I'd think so. Ray Allen is out with that ankle injury so it will hurt them severly unless Lewis and Ridnour have break out games with help from others.

The Sonics, WHILE NOT AS BAD AS EVERYBODY THINKS ( :mrgreen: ), are not deep. They have no one to replace Allen in their lineup. Should be a win.

The Sonics blow (sorry TMC). This should be a gimmie, even when Allen's in the lineup.

This is going to be a very tough game in Seattle tonight. Even without Ray Allen, the Warriors are in the second night of a back-to-back and are not the best team on the road.

I actually think the Warriors are going to have their hands full in this one. On paper the Warriors are clearly the better team, but games are not won on paper. Look for Ridnour, Rashard Lewis and Chris Wilcox to pick up their games in the absence of Allen.

As we have seen a few times this season with the Warriors without Baron and now J-Rich, often times players rally together when the team's star is out. Seattle will definitely not be a pushover.

If the Warriors simply think they can go through the motions and win, they will definitely lose. Nellie better have this team ready to go from the first minute on.

If the Warriors can play defense like last night and play as a team offensively, they will win. It is hard to tell which Warriors team we will see tonight. I am cautiously optimistic.

why do you love the sonics so much? they don't have any spaniards to my knowledge (since that's why you love the blazers and grizz)

The Sonics at full strength are a bad team (as everyone rightfully thinks :mrgreen: ) and since Allen is out, it should be an easy win and one the team needs. A danger game though because the team could be taking them lightly.

Yep... the Warriors turned in a good first half, I'm impressed by their offense, and Baron is doing well.

Wow. I was listening to the game in the first half and thought we were playing well. I had to finish up some stuff so i turned it off and I just know looked at the final score on ESPN. Wow how do we lose to a ray allen-less sonics thats pretty pathetic. The even more disappointing part is we were up by 16 at the half! what the hell!

It's easy. No defense and too many outside shots. They got away with it in the first half, but it caught up to them down the stretch.

I'm embarassed, humiliated, frustrated ... and in a total state of HOPE

Dunno what happened. The Warriors just collapsed in the second half after destroying the Sonics in the 1st. They set the tone in the 1st half, but could not finish in the 2nd. Like it is always said, no game is won in the first, second, or third but rather the 4th and most importantly, the last 4 minutes. The starters did their part, but the bench was no where to be seen.

Glad to hear another voice other than Barnett's biased commentating. It was good ol' Nate fillin' in for Jim because he is still recovering from eye surgery.
