This game is a toss-up.

Steve Nash may not play, Baron Davis may not play, Murphy may not play, Diogu WONT play, Amare is still an X-factor due to his surgery recovery, Richardson is still an X-factor due to his surgery recovery, Dunleavy's ALWAYS unpredictable, Diaw's played like sh*t so far, Biedrins MIGHT hit foul trouble (which would leave us without a big man), and Nelly doesn't seem to know Wagner and Foyle are on the roster.

Monta Ellis having a great game is the only thing for sure. For that reason (along with the current records), I take Golden State by less than 5 in a nail-biter than changes leads all night long.

W's by 7. I'm not all that impressed with the way the Suns have been playing.

Amare did look damn well threatning in that game against th Sixers. Though it will take a stretch of games to prove to me he's back.

W's by 5.

Are the Warriors playing back to back after the Suns? Because if they are they'll be real tired running all game against the Suns and then running against whoever. I'd check for myself but friends are still over drinking up all the booz after the boxing match.

No, the Warriors don't play again after Monday until Wednesday, at home against Denver. They'll get to rest Tuesday, thankfully.

The Suns are playing better the last few games but, if Nash doesn't play, we should win this one. If he does, it's a toss up.

W's by 6.

great analysis. I am a lucky dog...my son and I are going to the game tomorrow. I hope Nash and BD play, but it will be a track meet regardless. Not sure anyone can guard Amare - Andris could, but will foul out in the process...my heart says Ws by 1, my head says Suns by 5, but it really depends who suits up. Nash plays, no BD, Suns in a romp, and vice versa BD yes, nash no.

I heard Murphy will be back, but what about Ike? anyone know how long we won't have him?
I think Amare is trying to prove he is back and so if he has a big game, Warriors lose. But if we can throw the collective fouls of Ike, Andres and Troy at him, that may help. maybe Foyle should play?
Barbosa and Monte cancel each other out
Baron and Nash cancel eachother out
But who cancels out Marion?
Who cancels out JRich?

This game will be close, the team with more energy and heart will win, not too mention the first to 110 wins! But if the Dubs win, I'd say they will have the confidence to carry them to the playoffs despite how early in the season it is.

Foyle may lack a lot in his game, but he plays decent to good defense, can body up on Amare and throw his six fouls in the mix.

I hope Reggie Miller and Charles Barkley watch the Suns get defeated by "The Summer League Team" tomorrow.

They'll say it's a fluke. That won't change this season. All our wins will be a fluke for a while...

Don't reckon Baron and Nash will play. Diogu won't play and likely Murphy won't either, though if he does, it would be a relief on the boards at least.

Amare is the key because he has been doing well the last week and maybe having Foyle play some time if things are looking bad inside is a good thing, SERIOUSLY. He can block shots, is used to guarding guys like Amare from previous years and at least has 6 fouls to give!

I want the Warriors to win and they are better this season but the Suns have had their number recently!

Suns by 5 but impossible to call without knowing exactly who is playing
