Out of the five original starters in the first game of the season, there is only one that will be in the starting lineup tonight for the Golden State Warriors and that is Dorell Wright. Injuries and trades have depleted this Warriors roster and they face off against one of the best teams in the league tonight in the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs are currently the #2 seed in the Western Conference and are only one game back from the first place Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Warriors are playing for draft position at this point so getting game experience for their younger players is something coach Mark Jackson will look to do. The back court will be let by rookies Klay Thompson and Charles Jenkins who have both been very solid contributors in this tough season.
With Lee, Andris Biedrins, and Andrew Bogut all out with injuries, the Warriors front court is very thin to say the least. Mikki Moore was recently signed to the team to help out for the remainder of the season. Moore, along with Jeremy Tyler and Mickell Gladness, will have the task of slowing down one of the all time great power forwards in the Spurs Tim Duncan.
With the Warriors not needing a win and the Spurs fighting for home court advantage in the playoffs, look for the Spurs to win easily at Oracle Arena.
