Game Thread: Looney? Or small ball?
Warriors visit Jazz as All Star break looms
The Golden State Warriors are set to take on the Utah Jazz tonight, and all eyes are on center Kevon Looney. Looney, who hasn’t missed a game all season is the only healthy center on the roster — but if he can’t go, the Warriors are surely ready to run some small ball.
Also, there was a bit of confusion floating around the internet, but Otto Porter appears to be fully clear to play tonight — indicating that he will get tomorrow night off and Klay Thompson will return to play the tail end of this back-to-back.
The Warriors are 9-0 since Stephen Curry angrily kicked a chair, and haven’t lost with Porter in the starting lineup.
One way or another though, I’ve got to make these carnitas!
