Light NBA card this evening
(AP) — There are just four games this evening in the NBA and without doubt the marquee matchup has Golden State playing host to Oklahoma City. The Warriors saw their 16-game winning streak come to an end two nights ago while the Thunder have won their last seven straight and 9 of 10. On the year the Warriors are a league-best 21-3, in first place in the Atlantic Division, while the Thunder are 12-13 in the Northwest.
The Warriors will once again not have center Andrew Bogut (BOH’-gut) for the game as he continues to nurse a troublesome right knee.
Chicago’s Bulls are the top team in the Central Division and tonight they’re home to the lowly Knicks. New York is just 5-22 on the year while the Bulls are 15-9, a game up on Cleveland.
Two Southwest Division teams are meeting tonight in Houston as the Rockets entertain the Pelicans. Houston has won three straight and eight of 10 to improve to 19-5 on the year. The Pelicans are in the division basement with a mark of 12-12.
In the final game of the night the Kings are playing host to the Bucks. The home team has lost four straight.
