The Golden State Warriors are hoping to get back to winning ways this season after failing to make the playoffs last year due to the absence of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. Further, the departure of Kevin Durant and Andre Iguodala signaled to many the end of the Warriors Dynasty. But now, the Dubs will want to show the dynasty is still alive and well.

They will have a tough task ahead of them, with a packed NBA schedule. Their 2020-21 NBA season will start on the road against Eastern Conference contenders Brooklyn Nets, facing their former teammate Kevin Durant. Then, they have a tough January with the Lakers, the Clippers, the Raptors, and Phoenix.

Unfortunately, in February, they have an even harder task with multiple games against Luka Dončić and the Mavericks, and the newly rejuvenated Charlotte Hornets. Their last game before the All-Star break will be against Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers.
