Boston is playing the best ball of the season, and we're... well, away from home.

If the Warriors begin another one of those nine game losing streaks like they did last season, you can pretty much call this season over. They need to seriously snap out of this funk and come back strong.

Warriors CAN win this, but i'd call it a toss-up slightly in celtics favor.

This is the most win-able road game thus far, besides Toronto.

Warriors BETTER pull this one out.

Dunno about this game. The Warriors do show signs at times. We're 1-9 on the road. This HAS to be a MUST win.

This is a toss up. The Celts are winning recently but they are not a good team yet. Pierce will go off but Jefferson (who has been a monster lately) has to be contained. Wouldn't be surprised if gerald Green goes off in this game!


Warriors by 5 on faith alone

:shock:


That'd be something. I also read that Monta reaggravated an ankle injury. Anyone know of what ankle injury he had? I had heard nothing about it

Yep, I just think they'll have their best chance to win a game during this trip against Orlando (yeah, I know the Magic are tougher than the Celts... call it a hunch).

Do you really think Ike will be in the court if the game comes down to a last shot?

According to Fanball.com, Monta will be out of tonight and Friday night's games with an ankle injury he sustained at the end of the New Jersey game on Monday night.

Nellie said the ankle has swollen up and that Ellis was wearing a walking boot. His return to the court is unknown. I am guessing he will miss the last three games of the road trip and be back Tuesday against the Sixers.
