The wya I see it is... They gotta win on the road at some point and so why not now?

We are healthy and we are playing more and more like the time when Baron first initially arrived to the W's. We are playing Nelly Ball both on D and Offense...frantic pace and disrupting the other team's star player's concentration appears to be working. We lost the Portland game for a lot of reasons (Beginning the game flat, no energy, MORE IMPORTANTLY NO BARON). Like it or not, Baron is the Steve Nash of the Warriors... When he plays we respond differently. Call it a swagger, call it whatever you want, he is a bonafide superstar/entertainer and he plays that way on the court.

Baron needs to just PUNISH the pg in this game! We are better and deeper than the Sonics so its time to play like a playoff team!

I've been a Warriors fan since they traded Chris Webber. Can you imagine how that's like....

Baron for the win! That Damien Wilkins shot came dangerously close though. Great game!

Well thank god for that....talk about holding your breath. The bloody stats and play by plays weren't bloody working properly. In fact the play by plays weren't working at all....but we won dammit!!! Yes!! Ok, it shouldn't have been this close, but we've finally shown we can win an away/back to back game. Not to mention a close game, that you'd usually expect us to lose. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I am impressed that the Warriors were down seven, made a costly turnover with 2:30 remaining BUT kept their composure and kept playing D and slowly stripped from the margin.

That was so ugly it did not have an alibi.

I'll take the win though. That was huge. Baron is a beast for hitting that shot.

the officiating was horrible...and mentally those bad calls can mess up a player's psyche. however, i was pleasantly surprised at how the warriors handled the obvious frustrations on the court. you can see it in the way that the team was playing how important it was to win. the warriors don't get respect from officials...so the only way to win is to play the best basketball you possibly can to win the game and i think they demonstrated that. greeaaaat game.. but i prefer to just see the warriors cruise through to the playoffs than scare the **** out of me with these close games lol.

Great win - well, I sort of had the prediction right. I said that the W's would get an early lead, and then hang on for the win....'course I left out the part about getting behind in the 3rd quarter and being behind by 7 with 3 minutes left......

Clutch shot by Jackson to cut the lead to 5, and then Davis took over. As others have noted, it shouldn't have been that close but it's encouraging that they found a way to win.

Now sit back and watch the Clips lose to The Nets tomorrow (hopefully), and then watch the Lakers and TWolves fight it out on ESPN tomorrow night.

Man. I absolutely knew we were going to lose this after the first five of the third. Notice how much more clutch we've been since the trade? We're actually winning close games now.

Hadn't really thought about it, but I went and checked the results. Before the trade, the Warriors were 5-8 in games decided by 5 points or less. After the trade, they are 5-4 in such games. So I guess you are most definitely right!
