LAST TIME OUT
The Warriors suffered a 102-87 loss to the New Orleans Hornets Wednesday night at Oracle Arena. David Lee led the way for Golden State with 28 points, seven rebounds and five assists, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the hot-shooting Hornets who registered 59 percent accuracy from the field. Dorell Wright connected on four 3-pointers for 12 points while Klay Thompson added in 13 on 50 percent shooting. FULL GAME RECAP
WARRIORS VS. NETS
Friday night's matchup will close out the season series between Golden State and New Jersey. The Nets won the first matchup on January 18, a 107-100 contest that marked the Warriors' fourth road game in five nights. The Warriors, however, have won each of the last six head-to-head matchups at Oracle Arena. One matchup to keep an eye on will be between David Lee and Kris Humphries. Both players play with a high level of energy and hustle, and both teams can certainly use more of that considering the list of injuries on both sides.
DAVID PUTTING UP GOLIATH NUMBERS
Although the team has struggled in recent contests, David Lee continues to play at a high level. He’s scored 20-plus points in five of the last seven games, and he’s dished out at least four assists in each of his last four games. Lee currently ranks fifth among NBA power forwards in scoring (19.5), sixth in rebounding (9.7) and sixth in assists (2.7).
MAKING PROGRESS IN THE D-LEAGUE
Since being assigned to the Dakota Wizards of the NBA D-League last week, Chris Wright has averaged 15.7 points and 5.7 rebounds over three games. He had 22 points in Dakota’s 147-126 win over the Texas Legends on Wednesday, and he currently ranks second on the team in scoring (18.2) and first in rebounding (7.8).
Injuries:Warriors - Andris Biedrins (strained right groin), Stephen Curry (mild sprain, right ankle) and Andrew Bogut (left ankle fracture) are out. Nets - Damion James (right foot surgery), Brook Lopez (right foot), Jordan Farmar (sore right groin) and Shelden Williams (right eye injury) are out. Jordan Williams (mild concussion) is doubtful. Anthony Morrow (bruised right shoulder) is probable.
