Game thread: Warriors send the kids to work on Friday
No Curry, Thompson, Wiggins, or Thompson; Kuminga and JMG are back though!
Friday is the sexiest of days, if you think about it. Weird schedules aside, everyone loves Friday and all it represents. For the Golden State Warriors, tonight’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers is feeling extremely Friday. All the main guys (sorry, Kevon Looney!) are resting - but fret not because it looks like Jonathan Kuminga and JaMychal Green are returning to action!
This is the end of a long, difficult road trip full of close games and for a team with all too many questions, it’s honestly kind of nice to have a low stakes game right now. Well… for me anyways. Not so much for a Warriors team that has yet to gel.
WHO: Golden State Warriors (22-23) at Cleveland Cavaliers (28-18)
WHEN: Friyay January 20th, 2023 // 4:30pm PDT
Another short-handed game? Color me shocked (and entertained)!
Here at DNHQ, we embrace positivity - with a splash of realism. The reality is that the Warriors roster has failed to gain much traction this season. Inconsistency, injuries, and a lack of internal improvement that is likely strongly correlated with those two preceding factors has hampered the champs all season.
But the real issue with this team isn’t attached to the players that are resting tonight. Giving extended run to the rest of the roster isn’t such a bad idea - especially with Kuminga and JMG returning. Call me a sick weirdo, but I’m really looking forward to this one.
Will it work? Who knows! But at least Kuminga is back!
I’m turning off my computer and watching the game! Happy Friday everyone!
