He turned it over the very end of the game. :mrgreen:

Great win. I love the way they played. I love that they took the lead early, but it seemed like they stopped playing. Get ready for Phoenix, and get ready to run. :wink:

Awesome win. Sometimes it's easy to forget how much work Davis is doing when someone like Monta scores 33 points, until you see his Assists.

Get ready for us to run, while Phoenix slows down for Shaq. :wink:

Good win, but it woulda been nice to get it more easily. Oh well, as someone already said, that's the Ws.

Needed the win to keep pace with everyone in the West!

can someone tell me where the F*** wright was in this game? damon bruce made a good point on the post game show on knbr. there is no reason why he should be getting DNP's. if the warriors want to make an impact and go deep in the playoffs, they need to start grooming wright. if not this year, for next year, i mean, what if nelson stays and this sh*t happens next year? as damon said, he can throw wrights career off course a bit.

by the way, nice win. i just wish that nellie would get over that rookie hating, because if a guy can play, he can play.

hey, damon brought it up not me. and i dont think he's out of line to bring it up. its true. wright can help a lot right now, in an area that we lack depth. still he rots on the bench. :bs:

MP2 (Pietrus) was the silent & underappreciated MVP.

7-14 (14 points), +12, 8 Rebounds, 2 Assists, 1 Steal... and most importantly:

NO TURN OVERS!!!

I think at this point in the season, its safe to say that we NEED Pietrus to succeed... sure, he was struggling in the beginning of the year, but no one, not even the people on this board can say "this is just one lucky game"; he is proving his worth to the team.

BTW: I already purchased a Pietrus jersey and I'll be down in LA for the LAC game in a week sporting the jersey w/ an AIR FRANCE sign.

FYI: MP's first dunk was NASTY (in a good way)!!! As far as being selfish, even Jim Barnett said at one point (not the exact quote), "Instead of passing... he (Pietrus) should take more shots." IMO, because of the haters, he passes up opportunities to shoot, to pass...

Good win for the Warriors, nice to see those slow starts are happening less frequently. It was a little upsetting to see a 20 pt lead dissolve, but give credit to Toronto, especially Ford, Parker and Calderon....they clawed back into this one. But of course the Dubs pulled away with those trademark 4th qtr stops.

I couldn't help but think as I was watching tonight, worried that the Warriors were going to give this one away, the Raptors played this game the way the Warriors have played a lot this year. Get down big, slowly get back into things, take your 1st lead of the game late and nail down the win. The Raptors played that role tonight...well of course, except for getting the win :wink:

MVP??? no way. he was big in this win yeah...he's been big for us lately ad im lovin it. since his recent pick up in his game ive been giving him his props. that fact that i picked him up in a couple fantasy leagues says a lot...he has definitely been important on our team and has bee WAY more productive than barnes (whom i still believe is relaceable as i mentioned this past summer). barnes has been counterproductive actually...especially for someone who this past summer said that he wants to prove that he was worth the MLE and longer than 1 year. but by no means was pietrus MVP of this game. if he was, he wouldnt have gotten fouled out so that he could stay in the game.

that said, allow me to rephrase one of your lines.... we need pietrus TO PLAY WELL to HELP US succeed. we can certainly succeed without him.

Good win, although it was a bit too close, considering that Toronto was without Bosh and, without him, they are an offensively challenged team. Another big game by Monta, proving once again how much he means to the this team. Another big game by Baron and good games by MP and Jax.

Doen't seem like Beans is up to speed yet, but no biggie. He still has ample time to recover.

Finally, why the f*ck Wright stayed in the bench for the whole game?. I mean, he can contribute when Beans and Webber are out and now, all of a sudden, he cannot even play 10 minutes?
