I seriously hope Marco will be back for this game. Hopefully he will start.

Mavs seem to be struggling. They recently were blown out by the Bucks (including blowing it to the Celtics). Warriors should be able to take this one.

we've been playing good at home but we're not the same team on the road...

if azubuike, morrow and watson play well, we'll have a good chance of winning.

Let's remember here that we've been at home for many games in a row now. As much as I'd like to claim that we can take the Mavs, I highly doubt we can in the end. We are still injury ridden (any word on Wright yet?) and when we don't play at Oracle, we don't win, for the most part.

Nonetheless, it should be entertaining. I don't think we're gonna get beat every single game of this road trip, but I doubt we get more than 1-2 wins. I guess against the mavs is as good as any to get the win.

mavs got embarrassed by the celtics they're going to look to bash on us.

Man i am wanting to see Monta and JC, I really hope they work out to be an offensive FORCE!(if crawfords back) Mavs have been playing awful lately, but they always have a little extra motivation against us.
I love morrows picture he looks so cocky in the greatest way. Also i have friends who've taken mugg shots that look the exact same haha :mrgreen:

Dallas one of the softest teams in the NBA. Dirk being the softest.

Whats the likely hood of MArk Cuban being at the game ? Can't stand that obnoxious bastard.

Hope Nelson throws Randolph a bone since he has family watching but doubt it.

OK so the questions:

1) is belinelli good for this game?
2) I know wright is still out, but has anyone been keeping track of how much longer he will roughly be out for?
3) how do we have a 6'5" player consistently starting at Power Forward?

OK so for the answers:

1 - Cant see anything on Marco apart from the original 10-14 day diagnosis.

2 - http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_11543298?source=rss

3 - Don Nelson.

I like how NO-ONE is asking or has even mentioned how long Crawford is going to be out for.
