Warriors SBNation Blog: Golden State of Mind

The last time the Warriors lost a game was Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals. Since then, they have remained undefeated, Summer League included.

The Warriors took the last two games of the WCF, swept the Cavs in the Finals, and have now tacked on four wins to begin their summer play, three wins in Sacramento and a win to kick off their stay in Las Vegas.

As for the Rockets, they started off their Summer League with a win on Friday, and they’ll look to ride the momentum and return to action with strong play today as they face their nemesis.

Today, I’m keeping a close eye on Isaiah Hartenstein and Trevon Duval to see if they can prove that their strong performances in Friday’s win were not a fluke.

For the Warriors, they field their rookie first-round pick Jacob Evans III, former Hawks guard Josh Magette, and Jordan Bell, who probably shouldn’t be playing Summer League to begin with.
