OAKLAND (AP) – When will the Golden State Warriors lose a game? Ever again? The defending NBA champs are now 13-0 after last night’s come-from-behind victory in Los Angeles over the Clippers. The Warriors now stand just two wins away from tying the best start in league history and this evening they are back home in Oakland to entertain the 8-3 Chicago Bulls.
On the extreme opposite end of things are the Philadelphia 76ers. They have lost all 12 of their games this season and tonight are on the road for a game with Charlotte. Over the last two seasons the Sixers have dropped 22 in a row.
San Antonio is doing what it does best: win. The Spurs have won their last six games and tonight are visiting the Pelicans in New Orleans.
The Mavericks are on a roll as they’ve won their last five games. This evening the Mavs are playing host to the Utah Jazz, who have won two straight.
The Thunder will be without Kevin Durant for tonight’s home game with New York. That’s the bad news for Thunder fans. The good news is that Russell Westbrook has had back-to-back 40-point games entering this evening’s contest with the Knicks.
The remaining games tonight feature the Celtics at home to the Nets, Detroit at Minnesota, Memphis entertaining Houston, Phoenix at Denver, the Lakers home to the Raptors and the Clippers playing the Blazers in Portland. The Blazers enter the game with a seven-game losing streak.
