The Warriors will play seven of their next nine games at home.
Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) -
The Golden State Warriors return home Wednesday night from an unsuccessful road trip to welcome the road-weary Dallas Mavericks to Oracle Arena.
The Warriors went 1-2 on a recent trek east and are just 6-8 as the visitor. They are 6-2 at Oracle Arena, where they will play seven of the next nine games.
"Great teams are great on the road and at home, especially when you know you're better than the other team," said Warriors guard Klay Thompson.
Golden State lost big in Houston, then won big in Memphis, but the rubber match of the trip came in the form of a 115-111 loss in Charlotte Monday night.
Rivers excited for Boston return

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
The Boston Celtics have won 17 NBA Championships in their storied history.
Only six men have coached a Celtics championship team. Names like Red Auerbach, Bill Russell, K.C. Jones and Tommy Heinsohn are in the Hall of Fame and icons in the city of Boston, a city with its fair share of sports legends.
Doc Rivers is one of those six men to guide the Celtics to a title.
That should get him iconic status in Beantown, but there was a little bit of acrimony in this divorce. Rivers didn't want to stick around for G.M. Danny Ainge's rebuilding plan, so the Celtics traded him for a first-round pick to the Los Angeles Clippers this past offseason.
