The Warriors are two games above .500 for the first time this season after extending their winning streak against the Houston Rockets on Saturday night, 120-101. Meanwhile, the Pacers have struggled recently — losing four out of their last five games, with their one win coming as a result of a total collapse by the Los Angeles Lakers. Golden State and Indiana played each other two times last season. Each team won one game with their most recent match ending in an overtime Warriors defeat on Jan. 20, 2022 by a score of 121-117.
The Warriors continue to be dominant at home as their 11-1 record at the Chase Center is third best in the NBA. They now welcome a Pacers team that is 5-7 on the road and will be without their best player in point guard Tyrese Haliburton.
Point guard Tyrese Haliburton will miss Sunday night's game against the Portland Trailblazers and Monday night's game against the Golden State Warriors.https://t.co/md1N6iVYB2— IndyStarSports (@IndyStarSports) December 5, 2022
Golden State is a bit banged up themselves as Jordan Poole is listed as questionable while Andrew Wiggins is listed as out with right abductor tightness.
Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins are both listed as questionable tomorrow against the Pacers. Poole: Left ankle soreness. Wiggins: Right adductor tightness.— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) December 4, 2022
Poole and Wiggins were able to finish the game on Saturday night and played a big role in the team’s success. Their absences could have big ramifications for the Warriors especially since both have started to heat up from a scoring-standpoint during this latest home stand.
It should be a fun game. Enjoy the basketball Dub Nation. GO WARRIORS!!!
