Can't say I blame you. This team is just terrible on defense. Two consecutive blow outs, by the Lebron-less Cavs and the Hawks... We allow 70 first half points to the Hawks...

I still have hope. But that's all I have, hope. If you really think about it, there's no way this team can compete for a playoff spot playing like this on the road.

Yeah... but the Celts may get Oden or Durant next year for sucking so bad...

Yeah definately, Cardinal was by far my least favourite departure.

He and boykins were great team oriented players and i was devastated when they left.
NICE WORK MULLY!!!

Just when you thought it could not get worse after Tuesday's nights debacle in Cleveland it does last night against the Hawks.

Where was the defense? No one played any. No one can keep a player in front of himself and no one plays help defense. That is basic stuff.

The rebounding was attrocious. Where has Beidrins been? Yeah, I know he is tired and all that crap, but he has been non-existent of late and the Warriors are not rebounding and give up way too many second chance points.

The telling stat of the night, the Warriors shoot 58% in the first half to the Hawks 53% and yet they trailed by 14. How is that? I can tell you, second chance points, turnovers and quite simply no defensive effort on the Warriors part.

This team is toast this season. No chance on the playoffs. We can't worry about the other teams gunning for the 8th spot if the Warriors themselves can't win a game. I will be shocked if they win one of their next four road games.

The first quarter was good with nice passing, lots of assists and a decent (I use that term loosely) effort on defense. However, the second quarter the passing stopped and defending was even worse in than the first quarter and unfortunately, that trend carried over the rest of the game.

I won't. I'm betting they beat the Pacers... but everything else is a toss-up. Something tells me Jackson and Harrington are gonna go off... and I doubt a big game from Murphy will save Indy.

I;m now going to root for the opposing team. Maybe if I root for them then the Warriors will win...

I tried that one game. And they only lost by 1. It was against the Spurs back when Baron first arrived here.

In other words, cheering for the opposing team is just as discouraging than booing the Warriors.

yeah, we'll get another 9th or 10th at this point...I have faith, but it's kind of the Unitarian variety right now...
