Last season Rush played for the Minnesota Timberwolves, appearing in 47 games and averaging 4.2 points and 2.1 rebounds in 21.9 minutes. The Authentic Marquise Goodwin Jersey nine-year veteran has also played for Indiana, Golden State and Utah. He was on the Warriors’ team that won the 2015 NBA title.

Yes, yes, on paper, the Warriors should probably win this one, but again, schedule alert doesn’t take into account the teams, their records or player availability. It only takes into account the factors related to the schedule, and according to those factors, the Warriors will be fighting fatigue here. It will mark their third game in five days, and the second of a back-to-back set, requiring travel across a time zone. They’ll play at Sacramento on Feb. 2 (a nationally televised game, and those always get out late).

The Nuggets will have a one-day rest advantage entering this game.

On game day, the Eagles will be considered the away team, and will suit up in the away team’s locker room. That’s because the NFL rotates between the NFC and the AFC each year. Last year, the Atlanta Falcons were the home team at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.

This means the Patriots will be the home team.

When the Minnesota Vikings were still in the running, the possibility existed that they could play a home playoff game while being considered the away team. They lost to the Eagles in the NFC championship, however.

For those who like numbers that almost certainly mean nothing, the designated away teams have won 30 out of 51 Super Bowls to date, or close to 59 percent.

The home team is given a choice as to whether it will wear its home colored jerseys or away jerseys. It almost always dons the home jerseys, but six times in history a team has chosen to wear its away jerseys, including the Patriots this year.
