The Pistons will look to rebound from their huge loss against the Kings. That was a sluggish performance they put up.

Nazr Mohammed is an excellent offensive rebounder. They cannot let him grab em.

They cannot let Rasheed going. If he does, the Warriors will be in trouble.

Tayshaun will be one to handle. Both Wallace and Prince had horrible shooting nights, and they are huge weapons on offense.

Hamilton and Billups always look for shots. Their backcourt will always be the most dangerous weapons of all. Baron and Jrich or whoever defends Hamilton, will have their hands full. Monta should be the one guarding him if he gets the start. He has the speed and agility to keep up with Rip.

I like the Warriors in this one. Warriors by 3.

Be nice if the boys won this one.

Still think the Pistons are a handful and will look to go off in this game.

Baron is on fire - if Ike is back Warriors by 4, if not Pistons by six

We have to stop the win/lose routine with this game. W's by 4.

btw, these Pistons do not scare me. They're a different team than the contender they were under Larry Brown. Good enough for the playoffs in the east, but that's all. There are 3 or 4 teams better than them in the east.

They have the better starting five, except at the pg and sg pots. we may have more depth but they certainly have smarter players and more experience. plus, while warriors are probably pleased to be 3-3, I know detroit is sitting angry at 2-3. hate to say it - but detroit might win this one.

I say... Wallace get two technicals by the second quarter, and Roberson explodes for 20+ points.

Warriors by 5, (Only if we hit our free throws) which btw is looking better and better everytime they get on the court.

I like the fact that the Pistons will be playing the second of back-to-back games tomorrow night against the Warriors. With the Pistons playing in LA against the Lakers tonight, perhaps the Warriors will be well rested and ready to explode against a Pistons team that might have a let down of sorts after tonight's game.

The Warriors have to keep the Pistons off the offensive glass. Additionally, the Pistons have shown in the first week and a half that their defense is not as strong down the middle without Ben Wallace. Whereas the Pistons used to funnel everything down the middle defensively, teams are eating them up as there is no one to block shots and take the charge in the Piston frontcourt.

This will be a good game and it would be great to get another win in front of the home crowd. Too tight to call right now. Go Warriors!

Detoit isn't the same team without Big Ben. They wanna transition from lock-down defense to run and gun. The Warriors, right now, are better are that.

I agree. This game is a tough one to call. Ike will be the X factor. With that said, Pistons by 4 in OT. 125 to 121...

Yeah the Pistons are comming off a game against the Lakers tonight. Hopefully The Lakers will wear them out and the Ws have a days rest, long enough for JRich and Ike to rehab.

The fact that the Pistons play tonight in LA will be our saving grace. No rest for them will halp our rested guys out a lot. If Ike and JRich play we should be cool.

Unless they lose against LA... The Pistons would be a lot more dangerous coming from two straight losses.
