What you need to know about the Warriors
The Warriors didn’t have too much trouble with the Minnesota Timberwolves at home on Wednesday as they won 123-110. Small forward Andrew Wiggins was the offensive standout of the matchup for the Warriors, picking up 35 points in a game against his old team.
Stephen Curry had 25 points in the victory and is averaging 27.4 points, 6.5 assists and 6.5 rebounds per game this season. With Klay Thompson still recovering from an Achilles tear, Jordan Poole has been a revelation at shooting guard. Poole is averaging 17.8 points per game this season and the Bulls will have to keep third-year pro contained with Golden State winning four of the five games where he’s had 20 points or more by double-digits.
What you need to know about the Bulls
Meanwhile, the Dallas Mavericks typically have all the answers at home, but on Wednesday the Bulls proved too difficult a challenge. Chicago picked up a 117-107 win. Their success was the result of a balanced attack that saw several players step up, but point guard Lonzo Ball led the charge as he shot 7-for-10 from beyond the arc and finished with 21 points, six dimes and six rebounds.
The new-look Bulls have gotten meaningful contributions from several of their offseason acquisitions. Ball is shooting 44.7 percent from the 3-point line, DeMar DeRozan averaging 26.0 points per game, Alex Caruso leading the NBA in steals per game (2.6) despite playing of the bench and Javonte Green sliding into a starting role with Patrick Williams (wrist) out. The Bulls will be without Nikola Vucevic because of COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
