I don't think I've ever made the 1st post...anyways. The Dubs absolutely have to bounce back in this game. Sure the Bulls are coming off of kicking the crap out of Miami, but we need t get angry. Monta needs to get back and have another 18+ game. And if we have a lead, we cannot let up--keep pushing! Warriors will take out their frustration on the Bulls, Warriors by 11

It seems that whenever the W's suffer a morale crushing type loss, they come back and take it out on the next team. The Bulls will be that team. W's by 15.

Yep... except I believe that 16 may be a bit too generous. Dubs by 5. :wink:

The Bulls are talented, but they don't have a coach at the moment, so its shooting fish in a barrell. Plus, the Dubs are pissed that they lost to the Pacers.

Isn't it sad that even if we say the Warriors will win (against a sub-500 team)... its STILL usually a close game (2-5 points)???

What does that say about the CONSISTENCY of the Dubs???

True, but I think it is more an issue of focus.

Warriors will win no doubt. We always come up in national games. Bulls are terrible, Warriors will run run run.

This is a nationally televised ESPN game so I expect Boomdizzle to show up in a major way. I think we'll get this one by 6.

As of this posting (1/18/08), the Warriors have employed 14 different starting lineups this season.

WIN-PERCENTAGE WHEN PLAYER IS IN STARTING LINEUP (GS)

66.6% = Stephen Jackson (33)
66.6% = Al Harrington (30)
60.6% = Andris Biedrins (33)
60.0% = Monta Ellis (30)
57.5% = Baron Davis (40)
50.0% = Matt Barnes (12)
37.5% = Kelenna Azubuike (14)
14.3% = Mickael Pietrus (7)
00.0% = Brandan Wright (1)

The Warriors best starting lineup (Biedrins, Jackson, Harrington, Ellis, and Davis) are 12-2 in 14 games this year. That's 85.7%, folks.

Interestingly enough, in the 4 games that Kelenna Azubuike started over Monta Ellis, the Warriors are 4-0. Monta Ellis actually scored the Warrior high for any player off the bench in one of those contests, netting 31 against the 76ers on the 9th of this month.

Oh, and krome, ol' buddy: Stephen Jackson is gonna be out this game with some sort of problem with his toe. I think Matt Barnes may start in his place, but it may be Kelenna Azubuike.
