this game is way too important, and our guys seem to strive in this kind of game and under pressure.

Denver's Keys to winning according to their fans:
Maintaining a consistent sense of urgency to get into the playoffs and win the division.
Making the extra pass on a consistent basis.
Staying home on shooters
Treating the game like a playoff game in every way, regardless of the opponent.


LoL notice how its weirdly similar to ours?

Tough place to win, but they need this. I actually would not be shocked at all to see dallas fall out of the playoffs, the way things are trending, esp. without Dirk...I think just a few points will be scored: Ws 123, Denver 120...

All of the Denver players look like criminals in those mugshots, with the exception of Carter. I'm glad we have players who are cool enough to smile in their pics. :-o

BIG game, a key game for the our playoff hopes. And the way Denver is playing right now, it won't be easy.

I expect a game with lots of points and fast possesions. And we thrive at that game... but Denver thus, too. In any case, it will be entertaining and the team with the better shot % will take it.

I'm gonna pick Denver for this one, by 4. But I still believe both teams will make the playoffs and that Dallas will be the one left out.

There are a lot of reasons why this is the game of the season. First, we have to win on the road to actually win a playoff series. Denver is playing great ball right now, compared to the undermanned Dallas team, this is a better test of playoff basketball. Second, the winner gets the psychological edge (a game advantage) plus we get a half game more on top of Dallas. Finally, this is a test of our defensive intensity. If BD and Ellis are mentally tough on AI, or we bring out Kobe stopper III (Patterson the first, Pietrus the II) and Azu does a good job containing the Answer, we send a message to the league that we can actually play playoff ball against a non-jump shooting team. We all hate the Leastern Conference, but this game creates an actual meaningful regular season game.

While this game is important I don't think it's the key to thier season or a playoff birth.

The W's are coming off a win (that hasn't always been a good thing for the W's this year), have to go on the road, BD is as sick as a dog, the Nuggets are hot right now, not to mention that thin air element.

It goes back to not losing 2 in a row, as long as they split the Denver/Dallas games I think we are in good shape. Then as I said prior that 4 game road swing at the beginning or April will define the where they will be positioned for the rest of the year.

This is a huge game for the Warriors, they need a win in a bad way. The only game that I see as more important is the road game in Dallas...of course, every game at this point is huge!

I look for our Baron to matchup well with AI and Jackson to match up with Melo...which I figure leaves Monta to have the HUGE game...Let's go Dubs, Playoff Push! :headbang:

Huge game! We need the W and we need to show Denver that they are going nowhere. It's going to be tough, but I think we can do it. Battle of the PG's.

For those who have been to a recent W's game... does anyone know the name of the song that plays when the W's come out onto the floor for warmups?

And the W's know how to turn it on when it counts. This should be a very high intensity game.
