The Golden State Warriors are looking to continue their undefeated ways in 2024 after knocking off the Orlando Magic to start off January. To do so, they’ll have to get revenge from a Christmas Day defeat to the world champion Denver Nuggets, led by superstar Euro center Nikola Jokic.

And they’ll have to do it without Draymond Green, their defensive enforcer who is still out with suspension for tussling with Euro centers. Impossible? Or VERY possible??

Watch: TNT

Listen: 95.7 The Game

The last time Stephen Curry, greatest point guard alive, played Denver he scored 18 points on 7-of-21 shooting. He was also a rough 3-of-13 shooting from beyond the arc, continuing his stretch of Christmas Day game struggles.

That’s why I’m extremely optimistic about how he’ll play in tonight’s game, as the great players know how to bounce back and adjust after having a frustrating performance.

That two-time MVP will be ready I’m sure. Meanwhile there’s another two-time in Denver, Mr. Jokic. He also didn’t have the best shooting game on Christmas against the Warriors, as he went 4-of-12 from the field.

But he got a healthy referee’s whistle as a beautiful holiday gift, something that sent Warriors Coach Steve Kerr into a frustrated place during and after the game.

Disgusting he said! Hopefully this game is a lot more pretty to watch, and ends in a Warriors win!
