The Golden State Warriors will travel to Atlanta to take up the challenge against the Atlanta Hawks at the Philips Arena on Monday, Feb. 22, starting 8 PM ET.
The Golden State Warriors have already taken their record to 49-5 and they can now believe that they have a clear shot to Chicago Bulls’ record of 73 wins. The dream doesn’t seem far fetched with the historic start in the NBA this season.
As per the official NBA website, the Hawks (31-26) are not that formidable side anymore. The Warriors with their current form can easily go past the Hawks as they look to “avoid their first four-game slide since 2006-07.”
The NBA sources quote, “They stumbled out of the All-Star break with two defeats there, 115-111 on Friday to a Miami team playing without Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside and 117-109 in double overtime the next night to a lowly Milwaukee club that ended a six-game road losing streak.”
“This is not the way we pictured it going,” center Al Horford said. “We are really in a hole right now.”
The Warriors registered a thumping 115-112 points victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. Thompson scored 32 and Curry had 23 with nine assists.
“We’ve been a resilient team all year,” Curry said. “Obviously with our record we haven’t lost two in row all year and there’s a reason for that because of our mentality.”
The only concern for the Warriors is Andrew Bogut. His injury might pose some problems and the affect the team combination. Draymond Green has been serving as his replacement, notes Yahoo Sports.
Stay tuned for more updates on the NBA this season.
