This game is a chance for payback. The Warriors should have the Rockets celebrating all those 3's burnt into their memory. The Rockets are trying to compete with the Clippers as our most despised opponent this season. I hope that everyone in the crowd gives them a warm welcome. :evil:

I think those new unis they will be wearing tonight will distract Houston enough to stay off target from distance. #-o

I really don't like those stripes on shorts. Though, I don't mind the yellow, looks nice. And I don't see what you guys hate it so much...hardly that other team will be distracted just by sleeves alone.

Been long since some quality basketball from our warriors. This game potentially has it all (for it to be a minor rivalry classic) - mismatches, crossmatches, mindmatches.
Contra to what has been implied, Jack will play tonight.
It's big.

Those unis will debut only next friday, against spurs, so no chance of this defensive stopper tonight.

Barnes does have the ability to post up, feed him.

Really paying attention to perimeter defense. And you know something our perimeter defense so far is lacking, they look lost in the perimeter.

Looking at Boguts foot speed.

Also the lack of driving to the hoop does infact hurt the warriors need more of that.

defense still in hangover mode, but the offense has picked it up. i think we scored here more fast break points than in whole dallas game.

Generally turnovers lead to fast-break, i am interested to see how we rank in fast-break points.

Right on que Klay

If Klay can finish inside on a consistent basis, that'll bring his game to a whole new level.

We need to keep driving, its part of the game. Its not like we are not capable we just don't do it enough since we shoot so well.
