The elongated All-Star weekend has hopefully recharged the Golden State Warriors' batteries because they're going to need all the power they can get this week. The W's face a daunting task ahead of them as a seven-game road trip awaits, including a stop in Boston to face the Celtics at TD Garden. But before they head out on their journey the W's will square off with the Celtics at Oracle Arena on Tuesday and the Atlanta Hawks on Friday; two dominate teams the W's can hopefully use to kick off the last leg of the season with a bang.
The road trip mainly consists of teams drenched in mediocrity, but the W's will face some playoff caliber teams from the East as well. Starting with a meeting with the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Warriors will then play a back-to-back against the Indiana Pacers and Washington Wizards. From here the W's will move on to face the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers, then finish up the trip with another back-to-back against the Cleveland Cavaliers and New Jersey Nets. The Warriors are going to have to bring their A-game with them on the road if they want to stay close to the .500 mark, and won't return home until March 11 to face the Orlando Magic.
Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News had an awesome piece about the last 27 games on the W's regular season, breaking it down game by game. Really well done, definitely worth checking out.
