I'll tell you this.
We will know exactly what the Warriors are made of after the month of November.
What a brutal stretch of games.
The Nuggets, after acquiring Andre Iguodala, are one of the better mid-level teams in the Western Conference. They have the defensive talent and athleticism to run and stop almost any team in the West.
This will be the Warriors' third matchup against the Nuggets this month, and coming away with a series win is crucial. With two of their matchups coming at home, I like their chances.
With a speedy team like the Nuggets, the Warriors should be able to slow things down and win this one down low. Bogut and Lee are superior to any offensive scheme the Nuggets can come up with in the post with JaVale McGee and Kenneth Faried—something completely new to the Golden State Warriors franchise.
The best part about this one is that it's a home game with one of the best crowds in the NBA. The Nuggets are going to be a tough team, but having a superior home record is going to help if the Warriors' struggles on the road follow them into this season.
It's going to be a tough month, but the Warriors can come out of these eight-game with an above .500 record, it will prove that they belong it the 2013 NBA playoffs.
