The Golden State Warriors play the Atlanta Hawks at the Oracle Arena on Tuesday, March 2, starting 10:30 PM local time.
The Warriors are just 20-games away from making history. They have already taken their record to 53-5 and the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls’ record doesn’t seem far away now. Given their current form it is not a distant dream.
The only one team standing in their way to make longest home streak in NBA history is Atlanta Hawks. Steph Curry is recovering from an ankle injury and might not be able to start proceedings in Tuesday night’s game.
The official NBA source quotes about Curry’s latest performance. The source writes, “Curry began Golden State’s four-games-in-six-days stretch last week with 36 points in a 102-92 win at Atlanta (33-27) – and that was his least impressive effort of the four.”
“He had 42 in a comeback win over Miami on Wednesday, dropped 51 with 10 3-pointers on Orlando one night later and then matched an NBA record with 12 3s while scoring 46 points in a 121-118 overtime victory at Oklahoma City on Saturday.”
“Everybody in this locker room, we’ve seen him practice from that range every day,” Klay Thompson said. “He’s got the greatest range I’ve ever seen. He makes it look so effortless.”
“We’re not going to do anything crazy, obviously,” coach Steve Kerr said of Curry. “We’ll err on the side of caution. But if he’s healthy enough to go, we’ll play him.”
Atlanta would be hoping to make the most out of Curry’s absence. Their record now stands at 33-27.
