I'm afraid of back-to-backs. Have we won any back-to-back this season?.

Still, I'm not as high on the Bobcats as others. They usually need a big game by both Wallace and Okafor to have a chance to win. They have some decent players (Morrison, Felton, May... all of them good, but not consistently good. Or not yet, at least) but still are building. They'll be a force in two years (if allowed to be, as Bob Johnson seems more keen on making a profit than having a winner... or so I've heard. Although having MJ on board will probably change that).

In any case, I'm not sure what to think of this game, but only due to our road woes and the fact that it's a back-to-back. Still, I'm picking the Dubs for this one. By 2.

We crushed them last time off a close win. We beat the Nets on a last second shot, then crushed the Bobcats.

So after Friday's must-need win, im picking the Dubs big.

Dubs by 15

A back-to-back you say? Oh no. But I keeps faithful for my Warriors!

Gerald Wallace, Matt Carroll, or Emeka Okafor go off but the Dubs still win by 4.

This team just can't get it done on the road. Not even against the goddamned bobcats (we did get killed by Atlanta LBJ-less Cleveland).

The only two who can really kill us are Gerald Wallace and Emeka. Even if they do, I bet we'll still win. Warriors by 14.

It's looking a little precarious. We need to:

A) Grab some boards
B) Cut down on the TOs

Still think we should make this.

Damn, we had this game, too. We were up by 10 in the 2nd quarter and had momentum and let them back in the game with poor play, missed shots, and turnovers.

37 points in the 2nd half will not get it done, and we really took a dump in the 4th with no offensive rhythm whatsover.

Felton outplayed BD in the end. Bastard! :x

We need to go on a big run, and right now if we want to even think about playoffs.

Ugh... what an ugly game. We certainly should have won this one, but we keep taking too many dumb shots. 4-21 3s?, after 2-20 the other day? If we rely on so many threes we're going to lose more than win...

Knew I shouldn't have left the house. As soon as I left, I heard couple neighbors yelling at how horrible the Warriors were playing. Terrible 2nd half. These type of games just kill your spirit. You had a chance to win, and not only win, but win your first back-to-back of the season. Then you blow it. Ouch.

The Warriors would be a legit playoff team in the West if the road woes never took on.
