INJURY TO WATCH
Golden State point guard Stephen Curry missed the last game with a sprained ankle and will be out again today. Jordan Bell (ankle) will also be out, while David West (arm cyst) and Andre Iguodala (wrist sprain) are questionable. For the T-Wolves, point guard Aaron Brooks (personal matter) has missed the last three games and is questionable today.
Curry being out at the Trail Blazers proved to be too much for the Warriors to handle in a 125-108 loss. It also hurt being in the second night of a back-to-back, while this will be Golden State's third game in four days. Today's matchup should be easier against a team that isn't nearly as good defensively since losing start Jimmy Butler to a knee injury that will sideline him until early April. Look for Kevin Durant to have another huge game as the Warriors claim the win and cover the spread. Golden State is 3-0 straight up and 2-0-1 ATS in the last three meetings.
