I was thinking about that, but we have something going in the Warriors forum, which is why I didnt mention it. I like the idea, though. :wink:

KEY game for us. If we're gonna make the playoffs, we have to win this one. Of course, we also have to win the next one against Seattle and hope for Denver to lose at home against Houston, but this is the one that scares me. If we lose, it's over.

For the first time in the season, I'm not gonna make any prediction about the game.

I know I know..........its tough (well, I dont have to wake for anything right now/still, so its the only reason I can at the moment)..........but I think after this stretch of watching live games like this for the first time in my life..........I will still stay up every now and then for important games no matter what.........cant go totally back to waiting 20 hours to know what happend and not posting on here until I do.

Also, its not today, its tomorrow night we play.........you have to get up early on Tuesday?..........come on man, ONE GAME! pull a sickie!!!............itll finish about 6:30-7:00am ish..........come on, take one for the team!!! :wink:

Tomorrow?. F*ck... today it's when Denver plays their back-to-back. I thought we played the same day.

In any case, same problem any day of the week. It would be different on weekends, but I just can't on weekdays (although I might make an exception if we ever make it to the finals).

Yup...........kind of makes it better, as we will know our fate after tonight and know whether we have a chance going into Phoenix (man, if Denver loses tonight and........well, I cant even think about it right now!)

Ok then............I tried my best. :wink:

Seriously though, you would have to stay up just if we made the playoffs right now!!! given the miracle that that would be. :wink:

No Cuban or Avery to give us a half roster ... I expect Shaq, Nash, and company to bring it. It's been wild ride.. and all the players deserve credit to bring the season to a close with two must win games. Playoff intensity a month before the playoffs, just great bball at its best. I am looking for Captain Jack to vindicate Nellie and small ball because the clock is ticking.

Where did you see this? I haven't read it anywhere.

On the injury front, though, Battier is likely not to play for Houston, according to the reports I've read. But Houston beat Phoenix without Battier on Friday.
