The Golden State Warriors continue their four-game homestand with a matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Dubs are coming off a disappointing 134-117 loss to Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday. Stephen Curry had 27 in the loss, but it was the defense that was a letdown.

Golden State allowed Brooklyn to shoot 53.8 percent from the field as the Nets made 16 shots from beyond the arc. Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving combined for 62 points and 26 assists.

The good news for the Warriors is that the Cavs aren’t nearly on the Nets’ level. Cleveland has lost its last seven and has fallen to 13th in the Eastern Conference. The Cavs are led by point guard Colin Sexton, who is averaging 22.8 points per game.

With James Wiseman and Kevon Looney still recovering from injuries, the Dubs will have their hands full with big man Andre Drummond. The big man is averaging 17.5 points and 13.5 rebounds per game. The Warriors don’t have anyone taller than 6’7 eligible to play, so we could see them play some zone.
