Coming off of two disappointing losses at Oracle the Golden State Warriors (26-31) embark on their longest road trip of the season starting with their first stop against the Minnesota Timberwolves (13-46) in frozen Minneapolis Sunday afternoon. The 2 p.m. PT contest will be televised on CSN Bay Area (HD) and broadcast live on KNBR 680.
The Warriors head into the Target Center hoping to get back to their winning ways as they look for their sixth-straight win over the Timberwolves who have a meager 9 wins at home this season. Golden State is undefeated against the T’Wolves this year, including a 104-94 win in their last meting in Minnesota on November 27; fans may recall Dorell Wright setting a new Warriors record with nine three-pointers that game.
Now the Warriors will look to get back on track on the road. Five of the seven games on this upcoming trip will be against teams with losing records, This road trip could define the season for the Warriors, who need to put together a winning stretch to make a playoff run.
Following Sunday’s game, the Warriors will travel to Indiana on Tuesday and continue its trip with stops in Washington, Boston, Philadelphia, Cleveland and New Jersey. Boston is the only team on this road trip currently with a winning record, giving the W's ample opportunity to get some wins away from Oracle and creep closer to that .500 record.
