Warriors hit the road heavy at the guard

The Golden State Warriors lost 123-116 to the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night at Oracle Arena, but the talk of the evening was the three-team trade that in part sent Toney Douglas to Miami and brought Boston guards Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks to the Bay Area.

The additions of Crawford and Brooks brings the Warriors roster to 15 players, seven of them being guards.

With Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala starting at the 1-3 spots, Crawford becomes the primary backup per head coach Mark Jackson and general manager Bob Myers with Brooks, Kent Bazemore and Nemanja Nedovic scrambling for minutes.

Crawford is expected to improve the bench scoring and facilitate the second unit while Brooks will get opportunities.

It will be interesting to see how the minutes at guard are divided up keeping in mind that Nedovic is out 2-3 weeks with a strained left hamstring he suffered in a D-League game with Santa Cruz on Jan. 3.

The Warriors (25-15) play at Oklahoma City on Friday and at New Orleans on Saturday. Both games can be seen on CSN Bay Area and the Thunder game will also be broadcast on ESPN.
