The Golden State Warriors arrived at the American Airlines Center with a drastically depleted frontcourt.

Center Andrew Bogut didn't make the trip due to a pelvis/groin contusion. Power forward David Lee is doubtful because of a strained right hamstring.

That takes 25.1 points and 19.5 rebounds per game out of Golden State's starting lineup. Bogut, the Warriors' defensive anchor, has averaged a double-double against Dallas in his career and 9.7 points and 12.7 rebounds against the Mavs this season. Lee has averaged 13.7 points and 11.3 rebounds in the three games between the teams this season, two of which the Warriors have won.

Jermaine O'Neal and Marreese Speights are penciled in as fill-in starters, but the Mavs expect to see a lot of smallball from the Warriors.

"We'll be scrambling around chasing smaller guys around, which is hard, too," Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said. "In many ways, it's harder."
