The Golden State Warriors at 30-2 has the best record playing in front of the home folks in the Logo for 2014-15. Arguably the toughest place to play or a top 3 toughest to play as Warriors are also without an All-Star in Klay Thompson. The key match ups though might be in the painted-area where both teams play relatively small.

Delicious Match Ups
Teague vs Curry
Milsap vs Green
It does not repeat does not get any better than that match up at Point Guard featuring 2015 All-Stars Jeff Teague vs Steph Curry as Teague's "Coming out Party" will be tonight...
Former Warriors Castoff Kent Bazemore is baaaaaaaaack and should get the nod to start with Korver out due to injury...as he is "D" first and second but has some game and athletically sneaky like Teague...
With just one "Los Splash Hermanos" in @StephenCurry30 the Human Torch of Clutch Fit @UABasketball who else will pick up the scoring slack with Thompson out?
Both teams play under-sized in the painted-area and Paul Milsap vs Draymond Green is one to watch...
Turnovers vs "Live Turnovers" for TD's as the Hawks can ill afford to get Dub Nation heavily involved in this one!
the "Money Ball Racks" as there is one rule of thought here ....RUN all shooters of the "Arc" period no questions asked or you will be sitting with the Bluedude until the Break!
Transition "D" as all five defenders need to be at least ball level before the Spalding orange hits the mid-line...
Transition Money Ball is a Mo Builder or a Mo Killah and with both Korver and Thompson out there still is plenty of certified and verified Snipers left...who does damage?
Half Court "D" when the game slows down...who can execute in the half court when it counts will be huge?
Defensive Rotations have to be on points if not just look at the rim as the Spalding Orange will be going in you Dr. Seuss Mother Goose NBA Head...
For the Hawks super-sub Dennis the "Menace" Schroder and for Dubs the "General" D-Lee...both superb off the bench...
Glass Work as the offensive glass is huge...Rebound the Vegetable!
Penalty is your friend as the first to get to the stripe take full advantage of it being the aggressor staying the aggressor...
NBA Heads enjoy this one as this has the potential to be one of the best of 82 in 2014-15...congrats Hawks Nation and Dub Nation on fantastic seasons from the Bluedude and Bluedude Sportstalk home of the award-winning "PLAYBOOK"!
Note: I am going after the Bulls Job when it becomes available on Linked In...and I am not laughing!
