Dallas is a beatable team, as long as we are playing well. If they can go out there and execute, as they did in the fourth quarter tonight, they can beat them.

It is going to be really close. I say Warriors by two, but it could just as well be Dallas by two. If God is a Warrior fan, we could use His help on Wednesday. :wink:

The team is only one and a half games behind the mighty Mavs! With a win, the team can almost break even with them. Who would have thought!

The team just has to keep doing what they have been doing and SJackson's defense on Dirk will be a major factor like always.

I'm not worried about Dirk-Diggler! I worried about a big game from Josh Howard! As of lately we been having trouble guarding bigger SG!

Happy new year, Krome. And, once again, thanks for the great job you do on the games forum.

As for this game... it's Dallas, for god's sake. If we can beat any team, that's Dallas.

We should be able to go into a game in Dallas with more confidence than if we were playing some JV team at some high school in North Dakota...okay a little obscure (it has been a LONG night). Not to say we shouldn't take them seriously, but we do have their number. I expect Jackson to score 30+...Warriors by 6. Happy New Year (again) :!:

I like our chances against a mavericks team that will be rusty from three days of not playing, especially with out momentum from our last win. That being said, I see the Warriors dropping this one, as I think the Mavs still are going to be putting in a bit of extra juice against us when they play us this season and they're at home.

That said, going 3-0 on this road trip would be awesome.

My head says Dallas, my heart says Ws. My heart usually gets me into trouble, but hell, Ws by 17 in a blowout. Damp and Dirk are sent running to the bench in tears...

Sounds good. :wink:

Seriously, they can do that. If everybody gets hot, they are as dangerous as anyone.
