the Warriors can not lose back-to-back...our Playoffs started today, and we laid an egg tonight. The Warriors need to come out with a vengeance tomorrow night. Garnett was used sparingly tonight, and I expect the same again tomorrow. Hopefully Baron can come back at home and start (and finish) like he started tonight. Let's go Dubs!

This is one of those games in which I'm sure we're gonna lose and the team ends up giving their best and beating a strong rival when nobody expected them.

So.... Celtics by 4.




And, before you say anything, yeah, I'm aware this post makes no sense at all. That's how bamboozled I am about this game.



And also yeah, I just wanted to say bamboozled. Bamboozled. Bamboozled. Bamboozled. Bamboozled. Bamboozled... God, what a funny word. :mrgreen:

Ohh the game................Im am that worried about this game and the result of losing two in a row in the West..............that Im not going to comment.

Also, do you guys realise (hear on the broadcast last night) that out of the 29 games we have left...........there are 9 back to backs! ouch.

Yeah, I don't know how the schedule was made this year, but it's pretty weird. Lots of games at homes to start the season, 10 of 11 at home in the middle of it, lots of back to backs in the final months... Just crazy.

That's what I'm talking about! We need to shrug last nights' loss off, and beat the Celtics!! I say the W's win tonight, not based on any knowledge of the game, but just that I know they are the type of competitors that refuse to lose, especially back to back. I expect an all out effort by our guys and a very loud Oracle. W's by 6

Go Warriors!!

I wanna say we can pull this one out, but I can't. KG is back with limited minutes, and of course they got Ray Ray and Pierce. I think Big Baby, Perkins, KG, Pierce, and Posey will be too much for the Dubs to handle.

Predictions:

Wright/Marco get some playing time (Ouch)
Baron gets a double double
Monta with 20+
Pierce dominates
