My prediction:

Phoenix 97
Golden State 99

Especially now that the Warriors actually have off days to rest and practice.

The first of the two big challenges! The Warriors have got to be hungry to get back after the loss last time

First real test, it's about time we start playing some top tier teams. And Phoenix is playiong a lot of small ball. It'll be interesting to see how we adapt to that kind of play.

With the game being at home, Warriors +5.

I really think the Warriors will come out smoking (maybe they will be smoking before the game :) )

I reckon the Warriors will win by just over 10. Murphy will play well but again it is JRich who has the real matchup advantage - Who comapres with him on the Suns........

Ugh, I don't like this game... I was about to vote -5, but I can't put a damper on us while we're on the biggest winning streak in the league. Warriors by 1. Maybe.

Both the Suns and the Warriors have been on a tear latley.
6 straight for the Suns and 5 straight for us. This will be a fun game,
and Im predicting a high scoring game. If we keep up the D we should get out of this one with the W.
Warriors by 3

X Factor of this Game is our Frontcourt. If we can create a strong frontcourt presence, they will be in trouble. We have the best defensive 3pt percentage in the league, and this team pratically lives outside with only two teams above them in 3pt attempted which golden state is one of them. Phoniex Suns take loads of jumpshots and if we can create enough defensive stops by countering their 3pting and create those missed shots into our own points.

This will be a long night for the Suns.

We'll win by 7+

big test for the W's, Phoenix is on fire right now, if we can pull this one out it would be a great sign of things to come.

Krome, I've said this before, but nice job on these game threads, they're great.

Phoenix is on a back-to-back after taking on Portland.

I know what you mean though. Phoenix is still not going to be easy to beat, but I think we'll come up with a win at the end.

warriors finally get rest. they know they need to prove themselves against a better team, and they'll probably come out strong. and who do they got to stop ike down low? i say if dunleavy has a poor game, we're even. if he has a good game, we win big

These game previews are very nice and a good way to start talking about an upcoming game, well done.

Like I said before, the Warriors will and should be hungry to win against the Suns after they lost the first game this season against them. The defense of the Warriors is a good advantage but the team seems to have the ability to score inside and out. Outside of marion, noone on the Suns can rally score inside. Important is that the team gets a hand in the face of the Suns shooters. Open shots the Suns eat up and the Warriors are doing a great job not giving teams open outside shots

I hope the warriors really pull this one out, if not all good. seems like every time the warriors lose this year, they get really pissed off and seem to work harder.
