after losing to the beast from the east, our warriors are bound to bounce against this injury depleted mediocre team.

If Biedrins and Marco are back, I think we could make it interesting. Either that or it'll be over by the end of the third.

damn martin, you have really gone off the deep end. I hope the other aspects of your life haven't taken the same turn.
I am Aussiebiedrins' fantasy. BITCH!

It shouldn't be too hard to shut down Williams. Obviously Lebron will get his, but if we can limit their offense to mainly Lebron + one other player, we'll win. Especially with Biedrins back. I think if he had played against the Thunder, we would have easily won.

I'm going to this one. Should be big fun. The interesting thing is, talent-wise, other than Lebron, the Cavs do not have overwhelming talent. Of course, that is like saying other than Obama, the Democrats aren't an impressive political party...should be close, but either way, I feel blessed to see King James in person.

btw, the warriors have now lost 50% of their games by 8 points or less...
the good news? Thye have the 2nd highest scoring team in the league (only a fraction of a point behind the lakers_the bad news? Their defense is worst in the league by 5 points...

I am very curious how the rotation will be now that Ellis is back.

watching Lebron play in person? Not sure any bball can answer anything other than yes, bro. I bet you would probably throw your dog under a bus if u could catch King James live!

i think there are two people we need to watch out for in this game...mo williams and varejao. like jpat said, lebron will get his. but if we can close off williams and box out varejao then we should be fine...oh and wally...i hate that guy...maybe we should just put marcus williams in to tackle wally and completely take him out of the game :-#
