Full squad could take the Clips. W's starting lineup is very solid right now, and I like seeing the player rotation that we've seen the last coupld of games. Gotta watch the Clips big men, but it should be winnable with a days rest.

W's by 6.

Another spot toward the playoffs.

Like I said, one game at a time.

Interesting... Ewing starting over Cassell?

Eh, maybe he's hurt.

I know this for a fact, the Warriors will win.

8+

Davis will give a clinic to Ewing, Richardson is greater than Mobley, SJax is just assisting and killing; will hold down Maggatte, Elton Brand will score but won't dominate, and Biedrins > Caveman.

If that's true, what a tough break. They already lost Livingston for the season, and possibly next season. No need to lose another man at the point.

Yo, Krome, you need to post something on this thread in addition to line-ups (that you already do so well).

So far, we've won the last two you've added a post on. 8)

Whatever, more wins for us.

The Warriors will have a chance in winning this game if they defend well against Brand and find ways to get around the basket with Brand lurking around.

With Maggette back in the lineup, the Warriors need to watch out for fouling this guy while he drives to the basket.

Cassell missed the last game against the Spurs with a groin injury. I would think Cassell would be a game-time decision. With the Warriors attempting to make a playoff push, I would suspect him back in the lineup for this game.

This is the key game of what's left of the season, not the Dallas one. The Clips are a direct rival for the playoffs... so this game counts double. One win for us and one more loss for them.

Hopefully we'll be able to take the win this time. Ws by 10.

Clips have the Warriors number the last few seasons! Just happens to be the way it is lately. Wonder whether SJackson is healthy enough to play as he is not 100% yet. The team needs to get back to one game off 50% to be in a real good position to take the 7th or 8th spot, as I think some of the teams fighting for the last spots will win more than they'll lose from now on. That means a 6 game streak or thereabouts and that is highly unlikely. Want the boys to win but the Clips do well against them.



Clippers by 3 in a very tight game

Thanks, Krome. Yeah, we need to seal-off Brand on the inside, for he blocks and changes many shots--not to mention the rebounds he gets. Getting him in foul trouble would be awesome.

Big game. If we get this and the Suns, Pistons and Heat win (all pretty likely) it suddenly seems quite possible again. And they don't have a decent point guard in a very half-court oriented system. I say W's by 12 with bounce-back offensive performances from Ellis and Richardson.
