The Golden State Warriors finish off their homestand with Saturday’s second game of a back-to-back against the Portland Trail Blazers. The game will be played at 5:30 PM PT in San Francisco and can be watched on NBC Sports Bay Area.
Previously with the Warriors:
Golden State kept their four-game winning streak alive after beating the Washington Wizards last night, 129-118. The Warriors took care of business against a struggling Wizards team, putting the score firmly out of reach by the early fourth quarter. Stephen Curry led the way with 30 points on 50% shooting from the field and 8-of-13 shooting from the three-point line, all in just 27 minutes of action.
What to watch for tonight:
The Warriors will attempt to go above .500 for the first time since beating the Minnesota Timberwolves back on Nov. 12. They will have to do so against a Portland team in which they already beat twice this month. The Warriors’ most recent game against the Blazers took place last week on Dec. 17 and resulted in a 118-114 Warriors victory.
Golden State brings the momentum from their four-game winning streak into tonight’s matchup. Their new rotation has proven to be successful as it now features a mix of established veterans surrounded by the energy and contributions of the team’s younger players.

Rookie Trayce Jackson-Davis has been critical during this stretch. On Friday, he recorded his second-straight double-double with 10 points and 15 rebounds. Jackson-Davis is just the third rookie to record consecutive double-doubles this season as he continues to be a much-needed force inside the paint for the Warriors.
It should be a fun game. Enjoy the basketball Dub Nation. GO WARRIORS!!!
