I've been a Warriors fan since they traded Chris Webber. Can you imagine how that's like....

I think that they have to. New Jersey is one of the most underperforming teams in the league, for the talent they have on it. The Warriors match up well, also, as there is no dominating big man on that team. The Dubs need to start driving more.

Warriors by 6. It was cut down from 13 late.

They BETTER take this one. and the next one (NY at home). Then off to denver and houston for a tough 2-road-game streak. Anything less than 2-2 would be very dangerouse for the playoff run

its gonna be a blowout. one of the toughest teams that we're gonna play in the next week and in the past 2 weeks...but i really think we'll blow em out. it's gonna start off like the game at NJ but itll end like the game in milwaukee.

It's better u pull out this game ...babe ,coz we all know W's don't like to lose 2 games in a row.
W's have to win this game coz is the home game....keep VC away from 'ON FIRE' or else we are in deep trouble....
I believe we can win this game by single digit...

Have to win...no excuse. Today's game was embarresing, at least I hope it was for the players. I look for Baron to bounce back after missing the game winning layup... :oops: . He should have at least 30, Barnes should keep his play up as well. And maybe the refs can try to not completely control the pace of the game...most Warrior home games look like road games, at least the officials make it look that way. Warriors by 6.

The Nets are definitely weird. Lots of talent in that team, but only Kidd and RJ are playing up to that talent. Williams and Boone are showing potential, Carter is proving once again he has no desire to be the player he can be and Frank... well, I think Frank won't be coaching the Nets next season.

Should be a win. I can't see us losing two straight at the Oracle against Minny and New Jersey.

I don't think it'll be a blowout. But a pissed off Warriors team (Esp. Baron Davis) doesn't look good for the Nets. Expect Baron to have good "fantasy" numbers!

Hopefully they'll work harder than they did on Monday. They got too overconfident, and I'd be surprised if the same thing happened Thursday.

KINGS just destroy them and it will repeat again this time....
Remember last year...Nets played with Kings first and they lost by 'clutch shot' in the last second...and then they played W's and happened the same one, monta kill them on last second...
So, this time we will kill them for sure....
Well, Kings play good games lately...we have to step up our game don't let the playoff hope slip away....WE STILL BELIEVE... :D

Why is New Jersey such a bad team? On paper, they should be at least a decent team. Anyway, this is a tough game to predict since NJ is capable of being a good team. Still, I can't see them beating a pissed off Warriors team on the road. W's by 15.

I think that is a good point, It really looked like the Ws thought they would win that one by just showing up...
