Yes to the first... but the second is unlikely. Barnes JUST blew up on the Sixers. I dunno if he'll do the same to Boston. I'm looking for Baron Davis to be the top player in this game against Bassy's non-existent defense.

Yeah. He wanted to show off and prove the Sixers made a huge mistake in not playing him. But I doubt he'll do it again with Boston. He only sparks up like that every now and then.

Yep. He didn't even play for the Celtics. Was sent there as filler and cut right away.

But I can't wait til he plays against the Knicks...

Yeah, especially at the Garden. BTW, lets see.... he's got the Knicks twice, the Kings twice, and the Sixers once more to show off.

Must win, will win. By, say, 15. Or 90. Either one.
Should win their next few games, lookin at the schedule, honestly. @ Sacto, @ New Orleans (with about 50% of their team injured), then @ Memphis, who, last I checked sucked horrifically, then home vs. Seattle. Need to win 4 of these, I think. Tonight, NO, Seattle, & Memphis should be locks.

Of course, these are the Warriors.

Good point and they are al more than winnable, they should be wins. If so, the team will be some 4 games over 50% and looking great!

I hope JRich can get it going. Hes not playing with that smooth confidence he had before the surgery.

Hes not getting passes on the cuts to the basket and seems like hes trying to back it in to much.

Cant wait to see him go for 30 one of these nights.

At the end of the 3rd, this game is looking real sloppy. Jeez guys, home game against the Pierce-less Celts? No good.

didn't see the game, but a nice, convincing win on paper - Dung shot 1-8, but dished 8 dimes so that is cool. Baron, Pietrus and Andris all strong. Only thing...Someone please explain to me Nelson's hard-on for Ike. Dude gets 13 points in 17 minutes with zero turnovers previous game and is rewarded with 4 minutes??? 4 - please don't recycle he doesn't know the offense, plays bad defense, etc...4 minutes? you can't tell sh*t in 4 minutes. Did he get hurt? Otherwise, this is just starting to smell like Nelson being a dick...otherwise, glad they are winning what they should win.

Ok win but still no IKE! Only 4 minutes what the hell? I dont get it the guy is instant offense. If we were losing more games I would really be angry but you cant really argue with the results right now. If murphy gets minutes why cant Ike i just dont get it.

Not a thrashing but a win so well done. Pietrus looking good and Baron showing that he is a serious allstar contender! Biedrins himself is a worthy allstar contender at Center and he performed well today (though no chance of being allstar).

Diogu getting only 4 minutes is strange and it really does look like Nelson does not like him at all

May not be a thrilling one but they got the W regardless. The Warriors are fantastic at home.

Atcually, it's pretty easy to understand. He's in Nellie's doghouse right now... as to why, only Nellie knows. But this will keep happening until Ike figures a way to get out of it.

About the game, it was a good win. The team is back over .500, so I hope they can use it to build some momentum.
