The Golden State Warriors are 18-15 and just four games away from completing the first half of their NBA schedule. Many agree that the Dubs have done better than expected in the unfortunate absence of Klay Thompson. But they now face an uphill task in the second phase of the fixtures that will see them starting against Clippers’ Kawhi Leonard.

After completing the first half against Phoenix Suns on March 4, the Warriors roster will sit back and cheer for their All-star starter Stephen Curry. The Baby-faced Assassin will most definitely play on LeBron James’ side and would want to win the prestigious showcase.

The Warriors will have a humongous mountain to climb just as they come back after the break. In arguably the toughest back-to-back games, the Bay Area will face LA Clippers, Utah Jazz, and Lakers within the first five days.

These are the Top 3 teams in the WC, and winning against them would not come easy. However, the fixtures after that are relatively easier, but the momentum of winning is the key and the first three games might hamper that. Check out the entire draw –

  • May 1 – Rockets (A)
  • May 3 – Pelicans (A)
  • May 4 – Pelicans (A)
  • May 6 – OKC (H)

  • May – Grizzlies (H)

In total, they will play 18/35 home games in the next half of the regular season. Moreover, they do not have many big games after facing the Sixers on April 19th.

Hence, taking a lead in the early draws will be the key for them, as reaching 40 wins would more or less ensure them a playoff berth. Also, Steve Kerr’s team will most probably have James Wiseman (wrist) healthy to play and support Stephen Curry, who has been in an MVP form lately.
