The Golden St Warriors enter play on Christmas night with injury concerns to their big man. Andrew Bogut sprained his ankle on Monday and his stratus for Wednesday’s game has been listed as questionable. Bogut has history of injury problems over his career so I wouldn’t expect the Warriors to take any chance with a foot injury to their injury prone center. Look for the Clippers to work the paint and expose the Warriors down in the low post with high percentage shots. The Clippers are 5-0 over their past five games and have won eight of their past nine games. They have won three of their past four road games as the team was very determined at the end of the East coast trip to build a positive road mark. The Golden St Warriors are only 16-3 straight up on the season and 9-4 on their home court. They have not played as well as last year and losing Jarrett Jack to free agency impacted the team’s production off the bench. Jack was used late in games for Mark Jackson when it came down two winning time as his absence from the team has impacted them in the win and loss column. The Clippers are a winning road team this year. They shoot 46.5% from the floor and rank 7th in shooting percentage this year. The Warriors are a good three point shooting team but the LA Clippers are the best team defending the three as opponents make 32% from beyond the arc against them.
