two notes about the game.

one, it's in ontario canada, so that's good news: usually they broadcast exhibition games in foreign lands.

two, Nelson will not be attending the game due to family issues. my heart goes out to his brother-in-law, that's really sad to hear. btw you are a total prick if you make a monta-moped joke about this.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State Warriors coach Don Nelson has left the team for a family emergency and will miss Tuesday night's preseason game against the Los Angeles Lakers in Ontario.

Nelson is with his wife, Joy, in Southern California after her 54-year-old brother, Mark Van Kampen, was injured in a motorcycle accident Sunday and had to have one of his legs amputated, the team said Monday.

Nelson is expected to rejoin the team Wednesday. The Warriors play their final preseason game at home Thursday against New Orleans, then open the season at Oracle Arena against the Houston Rockets on Oct. 28.

Actually, it's Ontario, CA (Socal) the city where I work, so I'm hoping to be there at the game.

As for Nelson's brother in law, that's brutal.

Sucks about Nellies brother in law but Im kind of curious to see how different the team will play without him in the house at all. Hopefully we can see Keith Smart as a head coach for the first time.

First time?

Did you watch the end of last season when Nelson quit?

If I remember correctly that was only for like a quarter wasnt it? I have a bad memory but this will be the first time that Nelson wont be in the building at all and his assistants will be in control right?

I think he coached more than one quarter, but never coached without Nelson on the sideline.

"Man, this is what I've been dreaming of," Jackson said. "That lineup can play with any lineup in the NBA. I feel real confident in that lineup, and having our young guys come off the bench and add energy will be a good look for us. It looked great to see (Biedrins) and (Turiaf) play defense together and clean up every rebound. That makes it easier on us, because, once they get the rebound, we can run and we want to be a fast-paced team."

Not only do we get the Jackson-Kobe rematch, Keith Smart will command the Ws’ biggest line-up for the first time. With Ronny Turiaf joining Biedrins and Randolph in the front court, along with Ellis and Jackson in at the guards, the Warriors will go 6-10, 6-11, 6-10 (or 7-0, if you believe Randolph’s assessment of his height), 6-3, and 6-8. Will all those inches translate into defensive stops and rebounds? Stay tuned. Until then, a few preseason stats to chew on.
