This has got to be a win! A loss here will derail most of the good that has happened the last week! To be a serious playoff team the boys have to beat the teams that are below them and fighting for a spot. Even though it is an away game, it is must wins now.

can any1 on the blazers team guard Baron Davis? Baron is too strong for any Blazer guard. We are obviously a better road team with a healthy roster, hopefully we beat Portland and keep our playoff dreams alive!

As long as Randolph doesn't torch us (and we did a pretty good job against Brand on Friday), we should get this win. Our backcourt is far superior to theirs.

Nice win streak and everything, but the Ws screw it all up and lose to the lowly Blazers.

I am hoping the Warriors finish the season off like how they did when they traded for Baron two years ago ending the season 14-5 with Baron in the starting lineup.

As for the game itself, if they lock down on Randolph and Roy, then the game is ours.

I both like and dislike the Warriors having to come from behind to try for the last spots. Randolph and Roy are the only ones the Warriors need to worry about. Both can put up 25+ on 'em, but so long as the we see them play as a T-E-A-M and continue Nellieball, they are fine.

That end of season run was the greatest run the team has had in so many years and was the start of all the high expectations (and rightfully so). A run like that would give the 7th seed and maybe even the 6th seed. Unlikely!

Ime Udoka?

Whatever happened to Martell Webster? Shouldn't Portland be giving him all the PT in the world considering that they are going nowhere this season?

Eh, I don't really like the matchup between the Warriors and Portland, but knowing that Portland hasn't beaten the Warriors in awhile.

20+, which will rest the players for the Dallas game.


edit: Sacramento is down 17, and Clippers lost; if Warriors win tonight they seize the 8th spot.

I coulda swore you were the guy a week ago clamoring for the Warriors to tank the season when things were looking dreary...? :scratch:

By the way... has anyone seen JSW, loyaltyisacurse, or J-Rich during this 4-game winning streak?
