The Golden State Warriors are coming to town tonight, but it will be difficult to recognize them. Stephen Jackson and Andris Biedrins are both out and Corey Maggette is unlikely to play. While Golden State may only have one big name player on the court, Monta Ellis, they still have players who can put up big numbers.
Shooters like Anthony Morrow, Rob Kurz and Marco Belinelli can catch fire. Keleena Azibuike is a versatile scorer, Brendan Wright can score in the paint and C.J. Watson is a solid player as well. The player to watch however is Anthony Randolph. The beanpole thin rookie has tremendous instincts and when he plays at least 20 minutes can really fill up a box score.
The point is if the Nuggets take this game for granted the Warriors can still pump in the points.
Tonight will be the first back to back game the Nuggets have played in almost three weeks (March 9 at home against Houston). It will be interesting to see how they react, especially following a physical and emotional game last night in Dallas. Not only do I want to see an easy win, but I want to see Carmelo Anthony continue to play like Carmelo Anthony.
Oh yea, and Nene is back from suspension.

Take this with you: Of the Nuggest final six games against sub .500 teams this one worries me the most because of the tough game in Dallas last night and the seemingly depleted Warriors lineup.
