Baron Davis will have a great game... but so will Chris Paul.

I'm guessing the Warriors will break this lose-win-lose-win streak.

Golden State by 5 in New Orleans... and then by 10 back in the Bay. :wink:

Best logical choice is to say New Orleans in a very close game but I really think the Warriors can continue off this big win in Dallas.

Monta should have another solid game. I like Baron having a great return to his old team too. Warriors by 4.

talent-wise, the Ws are at least even with hornets, and it could be a fun time watching Paul and BD...Dun stays on the bench, Ws by 1

You know who's one player the Warriors want to look out for other than Paul being the headline is West. David has been playing real well early on.

Key points:

Hornet's backcourt is way better than the Warriors. Expect the W's to get outrebounded and outscored in the paint (especially if Dun's at the 4). The need here is to limit them. Also to try and balance w/ rebounding would be great.

The Warriors need to shut down Peja. If he gets rolling, then watch out. Also, with no one really great to guard J-Rich, watch for Baron and J-Rich to have great games.

Hmmm... Warriors by 4.

peja is the one that I reckon could go off. Pietrus should be the one defending him and he should be in his face as often as he can

I agree with the vibe. I say Dubs win by over 8 pizoints.

BD and J-Rich will rule again.

I say we split games, we'll lost there and win in the bay... The Hornets are playing really good bball, but having Dun in the bench evens the outcome. Anyway, close game.

Hornets by 4.

I think Warriors have a great chance to go in NO and steal a win. I just hope that Nelson plays Dunleavey for like 5 minutes and if he looks like what he usually looks like, sit him for the rest of the game.

Its great to see Beidrins and Monta playing big minutes. And Petrius at the corner... DEADLY

Peja is crap. A shooter dies when his percentages fall... which is exactly what happened to him in Sacramento. His days as "one of the elite shooters in the league" are over.
