  • LAST TIME OUT
    After the bench rallied from an 11-point deficit in the fourth quarter, the Warriors struggled in overtime and lost 114-106 in Sacramento on Saturday. Klay Thompson had 12 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter, including a game-tying 3-pointer in the final second of regulation, and Nate Robinson had 20 points to lead the “Dubstitutes.” Dorell Wright had a team-high 24 points and Monta Ellis added 18 points in the defeat.

  • WARRIORS VS. THUNDER
    Tuesday’s contest will be the second of three matchups between the Warriors and Thunder this season. The Warriors suffered a 120-109 loss at home in the first matchup on January 27, a close game all the way until Kevin Durant took charge in the fourth quarter. If the Warriors are to avenge that defeat, they’ll need to do a better job of rebounding. They lost the rebounding battle 53-34 in that game and were manhandled on the glass 55-36 in Saturday’s loss in Sacramento. Stopping the Thunder will be no easy task. Durant, Westbrook and company improved upon their best record in the NBA with Monday's overtime in Portland, but they will be playing on the back end of a back-to-back against a Warriors team that has won three of its last four games at home.
  • DIALING IN FROM LONG DISTANCE
    In the last nine games, the Warriors are hitting .438 from distance, converting 91-of-208 three-point attempts. They have connected on at least eight shots from long distance in each of those games, including a season-high 16 3-pointers on Saturday.
  • WRIGHT ON TRACK
    After a slow start to the season, Dorell Wright is starting to come around. He’s averaged 16.0 points over the last eight games while shooting 53.5 percent from the field and 49.0 percent from 3-point range.
