With Gordon back this is a different team, Lopez is not the type of Center that scares, me, but their front court is big and we always have issues with big front court.

Definitely not a gimmie game. Really need to win this game.

People are betting the Hornets this game. They are -5.5 favorites.

Did not see anywhere Curry's status for the game. I am guessing it is a game time decision. But the Hornets are hot right now winning five out of their last six games, including a win against the Spurs. Don't follow betting much but I would be inclined to take the hornets on that spread, not doing it as a fan more as a realist. Simply because of home court advantage, hornets winning streak, and Curry's injury issue.

So to get this straight a -5 hornets, means warriors win by 5 ?

Projections say we lose this game sixty percent of the time, but cover the spread 55 percent of the time.

However, +220 moneyline is really good value.

Barnes needs to look for his shot more, some games he just disappears. Same scouting report of him while he was at UNC, certain games he would just disappear.

So getting Klay off screens works. So the less Klay has the ball the better, feed him off screen. Not saying he doesn't need to improve his ball handling and driving skills.

Ezeli with 6 points in the first quarter. lol, who would have predicted that.

And yeah, Barnes really needs to shoot more, it's like he feels it would be wrong to create a shot for himself. He is just shooting open ones.

Klay is 4-4 right now, but I can't stand his shot selection. 1 transition 3 with no rebounders, and a fallaway on the sideline.
From "we believe", to "we belong", to "we gon beatcho ass!"

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. 8th. Good things he was hitting them.

And wow, Jefferson with a nasty dunk! Still has some left in the tank.

The fall away was a designed play because it made him wide open. And the other one it was a sick move to create and get open. The transition three is his highest percentage shot, one was designed, one was wide open. Can't think of the fourth or fifth one right now though.

Yeah, how great it would be if Jefferson stopped being shitty and was the old Jefferson.
