  • WARRIORS VS. ROCKETS
    The Warriors will close out their three-game season series with the Houston Rockets on Saturday. The teams have split the first two head-to-head matchups this season, with each team winning on its home floor. Golden State was on the winning end of a 106-97 contest on February 12 at Oracle Arena. On March 22, the Rockets exacted revenge by taking down the Warriors 109-83. Golden State has lost seven-in-a-row in Houston, last defeating the Rockets on the road on December 31, 2007.


  • BACK-TO-BACK-TO-BACK
    Saturday's matchup will mark the second game of a three-day, three-game road trip for the Warriors. This is the Warriors first road back-to-back-to-back since April 29-May 1, 1999.


  • CURRY, BOGUT INJURY UPDATES
    The Warriors have announced that Stephen Curry and Andrew Bogut will each undergo arthroscopic surgery later this week. A timetable for the return to basketball-related activities for Curry and Bogut will be determined following surgery, but both players are expected to be ready for the start of training camp in October.

  • A YOUTH MOVEMENT
    Rookies Charles Jenkins, Klay Thompson and Jeremy Tyler have started 15-straight games and, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, are the first trio of rookies to start at least five consecutive games for the Warriors since Joe Barry Carroll, Lorenzo Romar and Larry Smith did so in March of 1981.


  • THE TOP RUNG
    Klay Thompson is playing as well as any rookie in the game, and hes been recognized as such with the top spot on NBA.coms Rookie Ladder, a weekly ranking of the NBAs top 10 first-year players. Not only has Thompson been the second-leading scorer among rookies since the All-Star Break (16.9), but hes also been an adept passer and rebounder in recent contests, averaging 5.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists over the last four games.
