The Hornets have had quite the roller coaster of a season. While Kemba Walker is making his first All-Star appearance, the team has gone up and down the standings in the playoff chase in the Eastern Conference.
Charlotte is trying to hold onto a playoff spot and they have a tough task ahead of them with the Warriors. Golden State was able to pull out a tough win over the Hornets last week in Charlotte after Kevin Durant came alive.
Curry hit a couple of huge threes to clinch the win. Not having Curry would make things tough for Golden State. Despite battling the flu, Curry has been playing his best stretch of basketball recently.
His ridiculous performance over the Clippers on Saturday night served as a reminder of why he is a back-to-back MVP. He will see how he feels before the game. The Warriors still have more than enough star power to get this thing done at home.
One area that could be key again is the young players off the bench. Patrick McCaw, James Michael McAdoo could really help themselves with some big nights while head coach Steve Kerr tries to get his guys some rest.
Will it be the Warriors with yet another win at home? Or will the Hornets pull the upset against a team that could be without their star point guard again? A win would be a nice way to get started on the week ahead for Golden State.
