haha...i would probably go with krome's since he is the game master. with TMac out of the lineup it helps me relax a lil more...but something tells me that this is still gonna be a relatively tough game

Like I said before, their three point shooting scares the hell out of me. They can shoot the building off, if they are hot. I just hope we catch them on a cold night.

No Tmac, we should take it, though a back to back with long travel day and early start is a concern, especially on the road. If Tmac does play, and I believe Krome's report he won't, then I am not so sure. BTW, Ws are 18-7 in last 25, so it ain't no fluke. With a fully healthy team (aka Davis and Jackson) Ws are 32-11

I've watched the Rockets several times this year and they've played better without T-Mac than with him. Luther Head and Bonzi Wells have stepped up their game replacing T-Mac and they seem to play a more balanced game, so I'm actually not worried about T-Mac coming back for this game (IF he comes back in time).

T-Mac is able to win a game by himself, but he's also a demanding presence that seems to dominate his team's tempo too much. That's not a good thing for Houston.

Anyways, I think we can win with or without T-Mac. We've been pretty succesful stopping Yao, so let's focus on that again and make Houston's backcourt try to beat us.

Same here... I've watched several games on NBA League Pass and Houston appears to play better as a team without T-Mac... We just need to run Yao off the court, and watch out for Scola who is playing pretty well recently and Warriors killer Lutherhead...

Seeing this game is a back to back and No Croshere, or Troy Hudson, I anticipate PT for Wright, POB and or Belinelli....

Warriors win 110-91

He is on my fantasy team. Hope he drops eighty, while the rest of the team gets five. \:D/

Damn that was a fun 4th Qtr..............balanced scoring game, everyone stepped up at some point in the game, Azu was great in the first half when it was largely a half court game.

Then to the 4th where we just exploded!!! 37 to 15!!! 7 thress in the 4th!!! 3 in a row to ice it with 3 minutes to go!!!

Very nice way to ring in the New Year and well worth staying up for over here and missing some partying.

Great win, again! They played very average the whole game, then f*cking exploded in the fourth. Jackson remains a clutch as hell player, as does Baron. Even Harrington got into it late. Nice to see them come together as a team to get the win. Very important win, as wins could be hard to get this week. Great job! :mrgreen:
