Also note, the Sonics have been on four days rest. Lets hope the Warriors come out with some fire power.

The back-to-back record isn't great for the Warriors, but they ARE 5-0 with a full lineup. I don't think the Sonics are in Golden State's league when the Warriors are playing like they have been lately.

I'll give the Dubs the benefit of the doubt, but I'm scared sh*tless of this game. Back-to-back on the road?. Definitely the kind of game we've been losing all season.

Let's hope than being healthy and the momentum of the team are enough to win it this time.

if Warriors play good defense as they have been doing lately we cannot lose. We have too many offensive weapons and the sonics will not be able to play our style of play... Warriors by 18

this game is definately a benchmark type game. The 2nd game of a back to back - our record sucks. On the road- our record sucks. Put them together - more "suckyness".

So will be interesting to see how with their full team these buck these trends. Going to be a tough game. Would be phenominal to pull this one off.

The last chip-shot we had this year was Portland... and we saw how that ended up.

However, when the Warriors start Biedrins, Harrington, Jackson, Richardson, and Davis... they're 5-0, while beating their opponents by an average of 15.8 points per game this year.

This is why the Warriors will win. I noticed good rotation on defense last night and if we can duplicate that tonight then we will win.

i'm afraid that the warriors may not win only because of the history that the warriors have had on road trips to marginal teams. btw...i didn't even notice the game thread section until now. i only thought people posted in the first one. :-o

Warriors do have a bad record this year in back to back, but the LAST back to back was Washington/Detroit. The W's beat Detroit, and should have at least had OT against Washington...I'm still pissed about that technical foul call.

W's will pull it out tonight - they'll get out to an early lead, and then hang on to win by 7.

Welcome to the board.

The difference between this game and the Pistons could be that the Warriors were pissed about that call and wanted to prove apoint. However, it was the first game w/ the new roster.

It could really go either way. But I think the Warriors will win here.

Thanks for the welcome JayPat.

I do agree that the W's need to find a way to get emotionally up for the game tonight. I'm hoping that being in the 8th playoff spot right now, and coming off what could be their biggest win of the year could give them that emotion. But I am still worried we could see the old "Road Warriors" tonight. We'll see in a few hours.

The good news is that most of the guys played relatively low minutes last night; only Biedrins, Ellis, and Richardson played more than 30 minutes.
