Do you think the trade rumors lit a fire in Baron's belly?

I don't like the looks of this one. Can you say let-down game?

2 highest scoring teams in the league and worst defensive teams? Either a thrilling 150-146 track meet or a Suns slaughter - I am passing on this one, too hard to call

As it's the second of back-to-back games, played at Phoenix, the Suns are on a roll... I can't see us taking this one. Suns by 10.

btw, with this game we start a trip of six games out of The Oracle, and we'll also have a similar trip right before the all star game. These games are the most important of the season... I hope we can pull off 2 or 3 wins in this trip.

btw (again), good poll, Krome. Baron seems to play better when there are rumors about him... And he's been specially productive the last three games.

I don't see the Warriors winning this one tonight, but this is a team that when playing with confidence can compete and potentially beat any team on any given night. If this game was at the Oracle, I would fancy the Warriors chances, but seeing as it is on the road, Phoenix will likely win.

I think the Warriors can and will hang around for the first half before the Suns pull away at the end. The Warriors showed they can play with the Suns in Oakland earlier this season and actually should have beat them without Baron Davis playing.

This game the Warriors might surprise us all. It would be great to get a huge win over the Suns to start this long, tough road trip.

I don't see the Warriors coming with the W tonight. But hey, you never know. Defense is not to be used with the Suns. But Amare has been ballin' since his increased playing time.

I think i will be fine with the game as long as warriors don't give them the open three pointers, sometimes i hate the zone.

I'd just be happy with the team competing and not quitting. This is a great chance to run and gun and try to perfect it for 48mins

Awful 1st quarter but great after that so far. Ended the 3rd quarter not so good but the team has a chance to win this one. Biedrins a non factor due to foul trouble. It'd be great to see him draw fouls from Amare and Marion because they are in no foul trouble and that could be the difference at the end of the game

The boys put up a great effort and that is better than being blown out! They had a chance to win it and didn't step up enough. Baron had a pretty bad game statistically at least but so did Nash.

The big diffeeence was inside where Amare produced much more than Biedrins. That difference was the game and Biedrins has to learn to attack the opposition more and make them foul him.

Diaw played like last season
