Just look at the difference in records. It's disgusting.

The Warriors are better than the Magic 5 or 6 days of the week. And, yet, because Orlando's in the Eastern Conference, they get to be 21-14. How miserably unfair.

Warriors by 5.

With the Warriors playing at home, I expect them to win. However, I am a bit concerned about Baron's wrist injury. I hope he the two days off will help it heal a bit.

Dwight Howard is obviously a monster and will need to be reckoned with. That being said Biedrins and a host of other Warriors will need to crash the boards tonight or Howard could be in for a 25-rebound night.

I expect Ellis to play well tonight in his third game back. I think Barnes will bounce back as well after a rough game in Phoenix on Sunday.

It will be a close game, but I think the Warriors will pull it out late.

I remember the East being like what it is in the Jordan days. You'd have 6 teams in teh East that were teams you had no clue who was on them and then, you'd have the Bulls and the Knicks or the Bulls and the Magic, etc... But ya, the most glaring example of 32s statement is the Whizz... Warriors East...

It doesn't matter to the Ws. If the East was tough, the Ws would have a worse record than they do.

Tonight, Ws by a few, maybe 5 or so.

Speaking of tough. How about Jason Kidd's wife sitting behind their bench screaming at him for a whole game because she found other womens' phone numbers on his cell phone. Somebody must have this on YouTube or ?

I predict only 4 Ellis turnovers tonight, so be glad

They should put Diogu in, he could totally take on dwight howard

also, 3 game homestead starts tonight, which makes me a little more optimistic on gaining ground for playoff spots

Wow that was depressing... Were slowly slipping further and further into the abbyss. Looks like this team needs a little spark... This game was really sloppy. Thats all i have to say I could go on a rant right now but im too tired.

What a horrible second half. How disappointing could it get in that 10 point 3rd quarter performance? Yikes. Btw, the Heat come to town Friday. Hopefully the cold chill coming to the bay can keep the Heat cool because word is that it'll be around 30-40 degrees. Let it snow, let it snow. Anyway, bright side was that the Warriors got Azubuike involved. He was impressive. Foyle hustled, he played well on defense.

I can honestly say I've never seen Adonal Foyle make a better play than that scoop pass he threw during a horizontal dive to the floor. No block he's ever gotten compares to that.

But, aside from that minor glory hiccup, the game made my eyes bleed. A flurry of turnovers in the first half and 20% shooting in the second half. Terrible. Just terrible.

lets just focus on staying close to .500 until the last few weeks, i think thats the best we can hope for. this is the 2nd youngest team in the league. when j-rich gets back healthy and we trade murphys worthless ass then we'll be in good shape. last year murph lit it up from 3 and everything. now he is non existent. not nellie's style i guess. trade his ass for some leather balls and a shooting coach for mike dunleavy
