themselves back into title contention. If not, I wonder how high their ceiling is riding Embiid and Tobias Harris as their two work horses.

Meanwhile Golden State is waiting for two of their starters in Klay Thompson and James Wiseman, while their leader Stephen Curry is closing in on the all-time 3PT record. He’s ten bombs away, and that’s a mark he may just hit on his brother Seth when they meet Saturday night.
