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

This might be a game where Nelson might consider starting Wright.

Yeah, might see a lineup of Baron, Monta, Jackson, Pietrus, Wright.

Anyways, get ready to run. Should be a good game, and should be exciting as hell. I am trying to get all my homework done tonight so I have time to watch it tomorrow night. Cant wait. :mrgreen:

I can't wait for tomorrow's game! We all know how Baron performs when he knows everyone is watching lol. Nationally televised games are my favorite, really. You can tell everyone wants to do their very very best. I hope they play Shaq.. I wanna see how long he can last running against a real fast paced team. Yea the Suns are fast, but not fast like us. Dubs by 7.

This is a winnable game for the Warriors, it won't be easy, but it can (and will) get done. If Baron can have another 15-1 Ast/TO ratio night again, the Warriors will be off and running. Amare and Nash will have their way, but we need to tire out the Diesel and get him to turn the ball over a ton! Then let Baron and Monta go off to the races. This one should be fun

I have to admit, I am extremely glad that Shawn Marion is no longer on this team.

warriors by 14 in a game that goes back and forth and ends with a warrior run sparked by a jackson 3 with 5 left in the 4th. :mrgreen:

Eh... this is gonna be an interesting game. We'll see what the new Suns can do against a team that played faster than the old Suns did...

I'm confident we're gonna take this one. Shaq will be out of fuel by the 3rd quarter and we take this by 10.

Ive said if before and Ill say it again................HUGE!!! game.............given that the Fakers are going to get that 1st spot, and we need to move up to avoid them.

We need to bring the 3's back and run this old ass "running" team off the floor...............Im saying screw it and staying up to watch this one!

Also, I am so praying that Kobe does something more to his finger............I know its horrible.................but its Kobe!...............I think S-Jax should guard him tough and get lots of cheeky slaps on his finger when we play them twice. :evil: :evil: :evil:

Easily the biggest game of the year. A must if we're going to jump over the Suns. This one will go a long way in defining an upcoming playoff run. Because of last night's game, Nellie is going to have to use the bench wisely so has to have some fresh legs in the 4th quarter. This game should be very entertaining.

Definitely the biggest game of the year. Not only can we pick up a game against the Suns but it determines the tie breaker so it almost counts double with them. If we want to move up and try to finish around 5 or 6 and not the 8th seed this is a game we need to win.

I always love it when the Warriors, Lakers, & Suns play each other. From all the games remaining this season, I've been looking forward most to this & the double header against the Lakers in like a week.

If they play Shaq and try to run a half court game I don't want to hear ANY announcers talk about how they are a running team. If you can't run against the Dubs you are not a running team, simple and plain.

too much confidence, guys. this is definitely not easy, nor it is the most important game of the year. it is not going to be easy to climb up in the ranking - i say the 8th spot would be good come playoff time. and to get that 8th spot, we have to win the two remaining denver games, those are the crucial step to making the post-season

this said, tonight warriors by 20 ..........................
