If we win this one, it will be a serious momentum boost. Hopefully we can pull it out.

As I said about the game tonight, they need the bench to come up. Barnes will be back. Hudson might be back? Their team could be back up to full strength.

what i am afraid to Suns is their bench players like barbosa...this guy is killer if u let your guard down....also Diaw could put some good number like assist and reb.
if we really can slow S.nash then we have a chance to take this game...

W's by 6... :wink:

Should be a good battle. Suns are hot right now but the team spanked at home last year once and reckon they'll pull out a win.

Should be a fun game. I think neither team blows the other one out. My gut feeling is that the Warriors will open a large lead and poor execution down the stretch will blow it. The Warriors will either be left with a win that feels undeserved or a loss snatched from the jaws of victory.

That's for sure. One of the most attractive games on the NBA right now.

Still, the Suns are clearly a step above us. It will be a good test to see how much we've improved since the first games of the season.

Can we win?. Sure... Will we?. I think this time the Suns will get the W.

Sorry to be the only person to vote "no" thus far, but this game is gonna be ugly (especially if we're still without Matt Barnes and continue to give Pietrus big minutes).

The Warriors will trail by 15 at some point during the game... but it should still be a game in the 4th.

You know I actually love the way Pietrus is playing right now. I don't think I've seen any blatant bonehead plays from him in a while.

I also think this game could be Brandan's and/or Marco's coming out party.

From what I've heard, Barnes will be back for the game.

Pietrus has made a lot of dumb mistakes like carrying the ball, traveling, those types of things. He has also taken some bad shots. I really dont like him.

As for the rookies going off, they wont play. Marco wont play for sure, and Brandan will probably not play against a good team like Phoenix.

this will be a tough game, not only because the Suns are ballin right now but because this is almost like an extended part of the road trip. The first game back home after a long road trip, especially with only one day off is always tough...hopefully we can pull it out but Im a bit skeptical
