Warriors will have to stop this Red Hot team...since no on else in the league can. The Warriors should come out and have their best 1st qtr in weeks. I think Azu will have another great game, although I expect he and Al to come off the bench. Pietrus will probably start. Warriors with payback win by 11.

The Blazers will have four days of rest before this game. Their legs will definately be fresh for this game. After that overtime Spurs game, hopefully the Warriors will get enough rest before making the trip to Portland.

If I can recall, the last game we played against the Blazers, they ran with us the whole way. So the definate need to this win this game is to continue to play some serious defense.

Portland is one of the best teams of the league at home, and they'll be fresh to run with us, as Krome says.

This is gonna be an extremely difficult game to win for us. Can we do it?. Damn sure we can... but I think the Blazers will get the win this time.

That will change the next time they visit the Oracle, but for this game, Blazers by 6.

Going into the crib of the one of the hotter team in the league with one of the better home records. This is going to be a tall task. It will be close, but I don't think Warriors would be able to pull it off. Hopefully I am wrong on this one, wouldn't be the first time. :)

We should be able to take this one. However, I am worried about Aldridge he wasn't playing last time and they still beat us. He'll definitely give us some trouble in the middle. I think the key to this is being able to contain him without someone like Pryz going off at the same time.

Also, I wonder how Roy is gonna perform with that bruised tailbone of his, if he's not up to full strength he won't be able to penetrate and open up the outside shooters like webster and outlaw.

It should be a good one. :mrgreen:

after that 13 game winning streak and putting themselves in the playoff picture, i began to really hate portland. im prayng to the basketball gods that we could win this game, and after the loss, portland will begin to come back onto earth and lose more games!!! blazers shouldnt be this good :|

actually if you look at how long they have been in the jail ooops i mean doghouse :!: they should be this good. With the additions of ROY Brandon Roy, beastly LaMarcus Aldridge and the emergence of Travis Outlaw they should be pretty good. But as you said, not this damn good.

We will get revenge damnit.
