I think Belinelli should get the start, Azubuike is in a funk right now.

We need to trade Crawford.

Azu and Beli play completely different positions, and what they do on the court is also way different. Also Azu has had some of his best games of the year over the last few weeks . . . I didn't get to see the game tonight or the one on Tuesday, but he's looked consistently good in the other recent games.

saint, Abyss is on Marco's jock on a number of forums so ignore.



That said, I think this will be the end of our little streak

Azu is our best defender against Kobe....

Stephen at the 4? Lol... This is like the most logical time to start Turiaf. Oh well. Lets get that draft pick baby!

That would be so tight to win four straight, esp. over kobe's crew

Definitely.....especially with the way that Randolph has played at the 5 spot backing up Turiaf. Start with Biedrins and Ronny up front and back up both of them with AR.

Hopefully Kobe and Gasol will be tired from the all-star game?

I think the warriors strategy was really smart this year - have NO ONE make the all-star team (or any of the all-star competitions) so we can get the maximum amount of rest for our players. plus they aren't going to be busy over the break so they can sit on the coach and analyze why they did not make the all-star team! genius!
