Bogut was part of our shoot around for the Heat game. I think he is close to coming back.

Loss, but our future prospects for the season are fine. Not worried at all.

I guess an optimistic way of looking at it...we only have 3 more losses than the Spurs...but obviously lack in the W column.

Is Curry gonna be back for this game?

I can only hope that ankle injury was just him rolling that ankle, and they decided to sit him against the Heat, as a mere precaution.

It appears Curry will travel with the team on this weekend back to back roadtrip. Curry is listed as day-to-day. Since the games are back to back, Mark Jackson might be better suited to letting Curry rest and get him healed up for the Monday's matchup against the Clippers and Wednesday's OKC.

I wish i could say the contrary, but sans curry (which is 90 percent, whichever way you look at it, either still hurting or for precautionary reasons re tommorow's game) - a blowout with warriors at the receiving end, of course, unless san antonio shoots 25 from the field and we shoot 65.

I'm gonna say win tonight.

David Lee is still our all-star and he thrives against slower defenders. Who, on San Antonio, is gonna lock him up?

I say Dubs by 4, DLee with a 25 and 15 game. Get hyped, WCW.

Tim Duncan is still an elite defender.

No doubt. But he's not a quick defender.

Last 2 games versus Duncan, Lee averages 13 and 9.5. The game before that? 31 and 12 on 68%, so it's more than possible.

Sure, hopefully you are right. I'd love a win in SA.

Klay is figuring what he does best on the break. Three point shooting. That gives us the most points per possession on fast breaks for Klay shots. He shoots the transition three so well. Hopefully he keeps doing that.

Jesus, Old Man Duncan can ball...

But Lee's triple slashing at 6/3/3 early. Not shooting it great, but despite shooting a worse percentage the Dubs still lead. Keep the foot on the gas pedal in the rebound/turnover department and make sure it's close in the 4th!
