The Warriors’ winning streak was snapped at the hands of the Memphis Grizzlies. The Warriors had a chance to win the game, but they came up a bit short. Some questionable calls down the stretch hurt the dubs, but they still didn’t hit some shots that could have won them the game.
Marc Gasol and Zack Randolph combined for 41 points and 17 rebounds. The Warriors could have really used Andrew Bogut and David Lee to contain one of the better front-courts in the NBA. Serge Ibaka and Kevin Durant come into Oracle on Thursday night and according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Warriors will have to deal with the Thunder’s front line without Lee and Bogut:
Warriors center Andrew Bogut (right knee) and power forward David Lee (left hamstring) are listed as out for Thursday’s game vs. OKC.

The Thunder are on a seven game winning streak and they are quickly climbing up the standings. Since Kevin Durant returned to the line-up, the Thunder are a different team and they will be a tough test for the Warriors.
The Warriors narrowly beat the Thunder on November 23 in OKC, but they were without Russell Westbrook and Durant. The Thunder will coming into this game looking for some revenge and the Warriors must be ready to face a team with a lot of momentum.
