The Golden State Warriors will look to continue their run with the NBA’s best record when they host the shorthanded Philadelphia 76ers in San Francisco on Wednesday.
The Warriors are rolling to start the season, getting out to an NBA-best 15-2 record, also currently riding a four-game win streak. Superstar guard Stephen Curry is back to playing at an MVP level, averaging 28.4 points, 6.6 assists, 5.9 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game while knocking down 41.1 percent of his 3-point attempts.
While he has been the expected catalyst to Golden State’s hot start, it is reserve guard Jordan Poole who is catching people by surprise with his play this season. Poole has been massive for the Warriors while they still await Klay Thompson’s return, averaging 18.4 points per game, the third-most on the team behind Curry and Andrew Wiggins.
Poole is coming off of a career night, dropping 33 points in a win over the Toronto Raptors.
If the 76ers are going to pull this one off, it will be without All-Star center Joel Embiid, who has missed the last eight games with a bad case of the coronavirus. Two of Philadelphia’s other starters, Tobias Harris (hip) and Seth Curry (back) have both also been in-and-out of the lineup with ailments, and each are listed as questionable for Wednesday’s game.
If neither starter can go, expect another big night from second-year guard Tyrese Maxey, who has carried a huge load for the 76ers this season in the absence of star guard Ben Simmons. Maxey is averaging 18.7 points and 4.6 assists per game, emerging as the team’s go-to guy in games when Harris and Embiid can’t suit up.
