Hey, Krome, what reports say that he will be signed on Tuesday? Dont want to sound dumb, but everything I have read has been inconclusive. :| Maybe I'm just slow. :wink:

*EDITED* I just saw the article in another thread. Disregard this....

Anyways, yeah, Warriors always have good luck with Houston. As I say every time they play, please, for the love of God, watch out for Luther Head. Somebody guard him..... [-o<

Warriors by 7. I'm scared to guess any blowout number. :wink:

I think we need to stop making predictions of the score because we always expect them to blow whatever team out and it's ending up being a close game. So STOP MAKING PREDICTIONS!! :mrgreen:

I predict... a close game. Not a shocking prediction, because we seem to make most games close, but whatever...

I'm just worried about our good streak against Houston. We cannot win every single game against them.

PS: I hope I don't jinx us with that last comment.

Houston and New Orleans

Warriors have been winning ugly

And In an effort to stay in the race for a Playoff Seed the Warriors have been running the star 5 Dry

But Nelson and the Warriors See the Light Ahead... The AllStar Break...

Nelson and the Warriors Know if they can Grind Hard for the Rest of January They will be rewarded by an AllStar Break and then A Month of Home Games with only 1 away game at Utah....
If we can finish off this month 2-0 or 1-1 we give our selves incredible momentum going in to the 2nd half of the Season

The Warriors will win this Game at Houston because...

Nelson Will Play The Best Players on the Warriors the Majority of the Game
The Warriors are 28-11 with Jackson in the lineup
Warriors are coming off a Win, Houston is coming off a lost... Momentum Favors the W's
Houston is 11-9 @ Home
Warriors are 14-10 on the road
Yao Ming is not 100% and might not play
T-Mac had a good game @ Utah but T-Mac isnt 100%

Warriors in a Close Game

It's a bit scary to see Houston's starting line-up. They'll probably play with four starters being 6'8'' or taller... We should adjust somehow or is Baron capable of defending Battier? I know he's strong enough, but what about size differences? :?

As he is everytime we play Houston, Al is the key player. Our road play has been very inspiring this year, and I look for the Dubs to continue that as this is a huge game against a team close in the standings. Usually our most "interesting" games are against the bottom tier teams. Monta with another great game I'm sure..and I guess no more score pedictions :mrgreen:

Even with T-Mac back, I can't see us losing to Houston. Yao will not be able to run with us, T-Mac will get his 30 points and thats it.


Yao limited to 17 points and 11 rebounds

T-Mac gets 31 and 5 rebounds

Baron has his typical double double

Monta has 28

Jax hits two clutch 3's in the 4th

Warriors win by 4

This will be a win. Houston doesn't scare me. It's a scary game because it's important, not because we're playing the Rockets. We've spanked them twice this year and I don't see why we can't beat them a 3rd time. We are a huge thorn in their side and a terrible match up for them. Someone is going to have to come out of the woodwork and score 25 for them to win. I'm not predicting a blowout but I am predicting a solid win.

How much can C.J. Watson get for jersey No. 4? -- the Monday night update
From Janny Hu.

The very-belated update: Well, would've gotten this up sooner had I not been stuck on a flight to Houston. But here's the Webber timeline as best I can gather: He's already signed. Official team annoucement is Tuesday. He'll be in Oakland working out Tue/Wed while the Warriors play the Rockets and Hornets. The team usually doesn't practice after back-to-backs, and with a five-day break (aka MAJOR practice time) looming after Friday's home game against Charlotte, it doesn't look like Webber's first game back will be until next Thursday. And that would be a doozy -- at home against Chicago on TNT.
