The Golden State Warriors have been dealing with injuries to Stephen Curry for a large part of the season thus far, while the Atlanta Hawks have recently been without one of their main cog's in Joe Johnson. But with Johnson and Curry possibly returning to their respective lineups this Wednesday, each squad could have a boost come game time tonight.
The Hawks have owned the Warriors as of late, winners of eight of the last 11 meetings between the two. Golden State took their last meeting in February 2011 by the score of 95-79 in Atlanta where the Hawks scored the least amount of points all season at Phillips Arena. The Hawks have been holding court at home this season, sporting a 10-5 record there, so the W's will have their hands full as they look to break another three game losing streak.
Monta Ellis will likely have to do better than the 14 points he put up last night, as will the offense in general who shot a season low 34% from the field and 3-22 combined form downtown. I'd say a balanced production from the starters and the bench will be needed to get it done tonight, in need of a total team effort to get themselves a win.
Tipoff is set for 4:30 p.m. PT with coverage on CSN Bay Area.
