For those of us still believing in the pipe dream of a playoff berth this is a huge game. 2.5 games behind the 8th spot, which just happens to be Portland.

Portland lost last night, so we are only 2 games behind them and Memphis.

This is a huge game, and a game they should win.

We have to win this one! I'm gonna stay awake tonight once again, if we can win this one, we are making a statement about Warriors being in the PO this season.

I'm sure you all know, but yes Aldridge is not playing tonight.

I saw that he got hurt early last night and was kind of hoping he would take this game off.

To me, this is one of the biggest matchup problems for us and now it's a lot better.

Camby will still give us problems but they will not occur on the offensive side.

I like our chances a lot more now, the Warriors always seem to play better on national TV, I'm glad I finally get to watch for once.

Sad to see that we're only up 7 after out rebounding them 15 to 5 and out shooting them 58% to 38%

It's getting better with Nate hitting threes. Warriors are 5 of 5 from 3 point land.

Can't believe it though that we don't have a single player in All-Star. Monta should have been there probably, Klay for sure, and Brandon and Klay at least should compete in 3-point competition.

The NBA All-Star game is one of the biggest jokes in the sports world. It's a complete popularity contest and only players from big market teams ever make it.

Awful play during these last minutes. No rebounds, missed shots...

As usual, too many second chances. Loving the ESPN feed, don't have to listen to Fitz.

Now I'm getting pissed. How many times are we going to finish 4 on 1 fastbreak with a 3 point shot? That's why we can't separate ourselves from Blazers tonight.

Sometimes Nate's decision making confuses me. I have to say, if that would have gone in it would be looked like a great decision but you are going from a 35% shot with a 3 to an 70 to 80% shot with a layup.
