The second half of the season will be a fun one for the Golden State Warriors.
Through the first three months of the 2019-20 NBA season, the Golden State Warriors have experienced nothing but pain.
Pain from losing Kevin Durant in free agency. Pain from the long-lasting ACL injury suffered by Klay Thompson. Most of all, pain from the two-time MVP, Stephen Curry, fracturing his hand only four games into the season.
In the absence of their three biggest stars, the Warriors found themselves sinking at a historic rate. The Dubs are on pace for the biggest single-season drop in win-percentage of all-time and recently lost 10 straight games for the first time since 2002.
As life goes, the Warriors are now preparing to bounce back strong as ever. An inspiring victory over the Orlando Magic snapped their losing streak and the team has received word that Curry is targetting March 1st for his return.
Curry’s return to the court will bring obvious benefits to the squad. He is still the best point guard in the league and will be a one-man wrecking crew on offense. Curry alone makes this team competitive again.
Furthermore, D’Angelo Russell has been on a tear lately. The young star is averaging 25.9 points and 6.7 assists across his last 10 games. His most recent 26 points and 12 assists performance in a win versus the Magic helped prove Russell’s worth.
As for the rest of the squad, we saw promising signs from Eric Paschall and Jordan Poole as well. Poole finally showed us his talents as a shooter, scoring a career-high 21 points and drilling 4-of-10 attempts from deep.
Paschall chipped in with 20 points, his highest-scoring game since December 2nd. A revitalized Paschall down the stretch of the season will be huge for the Warriors as he is one of their best scoring options at the moment.
