Warriors go for third straight win

Oakland, CA (Sports Network) – The Golden State Warriors will take aim at
their first three-game winning streak since late November, when they host the
road weary Chicago Bulls at The Arena in Oakland. Golden State won a season-
best four in a row from November 21-29.

The Warriors came up with a huge 97-90 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on
Wednesday night.

Erick Dampier finished with 21 points and 19 rebounds to lead the Warriors to
the win. Brian Cardinal added 21 points and nine rebounds off the bench for
the Warriors, while Speedy Claxton posted 19 points.

Jason Richardson added 17 points and 10 boards for Golden State, which
overcame an eight-point deficit late in the third to pick up the win.

Golden State is 14-7 at home this season, including winning three straight and
six of its last eight at The Arena.

The Bulls suffered a 115-99 loss at the hands of Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi
Center on Wednesday night.

Chicago has lost the first two of its seven-game road trip to fall to 5-17 in
such contests. The Bulls are 13-33 and reside in the cellar of the Central
Division.

Chicago has now dropped 22 straight road games to Western Conference foes and
is a dismal 1-17 overall against the West this season.

Eddy Curry had 21 points and Jamal Crawford scored 20 for the Bulls, who have
lost eight of their last nine overall and six straight road contests.

The Warriors have won six of the last eight meetings in this series, including
four straight at home. All-time, Chicago owns a 70-55 advantage in
this series.
