Golden State Warriors At Washington Wizards: Regular Season Game 60 Open Thread

If you are an enthusiast for defensive basketball, tonight you might want to consider turning off you TV set. Because when the Golden State Warriors come to town you can expect a lot of points to be scored and with very little resistance on the defensive end.. Both John Wall and Nick Young will have to be on their toes tonight as they have to guard the backcourt of Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry. Both are capable of exploding on any given night and both will need to be guarded tightly on the perimeter.

If the Wizards have an advantage tonight, it is due to the fact that the Warriors are a terrible road team and capable of playing down to the level of their opponent. Add to this fact that this is one of the few frontcourts in the league that the Wizards could possibly dominate and the Wizards might be capable of scratching out a win. The Warriors are in reality a slightly advanced version of the Wizards, in that if the jumpers aren't falling, they are unlikely to win the game.
