Five bold predictions for Warriors after the release of the 2022-23 NBA schedule – NBC Sports

The path of warriors to defend their championships has become more and more clear.

On Wednesday, the NBA Regular season schedules released For all thirty teams. Now that we know when and where Golden State will play all 82 games of the regular season, it’s time to grab the crystal ball and look at how the season unfolds.

Here are five bold predictions for Golden State next season:

Waste Championship

Emotions will run high on October 18 when Golden State is awarded the championship rings before their season-opening showdown against the Los Angeles Lakers at Chase Center.

The Warriors would win this game to start the season 1-0, but then they would get stuck trying to clear the starting gate.

During the first 20 games of the season, the Warriors will win just 11 games, with tough games against the Phoenix Suns (twice), Miami Heat (twice), Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets featured in the first five weeks of the schedule. Golden State is losing a few games it is supposed to win against hungry teams like the Sacramento Kings led by head coach Mike Brown, who the Warriors face three times during their first 12 competitions.

But don’t worry, Dub Nation. It may take some time for young players like James Wiseman, Jonathan Kominga and Moses Moody to settle into their new and prominent roles.

Just like last season, experienced warriors will be able to see the bigger picture. Legacies are not built in October and November. After a slow start to the season, Golden State will make its stride again before the calendar turns into December.

Curry Curry Through the Ages

Curry’s name is all over the Warriors team’s record book — and NBA records for that matter — but the one category he hasn’t touched yet is the team’s single-game scoring record.

Now, Curry won’t touch Wilt Chamberlain’s legendary 100-point game with the Philadelphia Warriors, arguably the most untouchable singles record in all sports.

But Curry will score 66 points in a single game this season, breaking the post-Chamberlain-era team record of 64, set by Rick Barry in 1974. The franchise moved to the Bay Area in 1962.)

Since this article is titled “Bold Predictions” and not just “Predictions,” we’re going to pencil in a specific game for this scoring blast – the December 5 home game against the Indiana Pacers.

It’s the perfect cure for an early-season hangover.

Warriors will end…

Fourth in the Western Conference. He put Golden State’s starter 11-9 this season behind the eight-ball in the early months, while the Los Angeles Clippers, Phoenix Suns and—gasply—the Memphis Grizzlies narrowly finished with more wins.

The fourth seed will not give Golden State a home advantage after the opening post-season round. But since the team ran last season, the championship cups were not distributed to regular season victories.

Here comes the device

For the first time since 2018-19, Klay Thompson will play a full season in the NBA.

After his glorious return to the field in January, Thompson showed off glimpses of the All-Star team five times, such as when he went to 41 points in the regular season final against the New Orleans Pelicans and those 30 points after the season against the Memphis Grizzlies which added to his resume. Autobiography “Game 6 Klay”.

In 32 games last season, Thompson averaged 20.9 points. He hit 38.5 percent from downtown across 32 regular season games and 22 playoffs. After recovering in the summer with no trace of rehab, Thompson returned to his career path and claimed the All-Star title for the sixth time.

In another chat about the award, Jordan Poole – motivated he will become a restricted free agent next summer – showed that his glimpses of star potential were real last season and he would become the first Warriors player in team history to win the sixth man. Year Award. The league owes him one after being named Player of the Year last year.

But unfortunately, not all news is positive for Warriors when it comes to trophies. For the second year in a row, Draymond Green has been disqualified from the Defensive Player of the Year award. And for the second year in a row, it goes to a Boston Celtics player — but this time, Robert Williams III.

Hang another banner

A watershed journey for The Warriors will not be easy. Fifth-seeded Golden State defeated the Denver Nuggets in six games and won a Hot Series over Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers in seven games. In the Western Conference Finals, the Warriors and the Grizzlies test their new rivalry at higher stakes. But once again, seasoned warriors win.

Giannis Antetokounmpo guides the healthy Milwaukee Bucks through the Eastern Conference to the 2023 NBA Finals. The Bucks lead a three-to-two streak, but the Warriors stole the last two races to claim their fifth title in the last nine years.

For Curry, Thompson, and Green, this is a championship ring for the thumbs.
