i have a feeling we're going to get destroyed by oden.

no one on our team matches up with LMA or Oden.

Turiaf on Oden maybe... hopefully...

maybe Buike will pull the same thing he did to Amare on LMA. Our only hope of winning.

Since when is Rodriguez starting over Steve Blake? Whatever, I hope the real lie Benjamin Button(Oden) has a good game. And that douche Roy better not go crazy on us even though its inevitable.

Blake is coming off shoulder injury, they are being careful on putting him on the floor so early. Roy doing it this year, he has suprised me how quick he has developed.

Turiaf can handler Oden . . . Im worried about Roy though more than anyone else. I guess Jack will cover him. Like to see Randolph in to match up against Aldridge.

Happy b-day tom crakerz!

we are going to get destroyed...

I think the success buike had over amare was due to the fact that amare wants to be traded, so he is playing soft, making sure he doesn't get injured.

LMA isn't squat compared to Amare but I still see Azu getting run over.

This is the one time I will say we NEED Kurz and Davidson to play. When Wright and AB are out and we are playing one of the best rebounding teams in the league.

Portland is damn good, but our Warriors have been awfully hot lately.

I'm guessing Golden State, single-digits, by way of surprisingly good defense. Just a hunch.

maggette did a good job on aldridge last time, although he relied on alot of flops/charges to get LA limited minutes and made him a non-factor. will be interesting to see if they (portland) comes up with a plan to deal with this mismatch, which i'm sure Nelly will exploit again since it worked so well last time.

and i think turiaf can man up to oden. should be a good game.

Turiaf vs. Oden should be fun to watch.
