Man, I am still pissed from Houston's game, so I shouldnt even be making predictions, but I will try and be unbiased.....

The game could be had if they guard Mo Pete. If he starts doing that sh*t that he always does, hiding behind screens by their fat ass big men, and chucking up threes with that ugly ass shot of his, and for some f*cking reason they go in, they will lose.....

Okay, I know that wasnt unbiased, but... whatever.

Warriors by 3 if Mo Pete doesnt start doing his sh*t.

I can't think of a better time for the Warriors to play the best team in the West...well at least the hottest for now. Coming off a disappointing game that was won by the refs (and the lab rat's FTs), and coming into a game that no one thinks they can win. The Warriors need to be underdogs in a game in order for them to play with their all. They always look lazy against bottom tier teams (ie NY and MIN)

Paul will be Paul, and West will be West. We need to control Peterson (as sfsfsf plainly pointed out) and that old, broken back *****r Peja. The long ball killed us in the last meeting. Warriors CAN win this game!

Oh, thats another thing!!! They NEED to guard the perimeter guys. That is what has been killing them. That Houston game is an example. Head, Novak, Battier, all of them, just standing there and shooting.

Pete, Peja, and Paul (three P's :mrgreen: ) are all necessary to guard on the perimeter.

And oh my God, did you see f'n Steve Novak come in there and start sinking down threes!? God damn that guy. Right when he came in, I thought, "Oh, Christ, he is going to kill us." And he did! Dumb f*ck Pietrus stands there and watches him shoot that god damn lucky ass shot all night! ****!!!!!

Also, I am still waiting for someone to come on here and ATTEMPT to defend Pietrus' play. If he plays tomorrow night, I will be pissed! Maybe even as pissed as I am right now!!!!!

Yeah, I got anger problems, bro. :wink:

I like it that everyone is worried the Warriors will lose this game. Because typically when this happens, the Warriors come right back around and surprise everyone with a win :)

Based on what happen the last time they met the Hornets, they need to guard Peja on the perimeter. If I am not mistaken, that guy hit his first seven threes in that game.
I've been a Warriors fan since they traded Chris Webber. Can you imagine how that's like....
