we got an injured BD, but they got less depth than last year.
darious songaila is STARTING? i say chandler has a tougher time offensively w/o curry to help him out...and his scoring average last year wasn't even that good.

Warriors take it, definitely!
Baron averages more than 10 assists now after the game versus Bucks.

But the second night of back to backs can be an adventure. I was hoping we'd be able to blow Milwaukee out when we opened up at 13-point advantage so we could get our starters some rest in the 4th quarter but that didn't happen. Chicago will probably try to get an early lead on us but I think we have enough veterans to handle a quick start. Should be a very interesting game. It would be EXCELLENT to come home from our first road trip with a 3-0 record.

BTW - I love the previews you provide Krome!

This game should be about as close as tonights against the Bucks, but I expect them to pull it out for sure. I like each of our starting five over theirs.

The Bulls are a tough team, don't be so sure of an easy win for the Warriors. I wouldn't be surprised if they lost. It should be a close game, hopefully the warriors can continue with what they did against the Bucks

This should really be a good test. Back to back on the road, I imagine Baron's hammy is less healthy after a back to back as opposed to having a day or two off. If they win this game it would be HUGE.

I'm going with my gut and saying the Warriors will pull it out by around 2. The Bulls got a good team, but their mostly guards. Duhon, Gordon, and Hinrich are all under 6'3" and NONE are as built as Baron. Look for his post game to do a lot of scoring. Also, JRich is gonna light the net on fire this game. Another game over 20 points, easy (no one on the other team can defend him). Another frustrating game for Dunleavy, but he'll show flashes of improvement. He'll score about 10, like he did last time... but not too much more than that. Murphy and Chandler are gonna battle between big men, but I'm guessing Murph's pulling it out. The best kept secret in the NBA is putting up star numbers; averaging a double double.

Nevertheless, the Bulls are a young squad who like to run and gun with us. I see Ben Gordon hitting from downtown at least twice (maybe three times) this game. Hinrich will quietly put up big numbers, also. It'll be close the whole game and, ultimately, come down to who can score and defend the best in the 4th... and, against the Bulls, I like our chances. Warriors by 3.

Close game, I expect a low scoring outing (Warriors playing back to back, Bulls relying on defense), and to be decided by no more than 3-4 points. Hopefully with the Warriors pulling it out.

32, you should keep writing. you started with around 2, then ended with 3. after a couple more pages, you'll catch up to me and say warriors win by 5!

The Bulls have a pretty good team like the Bucks. Sort of a "sleeper" team for lack of a better explanation, but can strike with somebody totally unexpected. I say the Warriors win, but it'll be a close game again. For the Bulls, I think the "frustration" factor will be provided by Andres Nocioni. Some guy who rarely gets noticed, but just eats away at the opposition.

Hahaha, I'm thinking the Warriors pull it out at around 2... the reason I'm saying 3 is because I think it'll be a 1-point game in the 4th, with Golden State ending off a clutch jumper by Fisher or Baron... followed by Chicago missing a buzzer beater from downtown. But, hey, if we stole their inbound pass... 5 is totally possible! :-o

There is no one on the Bulls who can come close to guarding J-Rich. I bet he lights them up tonight and Baron plays limited minutes just feeding him the ball. The only reason why this game will be fairly close is because Tyson Chandler is a monster on the offensive boards. Songaila, although pretty much worthless in other respects, is also a decent rebounder.

But I would be shocked to see J-Rich under 30 points tonight. Warriors win 108-103.

Back to backs are tuff. The Bulls are going to want it tonight after loosing in OT to the Spurs (I said this in the Bucks thred too.) But the Ws are much deeper and have the adv. at pretty much all positions.
