OKC are playing better under Brookes, but we should win. Warriors by 9

The Thunder are seriously starting Jeff Green at power forward...?

Now I know how teams look at us when they see Maggette at the 4. Dubs will take it, but the Thunder might make it interesting. Golden State loves to make the easy ones dramatic.

It will be 10 days since his injury. With a recovery time of 7-10 days, he should either be back for this game or the next. Even if he is cleared, I'd like to rest him unless we really need him. We've been playing well enough lately that we shouldn't have to force anyone into the line-up and risk further injury.

6-9 230. He is the definition of a tweener.
As long as he is on OKC he is going to have to be a PF.

It would be nice to see some consistency with this young team!

Back-to-back blowouts could actually be a great sign of consistent growth!

Warriors win by double-digits again!!

They also beat us this year. :oops:

I think if we show the same energy and chemistry from these past two games, we'll take this one easily. However, we are too unpredictable and inconsistent. I'll say W's by 8 though.

Guy has big man numbers eerily similar to Harrington.

A 6'9" guy who gets 6 rebounds a game, less than a block a night, and shoots 39% for three.

I think he's more of a defensive player though, in contrast to Harrington who at times was absent on defense.
