I can only imagine how many times Okafor roofs everyone on the team when they try to slash to the basket. Triple double for Okafor 20/15/10. Ws lose by 7.

I worry a bit about tonight's game. The Bobcats have some decent players in Emeka Okafor, Gerald Wallace, Raymond Felton, Sean May and suprisingly, Matt Carroll as well.

This team has played relatively well of late and showed that last night in beating the Lakers. The fact that they did play the Lakers last night will be an advantage to the Warriors who have been off since Wednesday night.

I think the Warriors will win, but I would like to see them dominate this game from the get go and jump on the Bobcats early. This team can and will hang around tonight if the Warriors let them.

On paper, the Warriors should run away with this one. However, it is easier said than done.

Well, no need to worry anymore.. We jumped out early and kept the lead. I think most importantly... Matt Carrol Struggled which really helped us.

Wasnt too hard to see that one coming... one of the worst teams in the league even if they have been playing better. And it was the second game of a back to back...

Great win though and it looks like we have some momentum. I see at least a 3-3 road trip and probably better. We should beat all six but i cant be that optimistic.

What a fun game, they started red-hot in the beginning, and jesus Al Harrington! I hope he stays this hot for the road trip

Now that's how you disassemble the lower class teams of the NBA. 131... good sh*t. Another 28+ point game for Harrington. He's starting to show consistency on the offensive end. I really hope that New Jersey game was the turning point of the season because the Warriors really need it. Good thing I recorded it to my DVR because I couldn't watch it. 40 points in the first? Emeka Okafor and Gerald Wallace are defensive stoppers. What happened to them?

Harrington was great, and Powell did a good job in junk time.

Yep. What a terrible team Charlotte has. Some good pieces (Okafor, Wallace at times... Felton and Morrison are still a work in progress), but terrible overall. And with a coach as bad as the roster, I may add.

This was the easiest game to predict of the whole season.

I disagree; I see last season's Warriors when I see the Bobcats. They beat a lot of big name teams (including SA and UTA), but they just can't get a good record. They're a couple key pieces away from making the playoffs. If Morrison can become a more consistent scorer and Felton can break out, that might be all they need. A stud in the free agent market might make them look a whole lot better. Say... Vince Carter?

I like Bernie Bickerstaff, though. He got the Cats to ALMOST come back in the 2nd quarter by continually driving, he called a timeout early in the 3rd and told his team to foul Golden State before they could run the break (which was smart, IMO), and he pulled out the big freak after the cheap shot on Mickael. I think Bickerstaff is a good coach who just needs a break.
