The Golden State Warriors are heading to the Barclays Center to face the Brooklyn Nets tonight. On their road trip so far, the Dubs have been 1-1, after an overtime loss to the Atlanta Hawks. All eyes will be on Stephen Curry who dropped 60 points in the last game with 10 three-pointers, as the Warriors go take on Cam Thomas and Co.

The season has been challenging for Steph as his exceptional performances have failed to convert into wins for the team. The Dubs are at a point in the season where each of their victories will count towards moving ahead in the regular season. With that in mind, is the four-time NBA Champion playing against the Nets tonight?

The injury report doesn’t include him, which means he is probably going to spearhead the Warriors’ effort. Curry has only sat out three games this season. On November 14 and 16, he was sidelined for two consecutive games due to a minor knee injury. Making his comeback on November 18 against the OKC Thunder, Curry then played in 25 consecutive games.

This streak came to an end on January 13 when Steph was rested for the game against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks. The Golden State Warriors opted to give him a night off, a decision that is understandable, especially considering Curry’s age. Additionally, it was the second game of a back-to-back, justifying the rest.

Meanwhile, Andrew Wiggins has been put in as doubtful due to ankle issues, and Dario Saric is listed as probable. The Dubs injury report includes key players like Chris Paul (hand) and Gary Payton(hamstring) still out. On a positive note, Moses Moody is set to make a return to the roster in the match-up. After so disappointing losses, the Dubs have to snag the win tonight to salvage their name.

The Warriors’ near misses this season

This season the Dubs have had more missed opportunities than they would like to admit. They lost at least eight games that they could have easily won. However, three games particularly stick out as sore thumbs on that list. In the first spot is the loss against the Denver Nuggets, when the Warriors led all through but in the 4th quarter lost an 18-point lead. The game was sealed by a half-court three-pointer by Jokic. Warriors failed to capitalize on a Murray-less Nuggets, despite Steph’s 30 points.

The second most significant near-win has to be the double overtime home game against the Lakers. Curry had 46 points and he even sank a three-pointer in the clutch in the second overtime to give the Warriors a lead but a foul was called and LeBron James made both of his free throws to give Los Angeles a one-point lead.

Finally, their recent loss to Atlanta has to be the most heartbreaking of all because it included a 60-point performance from their leader. Looking back at these, it is evident that Steve Kerr has to figure out a way for them to convert these performances into wins.
