I thought everybody was sold on the idea of blowing the season for Al Horford? :wink:

Haven't seen anybody mention this, but if we get the 8th spot, and hopefully we will, do you know who the Warriors will be up against? Dallas Mavericks. The chances for the Warriors upsetting the Dallas Mavericks is very high. The Warriors lineup seems to disrupt the way they play and Warriors somehow pick apart them with ease. Not just that, we have Don Nelson as the coach.....Game Over. Thats why I've been saying we pick up Acie Law or Haseem Thabeet in the 20s, because the Warriors have a chance at winning the first series.

The opportunity was there, everyone they needed loss, two teams vying for the last two spots were facing off, and they seized the opportunity. Jus' gotta take care of the Blazers(who are suprisingly in the hunt) and then on to Dallas.



The night definately did go in the team's favour. The Blazers is very winnable and should be a win and the Mavs will be a good measuring stick for both teams - For the mavs, seeing if they are really better this season and breaking their jinx against the team and for us it will be if we are capable of beating an elite team still. Would be a psychological win if the team ends up facing the Mavs in the 1st round as well

The rest of the season is definitely in the Warriors favor. They have the easiest schedule out of all the teams clawing for the last 7th and 8th spots. And to be greedy, even the 6th if the Lakers continue their struggles. If we make the playoffs, I'd like the Warriors to draw the Spurs or Mavs to face. MAYBE the Suns. Seems like they're slowly starting to show that they are running out of gas. Can't run all season with only using a seven player rotation.

don't know about that, homes. It will be an incredible story if they make the playoffs, and they can probably get a game or two from the Mavs, but an upset would rank with Nuggets/Sonics as the greatest of all time...Mavs are on their way to being the most dominant regular season team since the 95-96 bulls.

Have to agree with colt. The Mavs are looking unbelievable and beating them would be one of the biggest upsets ever

Why?. Did you have any doubt that the Mavs would lost to us? :wink:

I'm pretty sure that the only team they don't want to face in the playoffs are the Ws.

So if possible the team should try to get the 8th spoy and not the 7th. A form of tanking :mrgreen:
