The Warriors have the best record in the NBA, which has been a constant this season. Only 19 games are left in the 2014-15 campaign and it’s time to start thinking about the post-season.
The main concern all year has been the team’s health, especially when you consider what happened last year. Andrew Bogut was unavailable to play in the post-season because of a broken rib last season and David Lee was not his usual self.
With the playoffs on the horizon, the Warriors have earned the right to rest some of their key players. According to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle, Steve Kerr will give Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Bogut and Andre Iguodala the night off:
Bogut, Iguodala, Curry and Thompson will rest tonight.

The Nuggets are not a real threat in the Western Conference and it should be an easy victory for the Dubs, but without three of their starters and Andre Iguodala, this game will be much closer than we all expected.
Kerr comes from the school of Greg Popovich, so this is not much of a surprise. The Warriors have a seven game advantage in the Western Conference, so the number one seed is looking good right now.
The Warriors have one of the deepest teams in the league, so they should be able to fight for a win tonight.
