The Golden State Warriors tip-off another In-Season Tournament matchup with Tuesday night’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The game will be played at 7:00 PM PT in San Francisco and can be watched on NBC Sports Bay Area.

Previously with the Warriors:

Golden State lost Sunday’s game against Minnesota, 116-110, extending their losing streak to three in a row. Although it’s still early in the season, there’s a growing concern about the Warriors’ lack of offensive production outside of point guard Stephen Curry. While Curry scored a team-high 38 points, the rest of the starting unit combined for only 33 points on the night. In the bigger picture, not one player on the Warriors, aside from Curry, has scored more than 20 points in a game to begin this regular season.

What to watch for tonight:

Tonight, the Warriors will get another chance at beating Minnesota and their number-one ranked defense. The Timberwolves’ combination of size, length, and athleticism proved to be a problem that Golden State’s offense struggled to solve all game long. Specifically, Minnesota center Rudy Gobert was a force in the paint, finishing the night with a 10-point, 10-rebound double-double to go along with a dominant five blocked shots.

As if things weren’t hard enough, the Warriors will also be without Curry, who will sit tonight’s game due to knee soreness.

With the Wolves shutting down the paint, the Warriors will need to hit their perimeter shots in order to force their defense to spread out. They were only 12-of-43 from the three-point line on Sunday (27.9%) and shot 38.5% from the field as a team.

Improvement in this area will be a tall task, especially without Curry. However, If there is any silver lining, Curry’s absence may be kick that the rest of the team needs to get their scoring back on track.

It should be a fun game. Enjoy the basketball Dub Nation. GO WARRIORS!!!
