It sounds like Stephen Curry may be out although an injury report has yet to be submitted for either team.

The Warriors have a 1.5 game lead over the Mavericks. They are presently in 3rd place in the West.

I didn't investigate why but Klay and Draymond were sitting for their big game against Memphis yesterday.

This is what it said in the ESPN recap via AP:

Golden State played without leading scorer Stephen Curry, who has missed six games with a left foot sprain. Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Otto Porter Jr. also sat out under various injury management situations.

Such bad timing with them vying for a better seed. Maybe Golden State sees it different though. Maybe Golden State sees themselves as good enough that moving a couple spots doesn't really impact them at all and they like the matchups regardless. So let players get healthy because they feel they can beat anybody in the middle of the pact seeding.

Iffe already showing better touch around the rim than Elfrid.

That right handed layup on the offside of the rim is interesting. I wouldn't be shocked if the Suns waived Payton and replaced him with Iffe.

I previously half jokingly wondered if Payton closed his eyes when he shoots.

I keep wondering if Frank Kaminsky will make it back.

Klay apparently had some soreness in his achilles, which sounds quite scary. No idea on Draymond.

I'm expecting a big blowout loss tonight, they did get iggy back but he looked really rusty.

The Warriors want to make a statement tonight. I expect them to play their best.
