This being a home game, I would have to think that this is a must win for the Warriors. If they continue to fail, then there is no telling how far this streak may go. I believe the Celtic/Warrior games in Oakland always seem to be quite entertaining, and so easily could this one be too. It should be a good game, and hopefully the Warriors seek to take revenge after losing to them in Boston just nine days ago.

The matchups sound very tight and good(Baron, JRich, Troy, Ike vs. Ricky, Pierce, LaFrentz, Blount). Hopefully each player can show up and rally the Warriors to a victory. The perimeter defense must be at it's top for this game, because there seems to be many players on the Celtics who could light up. And with Ike starting, hopefully the Warriors will be prepared when he becomes double teamed in the post, which I think could be very likely. Just clean up the boards and don't let the Celtic shooters get extra shots, because that could be lethal.

All in all, this should be a good game. I wish I were courtside to see this one.

We need to win this one. This slump needs to end sooner than later. I still don't like the matchups against the Celtics (that is, except for the pg), but being at home, we're fovered to win this game, IF any kind of defense shows up.

Warriors +10.

I wonder what's up with Paul Pierce ignoring Doc Rivers' call for a timeout.

Wow close call, but I knew the Ws would pull it off.

I wasn't too sure about Ike starting immediately over Foyle but I was excited. Seems like Foyle is a better player off the bench, he was a solid back up getting about equal minutes with Dampier. Foyle should continue to play off the bench, I think he's a better player that way.

Mike, good game but man he has really got to do something about his shooting.

Ike, is a beast but really needs to work on his defense in all aspects. Definitely NOT ready to start, he's not able to guard the NBA's giants. He's a rook, but this will give him a great learning experience on guarding the NBA's giants.

Baron, great game.

Troy, okay game, could be a lot better in help defense. Great first half, but not so great 2nd half.

Derek Fisher, okay game but got the game winner. He's the type of player that can create shots for himself without any plays for him. But I think he's the 2nd best off the screen shooter and Monty should create plays for him. He's the type of player during warmups that won't miss any shots. That's why he comes out gunning from the get, gotta love his confidence.

J-Rich, WOW. Very impressive, great step back and RISE shooting. Defense could be a lot better one on one, he gave Pierce way too many easy shots. Pierce looked like he was playing against high school kids the way he was so wide open and shot so smoothly. J-Rich is a great help defender though, just have to work on his one on one D.
