I've been a Warriors fan since they traded Chris Webber. Can you imagine how that's like....

2 part reply...Pietrus plays, it is close, but Spurs probably sneak it out unless JRich is the JRich of last season, BD and Pietrus both play, Ws win by 7...what a daily double if they take the spurs on the heels of the jazz, but the Spurs will definitely not come in sleeping after tonight...

Spurs come out of the gate strong and never look back. Look for a warrior to get injured. Look for Monta to go down to earth with his older facsimile zooming by him. The spurs will give us a thorough shakeup.

Sorry, but that's just how I see it going down. For some reason I think J-rich and Biedrins will have good games against the soft D of Fabric Oberto

They've always come to town and tear up the dubs, I believe the last time it was like 114-89. I still have my hopes up, I mean cmon we just beat the "#1 team!"

The Jazz also had our number... and we crushed them. Which means that, after a great win, comes a so-so game. Spurs by 6.

The Spurs are clearly a defensive minded team. These Warriors love offense, and what better time to see if this offense is ready for this type of defense. I don't like the Warriors chances, but the Warriors play well when at home. So the game may be a bit close.

Spurs are the real #1 team and they play well against the team.

If the Warriors give the same effort on D like the last game...
If Biedrins can get his numbers against Duncan...
I J-Rich hits more than 40% of his shots...
If Monte's #s can match Parkers...
If Spurs come out a bit flat like the Jazz did...

Warriors win by 5!
11 years of no playoffs and counting...

I'm going to be ridiculously optimistic and guess that Andris outplays Duncan, Monta outplays Parker and that the Dubs win by 7.

I am bvery nervous about tonight's game. It looks like Baron will not play tonight. For the Spurs, Manu Ginobili will be out which is good news for the Warriors.

The Spurs have NOT lost on the road yet this season. They seem to impose their will on any team they play. I hope the Warriors play the 3-2 zone against them and keep them off the boards and force them to shoot from the outside.

While Parker has improved his shooting over the past two seasons, I still do not look at him or Bruce Bowen as deadly three-point shooters. It is imperative to limit Parker's penetration in the lane. The Warriors have had trouble with guards like that this season.

I think the Warriors will play a spirited game, but ultimately fall short.
