The Warriors have won seven of eight games since that fateful collapse to Cleveland on Christmas. Although from the outside looking in seven of eight looks great, Golden State has had their struggles in this recent stretch of games.
It could be experimentation on their part with different rotations or simply a learning experience for this current group of players on the floor. Whatever the case may be, they’ll be able to apply all those lessons against a team they want to beat and beat soundly on Monday night.
The Cavaliers have added another piece to the puzzle since the last time these two teams met. They acquired Kyle Korver from the Atlanta Hawks and added another offensive weapon to the group.
It just means that they have yet another player that Golden State is going to have to account for on the defensive end. The team has struggled to contain Kyrie Irving in their recent meetings. Irving has hit the winning shot in his last two games against the Warriors.
This is a game everyone has been waiting to see since the thriller on Christmas. The Warriors have a golden opportunity in front of them to add yet another win and potentially spark a long winning streak going forward.
