We need to stop Tinsley for supplying ball to JO in order to win the game...i have bad feeling about these 2 guys....we need to stop him at all cost.M dunleavy also pretty dangerous if we give him space in 3's area.
But, i believe , We believe, All believe we going to win this game...

W's by 6...could be close game.

I dont feel too strongly about this game. Barely beat them at home, and now we go to their place. Everybody has gotta bring their A game the whole game. EVERYBODY.

That said, Warriors by 3. Close game with Jackson doing some late game magic.

I could see us losing this game. Mike Dunleavy probably hates the Warriors, and is looking for revenge for us beating them. Plus, we are on the back end of a back to back, while they are fresh. However, they are still a crappy team. So it's really up in the air.

I hope Tinsley elbow Monta again. So he can BEAST it up.

We need to expand our winning streak to get some respect and attention around the league. Look at those Blazers damn it. Brandon Roy rank 10 in MVP so far and at 11 is Baron :cry:

Obviously they will need to bring a better game than tonight. As it has been mentioned in other threads, the back-to-back does not worry me much with the Warriors. Hopefully the shots will fall early, Baron got some rest tonight, but he needs more. We need to limit the scoring from O'Neal and Suckleavy and make the rest of them beat us. I expect Jack to have his first good shooting night in a while. He'll get 25, another 10 dimes for Baron...Warriors by 7.

This one worries me. The past 2 games the Dubs have not been sharp despite the wins. Conseco has been strangely quite this year, but I have a feeling the return of SJax will have them fired up. If the boys have SJax back, we pull it out late 4th in a very tight one.

Hate to say... but Warriors lose by 5.

:oops:

My home prediction was pretty much dead on... hopefully I'm wrong here.

Can they extend? absolutely, but this one is worrisome for sure. Indy barely lost last time, and this is one I could see them losing. Hope I'm wrong...No doubt, the Ws are a better team, but they have no answer for O'Neal, and Murphy and the dungster have major buffalo chips on their shoulders that the unanimous consenus is the Ws robbed Indy in the trade.

We are perfectly able to win this one. With that said, if we allow O'Neal to dominate inside like the other day, I'm not that confident that we can win it. We have to, somewhat, slow him down. We have to make Dunleavy, Tinsley and Granger beat us, not Jermaine. Then we'll have a good chance to win this one.

Gotta keep the faith. Dubs by 3.

Well, it seems that every time I'm worried about a potential loss, the Warriors win in a blowout. Since I'm worried about this game, I predict a win by 13 (not quite a blowout but a convincing win on the road). Harrington is due for a big game but Biedrins needs to snap out of his funk soon because his scoring has been atrocious the past four games.

its rare to see don nelson not make a defensive adjustment. i say this time JO doesnt score as much. he still gets 3 blocks in this one, but the warriors hold him to about 15. jackson has a good game. monta is gonna beast and show up tinsley.

warriors by 7 in a close matchup that ends with the warriors shooting FTs since the 5 minutes mark in the 4th qtr.

EDIT//
oh and 3-5 technicals are called (not counting defensive 3 secs)

Few notes:

- Dunleavy HELLA wanted it last game in the Roaracle. At home, he'll probably have another decent game against the Dubs. Than again, seeing as thats what eveyone expects him to do, history shows that Dunleavy will flat-out not show up if everyone expects him to.

- Watch the **** out for Jermaine! I'm talking to you, Stephen (who seems to have fallen in love with that post-up, spin-move, weak-sauce-shot combo in the past couple of games).

- Speaking of SJax, expect him to get the Dunleavy treatment in Indy again.

- Harrington never has two bad shows in a row. Expect Big Al to hit up Indy for 25-28 points (5 three's) and 8 rebounds on their home floor.

EMan....care to venture a guess on how the techs are distributed tonight?
Taking a stab here:
1. SJax (ok that's a given)
2. Barnes (given no. 2)
3. Tinsley (after repeated Monta beatdowns)
