I predict:

Baron muscling up Curry.
Getting outrebounded like crazy.
And Randolph chilling with the bench.

Ok. This is the deal.
If we pass to Morrow we win.

If we pass to Mags or Sjax we lsoe.

Back to .500??? We should be 3-1 with this kind of schedule...



Anyways, LAC is certainly beatable, particularly with all their injuries. No excuses this time.

i think people are really underrating The Rockets. sure, they don't have a bunch of names anymore, but they have exactly what we lack the most. a concept of TEAM. so 2-2 makes more sense to me than a potential 3-1.

That's not underrating them. Without Yao and T-Mac, they have one of the least talented rosters of the league. That's a fact. Of course they play within a team concept and that allows them to win games they shouldn't, but I think that says more (in a bad way) about other teams than about them.

Andris Biedrins' injury leaves Warriors short at center
By Marcus Thompson II
Oakland Tribune

The Warriors may be down two centers as Andris Biedrins, the starter, is questionable for today's game against the Los Angeles Clippers because of an ailing back.
"It's a little sore," Biedrins said Thursday. "Hopefully I will play, but we'll see (today)."
Biedrins' backup, Ronny Turiaf, missed Wednesday's game with a sprained left knee. He did not practice Thursday and is doubtful for today's game. So coach Don Nelson will turn to veteran Mikki Moore as the starting center if Biedrins or Turiaf can't play. The last time Moore started was last season with the Sacramento Kings, on Jan."‰6 at Chicago.
Anthony Randolph, whom Nelson said will serve as a backup center, won't start because the Clippers feature 7-foot, 265-pound Chris Kaman. Nelson has said he wants Randolph to play only against reserves.

Biedrins is a big puzzy, too bad he wasnt moved in the offseason. So many times last year he seemed to come up with these little injuries that kept him out late in games or he would miss a game when he looked fine the night before. If he plays like he is capable of, he was a bargain for the deal he signed, but I dont think he will ever realize his potential.

A game that seemed very winnable is now going to be a huge mountain to climb without both Turiaf and Andris. Mikki Moore is going to get beat up and with only AR backing him up, we are going to see lots of Jax and Maggs @ the PF spot.

Do I want to watch this game?

Man even with AB playing we would get killed on the boards. Without him I dont see how we can pull through 48 minutes. I see alot of foul trouble in this game for the Ws.
