Dubs should take this one comfortable. The starters looked ice cold today, but got nothing but rest in the 2nd half. They'll be ready to go.

Wright has earned himself some tick. At least 5 good minutes with Baron and Jackson. What do you say, Nellie??

Should be a win. I mean, they were bad before losing one of their top players to an injury. There's no reason why we shouldn't win. It'd be a major surprise if not.

What happened to Gasol? Is he hurt?

By the way, Warriors win assuming Croshere and Hudson don't get meaningful minutes.

Yeah, some problem with a toe. Out indefinitely.

easy win - no problem. This will be a 3-2 or - worst case scenario - a 2-3 road trip.

If they cannot beat the Grizzlies, something needs to change. They have been playing really well, up until the game today, and I am expecting them to have a huge bounce-back game, taking it out on the Grizz. Warriors by 18.

Should be a win but the Grizz are a good team when hitting their shots. Still don't think they have the firepower to beat the Warriors, especially with Gasol out.

This is a game I really worry about. On paper the Warriors are the better team and with Gasol likely not playing the edge goes even more to the Warriors. However, sometimes in a helter skelter kind of game the way this one will be played, Memphis might be up for this one and it could mean trouble for the Warriors. Last year this game as an old fashioned 1980's western conference shootout. Barnes went crazy, Mike Miller went crazy and the Warriors lost.

Against Detroit the Warriors looked slow and sluggish. I worry about fatigue with thie team and in particular Baron. The Warriors need to win this game. It might not seem like a big game, but this is a winnable game on the road and the Warriors do not need to start a losing streak.

Pretty ugly first quarter. Memphis shooting 70 some percent from the floor, but the Warriors are still within three. I'm not sure if that is luck or otherwise, but something isnt working. :|

Nice to see them making a run in the second. They are up 10 at half. Also, it was nice to see Marco get in there. Though he didnt play great, he looked a little better than he did at the beginning of the year. Lastly, Pietrus is still a dumb piece of sh*t.
