The Golden State Warriors host one of the Eastern Conference’s best teams when they take on the Boston Celtics.

The Dubs are coming off a 118-91 blowout win over the Detroit Pistons to improve to 11-9 on the season. Unfortunately, rookie James Wiseman suffered a sprained wrist against the Pistons and will be re-evaluated in a week.

Golden State is just 4-8 against teams with a winning record and will need to be better on the defensive end against a talented team like Boston. The Celtics lost several key players last month due to the NBA’s health and safety protocols and have struggled since.

Boston has lost five of its last seven outings and is expected to be without Marcus Smart, who injured his calf against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Without Wiseman, Kevon Looney and Eric Paschall should see some extra time for the Warriors, who will head out for a four-game Texas road trip after this matchup.
