It's a must-win situation, so Golden State will come up short.

For some reason, I think the Warriors will win this game. One of those infuriating wins when you're like 'why couldn't they have played like that the last few when it mattered'. I don't really agree that this is a 'must win' game. I think we're pretty far past that point right now. I f the warriors actually believe that this game is 'must -win' which they probably don't, then I agree, they will surely lose.

If they have any shred of hope for a playoff spot (meaning, Sac, Utah, and NO losing every single one of their games and Golden State winning all 10 of their final ones), than they'd see it as a must-win. But, you're probably right, the players are way past that.

God, it's the second quarter and we're getting our asses handed to us...

How do you outrebound a team by 10 boards and STILL trail a game by double-digits...? Try shooting 23% from the field as a team.

JRich is 1/10.
Dunleavy is 1/6.
Zarko is 0/2.
Air France is 0/2.
Monta is 0/3.
Bynum is 0/1.

That's 2 for 24 from those players alone. Wow.

Losing by 20 points. I'm officially crowning this first half as the worst the Warriors have played all season.

Wow. At the half, Golden State has committed more than double the turn-overs of Memphis, they shot 22.5% from the field, and scored only 9 points in the second quarter (with Troy Murphy being the only person to sink a field goal... he got two). On top of that, we shot 57% from the stripe, 25% for three, and have (both) less steals and blocks than the Grizzleys.

So far, Derek Fisher leads Golden State with 6 points. JR & Mike are tied with 2 assists a piece. And our best player on the floor (believe it or not, it's Foyle with 4 points, on 2/3 shooting, and 8 boards) already has 3 fouls slapped on him. This might be the very worst I've seen Golden State play all year. Hell, possibly in two years.
