It has been a disappointed start to the season for the Golden St Warriors as they enter play with a mark of 12-10 on the season. The Warriors have not been sharp on the defensive end of the court as they now rank 16th in the league by allowing 100 points per game. They have allowed 113 points or greater in three of their past five games. They have been hit with a critical injury as they are without Andre Iguodala for a month as he looks to heal from a hamstring problem. Iguiodala gives the Warriors a good defensive presence and rebounder so there is a huge void on the team at the current moment. Missing from the Warriors is lineup this season is Jarrett Jack who was lost in free agency. Jack gave Golden St a strong second unit on the court and is greatly missed. Dallas has shown much improvement over last year. They were without Dirk Nowitzki for much of the 2012-13 campaign and when he came back he was out of shape and struggled shooting the basketball. This year Nowitzki is second on the team in scoring as he averages 21 points per game and has 6 boards per contest. Dirk his hitting on 46.2% of his shots and 34.1% from the three point line. The Mavericks acquired Monta Ellis and Jose Calderon this season. Ellis leads the team in scoring with 21.5 points per game and he dishes 5 ½ assists per game.
