Friday, November 2 vs. Memphis Grizzlies
We will see what the new-look Warriors are made of here in their home opener against one of the top teams in the West. This will be a good test of big men, with Andrew Bogut and David Lee squaring off against Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph.
Harrison Barnes gets his welcome to the NBA assignment, going up against Rudy Gay.
Monday, November 5 at Sacramento Kings
The Warriors playing against their Northern California rival is usually a good matchup, or is it a poor one? They do usually have battles, but the Warriors need a big win here to establish dominance against lesser talented teams.
Friday, November 16 at Minnesota Timberwolves
This is the Warriors' first game of a road trip that includes three games in four nights, and it's against a team with the same playoff aspirations as they have. This game can set the tone that things will be different when they play away from Oracle this season.
For a team that historically struggles on the road, this would be a great start to turn their struggles around. It also gives them the chance to show Brandon Roy he should have signed with them instead.
Thursday, November 29, vs. Denver Nuggets
This is the third time the Warriors face the Nuggets this month in what should be the rubber match. The Warriors need to come out the series winner here, as the Nuggets are going to be a fierce competitor for a spot in the NBA playoffs. It is also the first nationally televised (not counting the NBATV appearance) game for the Warriors to show off their new-look defense.
October/November W-L Prediction: 8- 7
Wins: Suns, Kings, Cavs, Nuggets, Hawks, Mavericks, Timberwolves, Nuggets
Losses: Grizzlies, Clippers, Lakers, Timberwolves, Thunder, Nets, Nuggets
