On the other side of the court, the Warriors currently sit in a 3 game win streak, including a blowout win versus the Portland Trail Blazers, 123-105. Sadly for head coach Steve Kerr, Stephen Curry (leg) and Andrew Wiggins (personal) will not be playing for Golden State in this matchup.

The veteran is averaging 23.5 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per match. The 8 time All Star currently shoots a decent 38% from the 3 point line on 7.7 attempts per bout, being the main threat from deep for the Clippers.
