Game Thread: Warriors take on short-handed Heat
Golden State is nearing full power, but face a tough January schedule
Remember not too long ago when the Denver Nuggets folded and forced a rescheduled game? Well, now the Golden State Warriors are on the favorable side of that situation, with tonight’s opponent, the Miami Heat sporting an entire roster’s worth of players that are out.
Here’s the Heat’s (incredibly lean) box score from last night:
In other news, the Warriors found out this afternoon when their rescheduled game against Denver will be. Adding a back-to-back and three games in four nights to an already packed NBA schedule isn’t ideal.
Warriors had a 3 game trip scheduled to Minnesota (3/1), Dallas (3/3) and the Lakers (3/5) with two days off before coming home to face Clippers (3/8). Denver game (3/7) becomes final game of 4-GM road trip with Clippers home game as second of newly created back to back. https://t.co/Sw4pR4KFMC

But here’s the big news. Klay Thompson is looking more and more likely to make his first appearance in over two years this Sunday:
post game party. We don't have gifs, but we have each other! What a nice win!
Hope Jimmy Butler is alright
Milwaukee lost to Detroit tonight, for everyone who thinks we should win every game.
