we should be OK if Kaman doesn't take full advantage of the lack of big men defending.

Kaman and Griffin are going to eat us up. Biedrins looked a lot more like his former self last night, and I love Lee in there, but defensively it's not pretty. Hopefully Amundson and Udoh can provide some defensive depth when they get back. That being said, I am not really expecting anything from Udoh this year. Krome, did I mention you are the man yet???

yeah krome... great job!!!

baron scares me more in this game... his height and strength and the season being so young means he may come out early with a chip onthe shoulder and look to get curry into early foul trouble.

i just hope it's the "ive got my money and i dont care for the game" baron that shows up.

I'm mostly worried about fouls. Biedrins fouled out really fast last night. And it doesn't look good when we play Radmanovic at center (as it should be, because he's a SF, but who cares, right?). Generally, our issue on defense were fouls. We started bad on defensive side of the ball, but later on, their guys were covered, if someone got blocked, the other Warrior was there to jump in. It's just that every time even when we played good on defense, we got called for foul. And it doesn't matter if we had 4 fouls in that quarter, every foul seems to get the opposition team on the foul line. Just take away those FTs from the Rockets last night, and you'll see that their offense was not as good as Warriors' when it comes to scoring from the field.

He didn't play center did he? For those siz minutes he came and Beans went out, D. Lee played C and Vlad played PF.

I do agree he played out of position, but he should be able to take a advantage on offense. Again I have never seen him play outside of GSW, but he just seems.... i don't know the word... it's like he isn't trying hard, like he doesn't care. I am sure he is more then capable, but his heart doesn't seem in it...

It will be nice to see BD back.

Isn't it weird how we all had a fit that we didn't resign him and let him slip away to LA and he hasn't had a decent season since? I think it has to do with his lack of drive and passion, off court distractions, and a coach and team he didn't really respect.

Some might "minus" me for saying this but, I really do think that BD getting away could prove to be a blessing in disguise. If we would have given him a good contract to keep him and he played the way he has the last couple of years, we would be singing a different tune. I still like the guy, and he is still fun to watch when he tries.

Maybe I am just looking at the glass as half full..

(I hope Curry schools him, so we can all get over that season we let BD go... or at least so I can get over it LOL).

If I remember correctly both Biedrins and Lee were out during those 6 minutes that Radmanovic played. Maybe even the whole starting 5 were on the bench. Not sure, though. Never mind, anyway.

If it doesn't work out for him as a Clipper, Baron Davis could always play for the Giants ! ;)

Griffin looked very very good the other day. Hopefully Lee/Andris can handle them. Kaman is actually less trouble I think. Griffin has unlimited energy, restrict that and I think warriors can come close/win

Too much strength at almost every position. I won't put how much, but I think this is a bad matchup unless we can force alot of turnovers.

I think we will get a lot of rebounds and Monta will go off baby!!! I think with the defense too it will take our players a bit of time to get into the swing of things with Smart but the D will be better eventually!!! This is going to be one heck of a great game!!!
