It is never a certainty what will happen with the Warriors. They are up and down right now.

Chances are it will be a close game.

I'll say The Warriors by 15 because Yao is out

double team tmac, dare the other rox to shoot, secure defensive rebounds, lead by 15 at the half,
rest the starters in 4th quarter.

Wow, I'm finally in agreeance with you. But maybe Fisher over Dun depending on how both are doing.

So it's going to be a close game and we win by 15????

We've won a difficult game in Dallas, this should be an easier one. If we can (somewhat) contain T-Mac, the game's ours to lose.

Warriors +5.

Warriors SHOULD win by 15 but the way they have gone this season, it will probably be a close game

why is T mac in the game?

rockets would be better suited just throwing bowen in there if Mcgrady can barely run.

31-22 w's after 2 baron 3's.

fishers gotta stop taking contested 20 footers with 15 left on the clock.

Other than that, solid work so far

Two observations: Ike Diogu will lead the NBA in shooting percentage next year. The guy almost always converts the automatic ones and hardly ever selects a difficult shot over an easier one. Second, did anyone notice the two blonde hoochies sitting at courtside near the Warriors' bench? What was that all about?

Great win! murphy and Diogu have to rebound more! Murphy is not handling the boards like he used to. Diogu scores alright but he needs to be a monster rebounder and get the shot blocking going! Why did Foyle not play? He injured?

TMac a monster again but our backcourt gets it done!

dunleavy highlight of the night:

TMac comes back from a sprained ankle and immediately takes little dung off the dribble for a layup. I say put little dung on the guy checking into the game, maybe he can stop him.
