What you need to know about the Warriors
The Dubs netted a 123-116 win over the Utah Jazz this past Saturday. Golden State relied on the efforts of small forward Otto Porter Jr., who had 20 points and eight assists along with seven rebounds, and point guard Stephen Curry, who shot 6-for-12 from downtown and finished with 28 points, nine assists and six boards.
Draymond Green missed that game and the previous one due to health and safety protocols, but he’s been cleared prior to Monday’s game. While Curry leads the offense, Green is the captain of the defense and has powered the Warriors to the No. 1 defensive rating in the league. The Warriors are allowing six fewer points per game in the 31 games Green has played in as opposed to the four contests he’s missed.
What you need to know about the Heat
Meanwhile, Miami was close but no cigar on Sunday as it fell 115-113 to the Sacramento Kings. Despite the loss, Miami had strong showings from center Omer Yurtseven, who posted a double-double on 22 points and 16 boards, and point guard Kyle Lowry, who dropped a double-double on 14 points and 12 dimes in addition to five rebounds.
Miami was down six players due to protocols on Sunday, including Duncan Robinson, P.J. Tucker and Max Strus. Their statuses are up in the air for Monday’s game, but the Heat will definitely be without Bam Adebayo (thumb), Markieff Morris (neck) and Dewayne Dedmon (knee). With all of the various absences, Miami will have to rely even more on Jimmy Butler who is one of two NBA players averaging at least 20 points, five rebounds, five assists and two steals per game.
