It was a good thing the Warriors got the win tonight. But that loss to the Sonics hurt them so iono about this one. I'll say it's a close one and believe the Warriors can get it done. The Rockets almost came back to beat the Lakers so their confidence may be down a bit.

Warriors by 3 off a Tmac miss in the final seconds.

Also have a question, who's this Chuck Hayes guy? What happened to Juwan Howard?

I'm picking the Ws, cause TMAC is out indefinitely and there is a little payback due for the thumping in texas...by 6

I said before the season started that I was sure he was going to start over Juwan. Think of him as a player similar to Reggie Evans... Some defense, good on the boards, not much of an offensive game... good role player, which is exactly what Yao needs alonside him.

As for the game, and as T-Mac won't play, I say W's by 4. Won't be easy but, as Colt said, revenge should be a motivating factor.

I'm also pretty interested in what Luther Head may do now that he doesn't have to play after T-Mac. I expect him to have a good night against us, but hopefully not enough to win the game...

Why is T MAc out?
Well with out him if we double Yao as much as possible, The Rockets dont really have another alternative we cant contain. So we should get this one by 6, Got to keep the momentum going for this road trip. I hope we can get Ike and Jason back for the trip.

I'd like to see a guard like Baron Davis go for the steal when Yao gets the ball, With Tracy McGrady out they should be looking for Yao to score a good majority of points for them, also they need to take advantage in the paint when Yao is out of the game, they are very effective down low, they are just too busy shooting threes to realize it a lot of the time.

Heard he's still getting in shape and isn't healthy yet. That's what I read on a fantasy update when I was looking at the FA's.

I've heard he's already clashing with JVG... can't say I'm surprised.

btw, congrats on your new all star status, Colt. =D>

No T-Mac, no problem.

Well, not quite.

But Warriors by 5. And Biedrins makes one fiersome block on Yao at some point and I get really excited about it.
