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

This one is gonna be a lot more difficult than the game against the Heat. If we can't stop (or, at least, reduce) Dwight's dominance in the boards, I can't see how we win this.

I think we'll need to use Wright more against the Magic. Al, Barnes, Pietrus... those guys won't be of help inside against a player like Dwight.


I'll try to be honest with my prediction. I think this will be a loss. Magic by 8.

igotta think al will be helping the big three ( who will all do well)
Monta had a slow start last night and will correct that
Davis is rested and his shot is falling in
Jackson has been on fire with his three
Al came off the bench and his shot was falling

magic had back to back on tues/wed they will be rested

im going with the ROAD WARRIORS by 6

Unfortunately I don't have the same feeling I had going into yesterdays game. As TMC said, if you can't match up against Howard then you're pretty much done against this team. Not many have been able to match up to Howard and thats why the magic are so good. Not to mention the break out year Turkey is having.

I'd love to be wrong, but I think our chances are slim of winning this game. Just hope howard has a bad night.

W's have got to get this one to make up for the Charlotte loss :banghead: Hopefully we can get Andris more minutes to get some rebounding help. Our backcourt will need to light it up tonight!

Biggest game of the season so far. We need this one to make up for the Bobcat loss.

Everyone to the boards. They're not much of an inside team except for Howard. Rashard isn't exactly a post player unless he's guarded by a 2 guard. Even then he likes to take the perimeter shot.

On the second of a back to back, against a rested team, with a dominant big-man, one would think it's not going to happen tonight. But then again these are Nellie's W's and anything is possible. The heart says the W's shoot the lights out and win an uptempo game, my gut says we get pounded down-low and lose by 10.

Hahaha and I'm sure there are many more like us! Gotta love Proposition 420 8)


On another note.....I noticed that in every interview Beans does, there is always at least one question he doesnt understand and gives some crazy off the wall answer that makes no sense. Lol Biedrins is hilarious

If we have to double The Beast, which we will, this game is going to be a three point shoot out.................we are number 1 in the league and Orlando is number 2.

Could be a fun game...............except for if we are getting our asses handed to us.

LETS GO!!!
