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

No TV? No problem. Josh Smith is a sav. That kid is absolutely putting on a clinic whether it's offensively or defensively. Also, the return of Harrington in Atlanta. Will the crowd boo or cheer? I say boo. Also cannot forget the deadly Joe Johnson. Scary when he lights up the scoreboards.

Overall, I think the Dubz can handle this one. Have to bring that team spark back to their game. If the perimeter game is not going well, open it up by driving the lane! Anyway, Go W's!

Yeah, me too. We're so much better than the Hawks... but we play at half our potential on the road, and it's a back-to-back game. Gonna be tough.

Still, I still have faith in this team. W's by 3.

On warriors.com it has Foyle starting. I dont know what that's about....

If we lose here than I have lost faith. After yesterday's blowout and the Sharks horrible loss I'm feeling depressed. Please win.

I think we should now have

*shrug* as an option for all polls for road games...

We should win. on paper and talent wise. But who knows with their "lack of passion" as baron called it against the cavs...

I think this is a must win game. After last night's lifeless loss, the Warriors must find a way to win tonight or this road trip could become a complete disaster.

Atlanta has some talent and have played well at times this season. I just hope tonight is NOT one of those nights.

I do not have a good feeling about tonight. For some reason, I think the Warriors will lose tonight by a few points. I hope I am wrong though, but just a gut feeling telling me a loss is upon the Warriors tonight.

we have to get this one, just for morale sake. Tough loss last night hope we can bounce back and get a few wins on this road trip.

The Hawks have lost 27 games already.

The Warriors should be able to take them, even without large minutes from Baron or Al.

I had a bad feeling about last night. I have a good one about tonight. I think the W's get fired up and run the Hawks out of the gym in the first half, end up winning by 8.

...of course, they could lose by 25 too. I just don't think they will.

I think we'll get a win here, and I'm hoping it's not close. W's by 7. Suffice to say, if we lose here tonight, I'll officially be in the 'the season's over' camp. If they win, I can still hold out some hope. The dubs pretty much need to win 4 out of their next 6 to have any chance. 5 out of 6 would be preferable. They can do it, too. They've got Philly, Charlotte, and Atlanta, which should all be wins.

Not when you give up 70 points to the Hawks in the first half. I think we are on record pace for giving teams their season high for first quarter and first half scoring. I wonder which no-name Hawk will have their career high tonight?

I'm totally embarrassed and totally ashamed. We're getting our ass kicked by the Atlanta Hawks. Excuse me while I puke...

Bye bye season. See you again next year, I guess. This is the most abusive relationship I've ever been in. So much promise every time, and always the same result. This team is worse than it was before the trade! How is that possible? This is the worst defense I've ever seen. Great job calling everyone out, Baron. It really helped! Playoff chances at this point: -12% (carries over to next season)
