Krome, you gotta stop asking the trick questions, bro. I almost said "yes" for the second straight game. :wink:

Warriors, with confidence, by 10.

This should be an easy win for the Warriors - they are playing well, and Atlanta is not. Hopefully the Ws get off to a quick start and get ahead early, and a lot of the bench guys contribute again to keep everyone fresh for the tough week ahead.

Yeah - Atlanta has gone 3-7 in their last 10, and the only quality team that they beat in that stretch was Golden State. The Ws were without Jackson in the last game, and Harrington was awful. Everyone is playing better now for Golden State (except maybe Baron), and the team seems to be more focused as well. They have now had two games in a row with good starts in the first quarter, and the main reason they lost to Atlanta was the horrible start that they had. Other than the first quarter, Golden State outplayed and outscored Atlanta last time as well.

those three in their last 10 games also happen to be 3 in their last 5...6 including todays loss to boston. not that i think the hawks will beat us this team, but i really dont think this is gonna be as easy as you make it out to be. we've lost the last 4 meetings against atlanta and i dont see them making this meeting any easier. it will be better having jackson for this one tho to contain whichever wingman is having a good night. wright had a good game against them last time too.

that said, warriors by 7 in a good game....but by no means will it be easy

Me too...


Dubs by 6. I think (at least, hope) that they'll try to get some payback from the game we lost at the Oracle against the Hawks. But it won't be easy...

This is the one game I can say we will definitely SMASH on the competition. Atlanta came up in our house and handled business. We haven't forgot about that, and we are going to make them pay at home. I know you guys haven't forgot that New Orleans game we played at their house. That was payback. Can't wait for this game. Warriors by 20+

I'm going to go out on a limb here..

W's jump out to a 20 point lead in the first half, and end up winning by 10.
Hawks will be kept under 100 pts. Wright gets 20mins and 18pts. Big game from our bench and starters.

I couldn't have drempt it better... :mrgreen:

This should be another payback game, like yesterday vs. the Jailblazers. THe Dubs have played very well on the road this year, and need to avenge that loss at home against the Hawks (and as krome mentioned they have a nice winning streak against us!). I really hope Jackattack is right that we get to see more of Brandan, like 25 min. or so.

Anybody know when Biedrins is due back? I haven't really heard anything...but I love the idea of BWright and Andris side by side!

Nothing is easy when you have had the kind of season and games the Warriors have. But I agree it should be easy but most of us thought that about the last Hawks game. But it is different circumstances B.Wright is playing well, Ellis continues to leave everyone in aw, Sjacks looks to of found his stroke, and we are getting excellent contributions from our bench. Warriors 10+.

As they said on the telecast, he will travel with the team for the roadtrip, but is not expected to suit up until they come back home. He is still a week or so away. Surgeries are always wierd.

They've had our number recently (4 in a row).

I think this game will be close.

We're going to have some issues in the post. Janny Hu is speculating that Dre might not make the roadtrip. ACK.

With Webb hurt (ok, against ATL, that should be ok) and Dre gone, we're going to be seeing a lot of Cro and BWeezy.

Maybe even a Cheesecakes signing since Kosta Coast is in the DLeague.

God help us, can we PLEASE not start Webber? Harrington or Croshere? Jim Barnett? Anybody but Webber...I think they can take this one...Monta gets 35 and the Ws by 7. Oh, and Clinton beats Obama in Ohio by 6 but Obama takes Texas by 2...
