Golden State Warriors open their 2019-20 season with a home game against Los Angeles Clippers at their newly-built Chase Center, on Friday morning (IST).
Warriors are wandering on the uncharted territories this season following a summer where they lost superstar Kevin Durant to Brooklyn Nets, while Dubs' very won Klay Thompson ruled out for the rest of the season.
Now that shorthanded Warriors, who dominated the NBA for the most part of the last decade, are looking above their shoulders and towards the teams which can happily take the “Super Team” tag. Los Angeles Clippers is one of the puffed-up teams after superstar Kawhi Leonard joined the revolution in Los Angeles.
What competition it is? NBA Pre-season 2019
The match will be played between Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers at Chase Center, in San Francisco, California. The arena has a capacity of 18,064.
