Yep, we're takin' this game by storm. The Warriors will be pissed and will come out with fire in front of the home crowd. The Mavs will feel the wrath of the bay. And Charles will eat his words. Back against the Kings on the Warriors first TNT game of the season, he said we were not going to the playoffs. What happened? He predicts the Warriors to lose the rest of his series. What will happen? We'll see. I predict the Warriors get the upset series win and Charles will go into rehab after eating every damn hate word he said about the Warriors. WE WINNING THIS GAME FELLAS!!! I GUAREN-DAMN-TEE THAT!

Haha, i'm actually glad Charles is betting against us, considering his gambling record. He has lost mulitiple millions of dollars gambling.

The warriors will come and blow the Mavericks right off the court.

As I've said before, the X-Factor is Al Harrington. If Al Harrington can step up and exploit Diop/Dampier with Harrington's speed and range, this should be a no contest real fast. But if he's a no show again, then the Mavs will win.

But I believe, he'll bounce back.

Warriors by 8.

Reggie was harpin about that the whole game and I actually agreed with him. Hes quicker than diop and Dumphere. He has enough handles to take Dump/diop off the dribble and take the ball to the hoop. I'm sure Reggie knows what he is talkin about when he analyzed our games since he did play with al and SJax for a couple of seasons.

W's got game 3 in the bag. The Mavs and the Refs barely squeeked out a win last night against a BD and SJ less Warriors.

Besides, I got 5 to 1 odds for the series. They have to win!!! [-o<

I was talking to a friend of mine who is a Mavericks fan and we both agreed that this game is MUCH more important to the Warriors than it is for the Mavericks. It is close to a must win for the Warriors. They must find a way to win tonight in front what will surely be a loud and energetic Oracle Arena.

Nellie and the players know exactly what they need to do to beat the Mavericks as was witnessed in game one. Now, they just need to go out there tonight and execute the game plan as we know they can.

I expect a close game, but I do think the Warriors will come out on top tonight. If the Warriors do lose, it will be very tough for them to rebound and win three of four against the Mavs in the playoffs. Tonight is huge for the Warriors!! I hope the team steps up and accepts the challenge.

The team just has to feel no pressure still and have fun with it all. The Mavs are #1 and are expected to do it all. The Warriors can't lose anything, they've already won alot
