They have been in every game on the trip, and Miami is hurting, so it winnable. Ws by 5

Miami is pretty bad at home without Shaq. I like the Warriors again. Time to show Florida that the bay can ball too!

Warriors win thanks to help from the bench.

Who knows what will happen!

Apparently Nelson has said that JRich will not play in the Heat game but you never know.

As long as the team rebounds well, they should win.

I predict Wade to score 45.

Winnable, sure... but I don't like back to back games. Much less with a banged up team. Should be close, tho.

Heat by 3.

Since JRich didn't play much last night, I wouldn't be surprised to see him go tonight, especially since Pietrus is likely out with his broken nose. With two "easy" games at home after this, this would be a huge win that could lead into a 5-game winning streak

O RLY?

anyway i believe that the warriors can win this one, but i sense wade and their big men will give them a run for their money. I bet the Miami heat have some loser player that opens up big against the Warriors, that's what always happens it seems.

Not looking good at the moment. Biedrins is in foul trouble and the rest of the team seems to be content jacking up 3's. Hopefully we come out in the second half a bit more aggressive. Only bright spot at the moment is J Rich.

.345 from the field, .222 from 3pt and .250 from the free throw line so far?? This is just sh*t.....can't believe we're only 10 points back.

WOWWWW...

This is the first Warrior game all season that I stopped watching because it was hurting my eyes. Everybody was cold. Everybody.

Horrid.

Not a good game but the Heat didn't win by much either.

Time to go home and look forward to the next game

Ehh... everyone was cold, looked like they were tired which can be expected on the second game of a back to back. Only dissapointing thing is we let kapono go off for 27... Seems like that kind of thing happens every game. We let one of the other teams role players go off on us.

I think they hit a wall today...long trip, back to back, day before xmas 3500 miles from home...I don't think this is terribly indicative of anything...Barnes and Dunleavy had pretty good games, but I wouldn't even call JRich good at 6/19, but at least he got 18 points in 19 minutes. Team ran out of ethanol...they'll regroup against Philly - hopefully Monta will be o.k. This was a pretty good road trip, in that they were in 5 of the 6 games. should have been 3-3, but 2-4 is definitely an improvement for a te am that had only one road win prior to the trip.

The Warriors played like a "back-to-back, okay lets get this game over with so we can go home and celebrate Christmas with my family" type team. The interior defense was just terrible. They left guys like Kapono and Mourning hardly work for their shots. It was hard to listen to this game. Just time for the Warriors to get some rest, spend time with their familes, and enjoy the rest of the weekend off. The somewhat suprising streaking Philly 76ers are coming to town. The Warriors did what they had to but they just ran out of gas in the 2nd.

Any update on Monta?
