Now THAT is funnier than Rips beard................ :shock:

Sorry but this is the first game (apart from New Orleans) that we play a good team............this isnt going to be pretty, or it could be typical Warriors and lose to/barely beat bad teams and then beat a good team.

Eh... Pistons by 10. I hope we can make it a close one, and in that case we might have a chance to beat them, but this team still lacks experience to defeat the top teams.

Iverson could score 50 here lol. That said, we match up well inside with them. Haven't been able to say that in a very long time

I think Nelson will start this one and glue himself to Iverson. Everybody needs to chip Iverson and take a shot at him at every opportunity. I dont want to see the Answer hurt...but Id love to see him spend 75% of the game picking his ass up off the floor. Lets activate Hendrix to set some bone crushing screens on him. Only hope for this game is to out physical them!

As with last year's Warriors, I believe they play to their competition. With the Hornets, we kept with them the whole game and had a chance to win it at the end. With Memphis twice/NJ/Min we played like shiet but ended up squeezing out a couple W's their.

With the arrival of Randolph and the playing time of Belinelli slowly increasing, the bench will be the key to victory here. Azu has solidified himself as one of the most productive bench players in the NBA. Not to mention Corey coming back and Ronny.

The key to a W here is to limit the damage done by AI of course. I think Jack will be on him most of the game, as he is constantly guarding the best player on the opposite team.

Prediction:

Reality: Pistons by 11
Hope: Warriors by 2

When I think Pistons vs. Warriors, I remember we got out to something like a 22 point lead against them last year at home...and we lost. One of those Warriors moments that didn't surprise you.

Tomorrow's a national tv game too. We usually play up for those. What's the W's record on national tv games since 2006? It has to be a winning record.
100.
