This is winnable, but damn no Randolph. I smell early foul trouble.

I don't trust this team to win two in a row, even tho they did it before. I think we're able to beat anybody... but not consistently.

So Cavs by 8.

If Monta Ellis manages to put up another Mid 30's and up type of game and we walk away with the win... well then the thought may occur to Lebron damn... maybe this where i should move this offseason... i mean LBJ has had very glowing reports about my BOI STEPHEN CURRY!

I dont see how anyone could think this is winnable. Lebron isnt going to let that happen and since we have noone and I mean NOONE that can guard him, then we will just be at his mercy.

Cavs by 15.

Going all positive again...

1) Nellie starts Beans at Center and Turiaf at PF. They get a ton of blocks and actually pull down some boards this time. Turiaf gets a huge block on LeBron!

2) Monta/Mags know they are in the spotlight and rise to the occasion.

3) Curry wants to impress one of his biggest fans... LeBron! Curry has his best game yet.

4) Morrow is pumped from his game saving three against the Kings. He has one of his best games.

5) The team wants to win one for AR. They ride the tide of positive vibes!

Warriors by 4.

well, we already are in a two in a row winning sequence. without bogus calls at denver, 3 in a row. i think you should get up your expectations.
especially, since 'warrior fans have low expectations' is an argument against, (sic!), expecting them to win.

i expect a win with lebron and monta dominating, but rest of cavaliers sucking while curry, biedrins, morrow and maggete have a nice night.

i think ellis will have a chance at guarding lebron and going for steals, if that does not work i expect maggs on him, but eventually tons of double/triple teams.

cleveland is slow team and as boston have trouble with fast teams like denver from the west (or maybe not, since they blow phnx easily). being on back to back they will try to slow down as possible but if we keep forcing turnovers and speeding up the tempo i think warriros have a legit chance.

the one thing that worries me (as a side factor) is that we have three days of rest before the game. we tend to to start slow with so much rest/rust on our legs.
again, good shooting night is a must.

The key is rebounding. Look how big the Cavs are. We need to start blocking out and not watching the ball bounce around.

Cavs throwback looks nice, warriors should have busted out with the city throw back.

Folks today we find out that size does in-fact matter.

It's early but so far the Warriors are looking better than the Cavs. Mags has already gone to the line 3 times (maybe 4.) Rad looks like he is trying to prove he should be a starter. Warriors are rotating well on D.
