Game Preview: Warriors at Hawks - 2/29/12
  • LAST TIME OUT
    The Warriors opened up the second half of the season with a 102-78 loss in Indiana on Tuesday. Playing without Stephen Curry, the Warriors shot 34 percent from the field and 3-for-22 on 3-pointers. Monta Ellis finished with 14 points and five rebounds in 28 minutes and David Lee chipped in 12 and six in the loss. Playing against his former team, Brandon Rush went 2-for-4 on 3-pointers and finished with 14 points and seven rebounds. FULL GAME RECAP


  • WARRIORS VS. HAWKS
    Playing the back end of a back-to-back, the Warriors will match up with the Hawks on Wednesday for the first and last time this season. The Hawks are one of 12 teams that the Warriors will play just once this season due to the shortened 66-game schedule. Injuries will take center stage in this matchup, as Stephen Curry sat out Tuesday's game with a strained ligament in his right foot. Likewise, Atlanta's Joe Johnson was sidelined for this past weekend's All-Star festivities with left knee tendinitis, and Al Horford remains out as he recovers from left pectoral surgery.


  • NO REST FOR THE WEARY
    Playing on consecutive days is never easy, let alone when playing on the road. However, the Warriors have managed to go 3-3 this season when playing on the back end of a back-to-back. Thankfully for the Warriors, only Brandon Rush and David Lee played 30-plus minutes on Tuesday, so the team should have somewhat fresh legs against the Hawks.


  • TIME TO BOUNCE BACK
    The Warriors were uncharacteristically bad from 3-point range on Tuesday. Their 13.6 shooting percentage on 3s was the lowest of the season. Heading into that game, the Warriors were second in the NBA in 3-point shooting. Should they shoot their normal percentage from long distance, they should have a much better shot of staying in the ballgame.


  • NO SLUMP FOR RUSH
    While most of the team struggled offensively on Tuesday, Brandon Rush shot 6-for-11 from the field and finished with 14 points and seven rebounds. It was his highest scoring output since January 31 for the first-year Warrior, who continues to lead the NBA in 3-point shooting (.523).
