The Cleveland Cavaliers will face the Golden State Warriors at Chase Center on Monday night in the NBA. The Cavs are determined to end their seven-game win streak with a win in the Bay Area, but the Warriors won’t be easy pickings.
Losing 128-111 to the LA Clippers - who did not dress Kawhi Leonard and Paul George last night - should be a major concern for the Cleveland Cavaliers. They will be playing a rested Golden State Warriors squad that also lost their last outing, a 134-117 trouncing at the Brooklyn Nets' hands.
But the Warriors are playing at home tonight.
Stephen Curry has been on a roll in the past couple of weeks, as he has been carrying the Warriors on his shoulders until their big men return from injury.
