I got it right with the Rockets outside guns but with TMac out, a great win for the team! What a performance! JRich came alive in the 2nd half and he is showing that he STILL is a special player that is a star. Baron did it all early. Great team effort and this win makes it alot easier!

Unfortunately, both the Clippers and Nuggets won last night. It would have been nice if the Clips would have lost to the Lakers, but it was not to be.

Seven games to go for the Warriors. The way things are going for the Clippers, the Warriors might need to win six of those to get in. That is a tough task, but it is possible.

I'm beginning to be with you on this, Chi-Tom. All along I thought 41-41 would guarantee a berth, but the way the clippers are playing, the ws probably have to go 6-1 and finish 42-40. If ANYONE on this board had said 10 games ago the Ws were going to go 7-3 and beat the Suns and Rockets and lose a game in the standings to the clippers, they would have cleaned up on a bet, but that is exactly what has happened. I can squint my eyes and see the ws going 5-2 the rest of the way, but 6-1? Man...to do that, they can afford a loss to the Spurs in SA and that is it...bizarre, but I could win that bottle from Migya and the ws could miss the playoffs.



Doesn't that make the bet null and void? :mrgreen:

Wanted to put in a little props to Matt Barnes. Coming off the bench, he didn;t have much of a stat line, but he put in good minutes against Yao. In what was surely his first time playing center in the NBA, Barnes fronted the Big Man well, and got a couple of steals.

Nice one, Barnes, hope you stay a while.

Not shiit, want a teddy bear for your intelligence :mrgreen: You've been wrong about many things, like dunnyboy becoming an integral part of the team for years to come but you don't see me jump up and down calling you out on it :wink:

Matt Barnes is one of the most underrated players on the team. He was great at the start of the season and was a major factor in quite a few games that the team barely won. He is multitalented and should be kept

nah, the bet was you said the ws were more likely to go 4-16 than 14-6 in last 20 and the wager was on. It would be bitter grey goose, but I would still drink it 8)

thanks, mate...honestly, am happy to give up the bottle if ws win, but even the bottle-winning season may not get it done. I do see 4 potential games in a row that the clips could lose. Denver, at Dallas, at NOK, Lakers, so here's hoping :?
