W's were down 11 with 4 minutes remaining and they come back.

Baron 3pt play --> Baron 3 FT's --> Harrington 3.

Then Harrington scores a lil more. Baron gets rebound off a missed Nets 3 (that was close). like 6 seconds to go, and Baron dishes to Monta who swishes the game winner.

Man - I really thought it was done when they were down 11 with 4 minutes - they had climbed all the way back twice, up 87-84, then outscored 20-6. Hilarious graphic, this historical win probability. I kid you not, at 104-93 it said 97% likelihood of Jersey winning. Maybe not the best win of the year, but would have been an utterly demoralizing loss and obviosuly the most esciting win of the year...Harrington is the real deal. Great clutch by Monta and I really liked how Baron involved everyone, Barnes also strong. Pietrus was godawful - ya know, he is just not a smart player. Biedrins also strong and I like how he and Jasikevicius play off each other. Great great win.

You wanna talk about comebacks? Let's talk Warriors my brothers. From missed layups to horrific three point shooting, it seemed as if people were going to start believing and b*tching over how this trade has not panned out the way they thought. To rally a comeback as a team and to end with a clutch shot with a young gun, you just had to believe in these Warriors. They showed why they're called the Warriors tonight.

Now that's basketball baby!

I saw that probability and I was just numbed being so pissed, at that point. On that last jack by Baron on a 3 pointer, I heard some boos in the crowd, but he atoned for it hitting his 3 foul shots. And whenever he was still jackin’ it up, I was like NOOOOO! Another time. Just take it to the hole!

But what a performance by Big Al, Monta, and Dre--and Matt! But finally, Monta turned the lights out like the freakin’ bomb!

Well you know, when I was looking at the win probability for the Warriors at 97% of a chance to win for the Nets and only a mere 3% for the Dubs, I knew right then and there, they were going to get on a run. If you've noticed, everytime that win probability gets brought up, the game shifts to the other team that has a low, less likely chance.

I don’t know about getting a win, though, and with such huge lopsidedness. This was pretty much, signed, sealed, and delivered.
For me, I think taking off my sig at that exact time had something to do with it. :wink:

Monta! Clutch, game winning 3!

Saw the highlights. Shouldn't have come down to us coming back to win, but we win an exciting one. keep it up! I'd say 5 straight wins and the warriors are back.
