I've been a Warriors fan since they traded Chris Webber. Can you imagine how that's like....

Ws play the Suns tight, but I can't see it - closer than one would think...Suns by 6. Suns are the best team going/neck and neck w/the Mavs and play the game incredibly beautifully. They are the Walsh 49ers, the Gretzky Oilers, the Pele Brazil team, Woods, Federer, Angelina Jolie as far as having a beautiful game...

I think its gonna be a good game but I can't see the warriors winning after the minutes everyone had to play tonight, they never play very well on back to backs.

Suns by 5 or less

A win here could mentally put the Warriors up a lot for later games, especially since its away at Phoenix. I want a Warriors win, but Suns will most likely win, but the Warriors still have a good chance.

This one sounds like a blowout, to me.

I expect the Suns to beat the crap out of the Warriors. Not sure how much it'll be by, but if Golden State even remotely stays in the game (by 5 or less), it'll be worthy of praise.

I gotta have faith... Dubs by 5. Barnes is lights out, Baron goes for 30 and Monta gets 22, Biedrins 14-12-3.

Oh my, a back-to-back?... especially since it's the Suns? Nonetheless I think the Warriors can pull it out. Though they are struggling in back-to-back games.

Warriors by 4.

I can't see us taking this one. The Suns are a much better team, and we're not at full strength.

Suns win by 13 points.

You knew this was gonna be a loss no matter what, which is why I'm so happy about the win last night. As long as win can stick around at/a little above .500 for a while, we'll be able to put together a run sooner or later. Hopefully.

The Suns are due for a loss (winning 5 in a row) so I'll keep faith with the Dubs to pull this one out.

And a heavy dose of Ike might help in getting some in foul trouble and possible slow them down. (Of course, there's no opportunity for that to happen.) :roll:

Ike is good, but it is kind of hard for him to get people in foul trouble from the bench :roll:
