THe team could win this one but things have to be clicking offensively and Dwight can't have a huge game like I reckon he will. Guys like Arroyo shouldn't go off either but likely will.

I always have a lot of confidence in the warriors when going against tough opponents, sometimes they can do very well.

Not to be nit-picky, krome, but I believe Barnes starts at PF and Pietrus is at SF. :wink:

If Chris Paul could shove it down Dwight Howard's throat, I wonder what Jason Richardson or Mickael Pietrus are fixing to do...

Warriors carry over the momentum and beat the Magic by 5 or less.

Hey #32--in your signature, why is Patrick O'Bryant part of the future of the Warriors,while Biedrins is not?

It will be great to see how Biedrins plays against Howard - also Ike may need to bang with the big sucker too. I think Howard is going to be the best big man in the league in a couple years.
JRich will have the breakoput game we've been waiting for, Baron will go for 20 and 10 and get some bench time as Monta plays well against Orlando's weak perimeter defense.
Warriors by 5!

JRich could really be the difference and if he has a good game, I don't think the Magic have anyone to match him

The Magic are a tough team. They're one of the best in that horrible conference we know as the East. The way the Warriors have been playing, it's hard to predict. My only hope is that they don't let Howard go off on them.

Warriors win... in a sloppy fashion.

First of all, because I'm not sure we'll be able to resign Biedrins (ALL the Bay Area fans are creaming over Monta, so I'll bet the office will cave and give HIM the contract that Andris deserves).

Secondly, because I liked picking him up in the draft. I think he's a quick learner, a legit 7-footer who can block shots, plus his offensive game is already pretty decent.

I know many, MANY fans in the Bay don't think anything of him yet (even though most of them have never seen him play :roll:), but don't take my word for it: Don Nelson's been quoted saying Golden State's future rides on Patrick O'Bryant.

Give the kid 2 seasons. By his 3rd, I'm betting he'll be a beast. Not a superstar, but at least as good as Biedrins.

I'll make that bet, but how do I collect? I'm still waiting for my $100 from JSW :mrgreen:

If we're still talking on this forum in 3 years, I seriously doubt we'll remember this bet.
