Got to go with the team on this one. The Jazz are very good but the team owes them one and since the Jazz don't have AK to anchor their defense, hard to see them stop the Warriors scoring. Be good if Biedrins is healthy enough to play a fair few minutes because he could score some this game. This really has to be a win, yes the Clippers could lose at least 3 of their next 4 games but the team also goes on the road where they are not as good usually so got to hold home court.

Also Krome, why don't you take part in other threads? You do a great job with these game threads but you don't participate in any other

Beans has a sore sprained ankle. So I don't know how much playing he'll be getting. Expect a showdown, the Warriors absolutely need this win and the Jazz are still jocking for position against Houston. I'm not going to say this is a must win, but this will be one for the taking.

I've been out all week... and seems we're running out of chances to make the playoffs. We better win this one and the Clips lose a few or we're done.

Key game here. Not necessarily a 'must win,' but very important to the playoff run.

Jazz are not playing well right now. Whether its AK gone, wear-down at the end of the year, or whatever, they have lost at least the last two, including dropping to the Kings; during that game they showed NO abilityt o stop John Salmons, a slasher type forward much like Al. Watch for him to have a good game.

No Biedrins will make defending both Boozer and Okur fairly difficult. Barnes extended minutes, with Foyle getting some time too, if Biedrins can't play (would be his first game out this season). Also, lots of zone D tonight.

Finally, while I like the Jazz' game, I think they are one piece out of real contention. They need a floor leader. Boozer has the emotion, Deron has the vision, but they need heart out there. W's desire focused through BD and JRich pull the win. W's by 10.

Warriors will win! However, Mavs will lose to the Clippers because they are scared of the W's being in the playoffs.

mavs clinch home court if they win tonight, and then they can rest their players til the playoffs, so they will win.

Huge night tonight.....Ws gotta get the win over Utah. And hopefully Dallas will take care of business over the Clips. Mavs winning by 3 at the end of the first quarter. Howard started for Dallas, so that's a good sign for us.

I like the Ws chances tonight, after a very good roadtrip, I definitely expect them to bring their energy and take the game to Utah. Can't wait!

Mavs took care of the clips in teh 4th. Now the Warriors just need to follow through and complete the night with a win!

Lets reel the clips back in!

Great butt spanking by the team! Just shows how important Kirilenko is to Utah's defense as they have been rotten without him (also with him lately). Now even with the Clips and looking like playoffs! SJackson kicked arse, as well as the other starters, Monta and Barnes. On to the next game
