Brace yourselves, Warrior fans. Personally, I think we're going to get mopped.

Warriors on a back-to-back. Klay played the most minuted (34). An encouraging stat is that Bogut only played 17, but Clippers just got beat by a team that we annihilated, so I expect that they're going to be a lot of incentives to beat us. If i was a betting man, I'd take Clippers -6.5, but that's just me. I'm prepared for the worst.

Should be a real good game. Could well be the best two teams in the division by season's end if not all season. Rebounding and defense very important.

I personally think warriors will lose this one. Sort of the same situation Lakers came in. Plus Clips can't be 0-2 to start their year….. can they? [-o<

our starting five is better at every position bar half (position). with the defense and passing we showed yesterday, we win. last year's encore.

There ya go. I guess martin and I are the only optimists.

I think Rivers is a bad fit for this team. Managing a locker room with three HoFers that desperately want to stack some rings before their careers are over, and already play excellent D, is far easier than "Lob City". I think the Lakers and Clips should swap HCs.

There is not a slight indication why we should not be.
I expect this team to achieve great things, the starting five just gives me shivers when I think of 'slash,smash,splash' possibilities they can unleash on any other team offensively, and I believe we are much better defensive squad than clippers.
So, ripping clippers' heart out in the center of the court and bazemoring around it is one of the least of great things I expect.
Sky is the limit, not the sea.

The matchup for me is whoever is on Reddick. That guy killed us last season. We might get a look at why bringing in an elite perimeter defender like Iggy was so important.

The quote that bugged me the most from Jamal Crawford last season:
''That's a young team that's improving, for sure, but we have our sights set on trying to play in June,'' said Los Angeles guard Jamal Crawford. ''I'm not saying they don't. But we're looking at bigger goals than celebrating everything.''

Back to back on the road is extremely difficult, See Lakers, Heat...

Now with that in mind, I fully expect a grind it out game in which the Warriors take. We looked extremely focus and if we can maintain that intensity and ball sharing mindset I think this game is our. Wish we had Ezeli because another banger would be ideal for tonight's game since both Blake and Jordan are horrific free throw shooters.

What? Martin is an optimist? No way. I must've woken up in some upside down world.

Both teams will have plenty of motivation for tonights game. Clips won't want to be 0-2 and the Warriors would love nothing more than ensuring that their conference rival starts 0-2.

Good point. Keeping Bogut out of foul trouble is going to be very important.

Iguodala looking good. He has the most favorable matchup, and he's making Dud-ley pay.
