The Golden State Warriors could use a win. They’ve lost two in a row, most recently getting the smackdown laid on them by the Minnesota Timberwolves. The game before that they blew a big lead to the Dallas Mavericks and took a painful loss. After blowing that 19-point advantage, Golden State coach Steve Kerr voiced his concerns:

“We just let our momentum get away from us ... We can’t just say: ‘Oh well, when Draymond (Green) and Andre (Iguodala) get back we will be better,’” Kerr told reporters.

”It doesn’t matter who’s out there. We’ve got to get better executing under pressure and maintaining competence.

Now the Dubs get a chance to exact some revenge with Klay Thompson back in the lineup.

Meanwhile the Mavericks have won their last two games, with their last one a big win over the Los Angeles Lakers. Luka Doncic scored 25 points that game and repeatedly lit LeBron James up for the closing buckets.

Dallas is currently the fifth seed in the Western Conference while Golden State holds on to a thin margin over the Memphis Grizzlies for the second seed. The Warriors have lost two out of the three games they’ve played against Dallas this season.
