Monday will be a historic night in Golden State Warriors history as Chris Mullin will finally have his No. 17 jersey retired in the rafters of Oracle Arena as the Minnesota Timberwolves head to town to square off with the W's.
The Warriors are amidst another losing streak, three in a row to be exact, though halftime will likely be the focal point of the evening. Many Warriors legends are to be in attendance to celebrate Mullin's career and the happy days of yesteryear as No. 17 joins the other five jerseys retired in team history along with No. 13 Wilt Chamberlain, No. 14 Tom Meschery, No. 16 Alvin Attles, No. 24 Rick Barry, and No. 42 Nate Thurmond.
As for the game itself, Mark Jackson still has some new toys to try out in Richard Jefferson and T.J. Ford, mixing them in with the rest of the ensemble already in place. Jefferson, Brandon Rush and Dorell Wright will seemingly fight for minutes at the small forward position.
Ricky Rubio is out for the season with a knee injury, and Stephen Curry will likely see limited or no minutes tonight as well, but keep you eye on Kevin Love, currently leading the league with 38 double-doubles, against David Lee, who's been just about averaging a double-double with 19.2 points and 9.2 rebounds a game over his last 10.
Tipoff is set for 7:30 p.m. PT with coverage on CSN Bay Area.
