there is nothing impossible in NBA...so we will wish they play good D and slow down L.J....
If we play teamwork and keep focusing the game flow we will pull out his game...It's hard but we can win this game....
W's are rarely lost 2 in a row,they used to lost one and the next is win.

W's by 6.5

True it was a dissapointing loss, but I BELIEVE that they will make up for it and avenge the early season loss. Warriors by 3

we'll win ..but Nelson has to use
more than a 7 player rotation

im thinking he'll use more of the bench against the Cavs

I think we're good enough to win, but the second of a back-to-back on the road and against a talented (when Lebron plays) team in need of wins?.

I think the Cavs take this one. By 3.

We need Baron and Monta to exploit the backcourt of Daniel Gibson and Sasha Pavlovic... that's where we need our points. i expect the Warriors to come out firing...

i think the Warriors will need to get up big early to win this game, the 7th and 8th quarters of back to back games is where a game is meant to be loss.

there'll be plenty of 3 balls early in this game. I reckon Al Harrington will catch fire after going 0-6 from the floor last night.

and they need to exploit Beens on Z... they need to run the floor cause i know Z won't be running back and getting set on D. They;ll be a ton of easy fast break in the paint points to Beans... But Biedrins might struggle when Z is set playing D on him... 3 inches on hieght can be devastating for these 6'11 centres cause they are always so use to being the tallest man on the floor.

The warriors jumped out to a good lead (maybe there best 1st quarter of the season??? 38 points) IMPRESSIVE

Al Harrington been shooting the rock good too.

my predictions are almost spot on.
Lets pray there's no 4th Qtr meltdown!!!

Great win! The team is looking every bit a playoff one, even a contender. Baron comes back from a pretty bad game with a great one. SJackson outplayed Lebron and I can't believe what a star he is looking like. SJackson has outplayed the best players on the opposing team almost every time this season! He has to be an allstar, I think it's a travesty if he isn't and to a slightly lesser extent, Baron as well. The team basically won with five guys - Baron, Monta, Harrington, SJackson and Biedrins
