The Golden State Warriors visit the Phoenix Suns in the first game of the regular season for both teams on Wednesday night. The game is scheduled for 7 p.m. PT and will be televised on Comcast Sports Network HD in the Bay Area.
The Warriors are looking to improve and stay healthy with a young team in 2012-13. Lottery pick Harrison Barnes will be starting from day one, as head coach Mark Jackson hopes the rookie can have an immediate effect. Second-year guard Klay Thompson will be in the starting lineup to begin the season this year, after finishing his initial campaign out of Washington State on a high note.
Golden State is hoping another sharpshooting former first-round pick, Stephen Curry, will be able to join Thompson in the backcourt. Curry is recovering from injury and has practiced this week after missing a large chuck of last season.
