Hopefully we have the momentum and confidence to carry over and beat the Rockets. Key Word ball movement it works.

They are going to have to keep two bigs in the game when Yao is in.
If we can keep AB and Turiaf's foul count low, we have a chance.

Steph Curry fakin Chris Anderson out of his jock: awesome!
look on Turiaf's face: priceless

Im scarred that the small ball win against the bucks may get nelson going again. If we go small against the rockets were screwed. We should play them exactly like the last game, hopefully Turiaff can stay out of foul trouble and nelson will let Wright play.
Aint no king, but im royal. A lifetime Golden State Warrior like Adonal Foyle ( FIRE DON NELSON )

Only problem with playing Biedrins and Turiaf together is that we have no backup at C. You saw what happened last time they both fouled out...

Haha, you know what, you're right! I was so focused on Biedrins and Turiaf I didn't pay attention to the other players :oops:

I read on Fox this morning that Artest may not make the trip with the Rockets. He went off in the 2nd half last time....as did Yao once Turiaf was not around to disrupt his rhythm. I say get physical with Yao, if you are gonna foul him, make him pull his big ass off the floor everytime.
