This is a very important game for them. Coming back after an embarassing loss is never easy. They need to get hot early and take advantage of the home court, for once. It is really good that their schedule starts to ease off a little bit.

I see the Warriors coming out strong and playing hard. They have to win this... they are just too talented not to. This is a game I see CJ getting some deserved playing time in.

Warriors by 14.

If Nelly starts Jackson, Warriors lose by 8.

I said it first...

Not a big Jackson fan, huh? Three different places you are blasting him. :wink:

You know what? I'm at every home game... and in person, you can see how unproductive Jackson is... he makes the right shots at the right time (missing the majority) so it makes him look clutch... end of story.

But you just said it.... he makes them at the right times. I'm not argueing that he shoots it too much, or he takes bad shots, or he hurts the team at times. But what you just said summed up my thoughts: Because he shoots them, and makes them, late in games, it helps us win them. I'm not defending him. The only point I am making is that, generally, he helps us more than he hurts us, while I dont think I can say that about Pietrus.

Memphis is one of the worst teams of the league. Not as bad as Minny, but almost... Shouldn't have problems beating them at home.

Dubs by 12.


btw, what's all this fuss about S-Jax lately?. Not so long ago, when he was out, we were losing EVERY SINGLE GAME. As long as we win, I don't care if he goes 2-30 in each game.

After an unmistakably stellar debut, CJ Watson will inexplicably only get 8 minutes of PT (welcome to the Warriors, rook'), Al Harrington will continue to come off the bench (despite being our best all-around scorer), Jackson and Ellis bounce back and score 25 a piece, and the Warriors take it by 14, with Brandan Wright and Marco Belinelli coming in 6 minutes into the 4th quarter.

I see the Warriors coming out furious in the 1st, at least they better. I would imagine the starters to be pretty embaressed after yesterday's game. For the first time in awhile the Warriors ned to have a great 1st qtr. A key to this game will be getting an early lead and maintaining it so that we can give the bench/rooks more minutes to end the 2nd and 4th qtrs. Warriors by 17!

and i couldn't take another loss of my basketball teams.so dubs by 10 (or any, i don't care as long as it's a good win.
plus, all this jackson talk - i'm both: like him and not. can't say which is the stronger one.
for the sake of simple logic - if,instead of all his missed ill shots, were played to give a chance to someone else and if there'd be a basket, there wouldn't simply be the need to be clutch - seems he may force us to a ditch from which eventually he would sometimes pull us out.

Warriors by 10.

I hope this game is in the NBA Broadband. I haven't watch a game for more than 3 weeks.
