The Golden State Warriors will take on the Denver Nuggets tonight as they finish off their three-game road trip. The game will be played at 6:00 PM PT in Denver and can be watched on NBC Sports Bay Area.

The Warriors will attempt to bounce back from last night’s crushing 119-114 overtime loss against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Nuggets, meanwhile, ended their two-game skid on Tuesday after they beat the New Orleans Pelicans, 122-113. The last time Golden State and Denver played each other was the second game of the season on Oct. 21, 2022 — a game which resulted in a 128-123 Warriors defeat.

Wednesday’s loss for the Warriors was especially significant as they play the second game of a back-to-back tonight. With the extra minutes played by the Warriors’ veterans, it remains up in the air if they will be active for Thursday’s game. At the moment, Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala are listed as out, while Stephen Curry and Draymond Green are listed as questionable. Earlier this week, Curry advocated for playing both games of back-to-backs but it will ultimately be decided by the team’s training staff to let him do so this time around.

If Golden State’s veterans are indeed out, tonight’s matchup against Denver will be quite the uphill battle as they face off against the number one seed in the Western Conference. The Nuggets have a record of 35-16 this season which includes a record of 23-4 when playing at home. They have the league’s best offensive rating at 117.4 which is no surprise when their best player is MVP candidate Nikola Jokic, who remains largely unimpressed with his own stats despite currently averaging a triple double on the season.

Whether at full strength or not, Golden State has strangely shown to put up effort when disregarded in games such as this one. If anything, there should be additional playing time for the young players as they attempt to avoid falling back to .500 on the season.

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