Spurs are mighty but the team has beaten them once already this season. If the game is close for the first 2 1/2 quarters, go with all they've got but if not, rest Baron, JRich and most of the other main guys and look to the next game.


Spurs by 8 in a tight game

This game worries me as the Spurs frontline will dominate on the boards all night...especially if Nelson puts Al Harrington at center.

Lets hope the Warriors have enough left to pull a victory out of San Antonio.

Yeah - I think this is the toughest matchup for the Ws left on their schedule. Really don't expect them to win, just hope that they can keep it close to continue to build their confidence and keep momentum, to bring it back home for the game against Utah.

Kind of a "win-win" situation. If they play close, then they build confidence that they can play with anyone. If they lose big, then some of the guys can get some rest and be fresher for the Utah game.

Whoa whoa wee, king of the castle, king of the castle. Hopefully I can say that tomorrow. But this is the game everyone is predicting to be the only loss during these last 6 games really so I can't expect a W. But I do expect a fight after being embarrassed and blown out of their own house last week! The Warriors will show retribution... but will they get the W? Let's hope.

Fun stat... the Warriors have split four road games with all three Texas teams, while the rest of the NBA has gone 22-84 in that state. We're 3-0 against the Mavs. 1-2 against the Spurs. 2-1 against the Rockets.

Watch for the Spurs to match the 'smallish' ball, moving Duncan to center and putting Manu out on the floor. Its going to be a nasty ballgame, especially is the W's stay close. Spurs play dirty, after all.

If they put Findly on BD, he could be more limited than he has been lately. FRonting Duncan will be less effective than with Yao, as Duncan can pass out. Ellis will be harrassed by PArker (ineffective) and Manu (effective). Still, I see a close game.

Spurs by 4; 98-94.

If the ws win it will be the most shocking win of the year...maybe, just maybe, they can sneak by, but hard to see them catching the spurs napping.

I would tend to agree. And unfortunately, with the Spurs beating Phoenix, they now have a shot at catching Phoenix for the #2 seed, so they should be motivated to play. All bad news for the Ws. But, let's see what happens!

Good effort! Shooting was quite disgraceful and just too many threes again, though the Spurs took a fair share of their own. Beaten on rebounding by quite a bit. Is Biedrins injured or just didn't get the minutes?

This was the game the team was expected to lose and they put up a fight. On to the next game

Really good effort by the Ws, too bad Pietrus, Biedrins and Barnes couldn't contribute much tonight. Biedrins sprained his ankle last night, so he probably was a little off tonight.

Now on to root for the Nuggets to beat up on the Clips. Cmon Denver....
