I fully believe that when I return the Ws will be getting ready for their first game against the Mavs in the playoffs and Migya will have purchased me a gift certificate at BevMo, which I will happily redeem for a delicious bottle of:

You deserve your bottle, man. :headbang:

I hope that everybody that's going to the game has a good time... and show the Mavs what's waiting for them in the first round!!!.

Besides scoring, the Warriors' individual leader beats out the Mavericks' in every statistical category (blocks, rebounds, assists, steals)... yet, they're a 66-win team right now and we're a 40-win team. And I've noticed this sort of thing all year; where a Warrior player leads most categories against their counterparts, yet the other team usually has a better record.

Kinda strange.


Injuries. And a lil bit chemistry.

Actually, it's completly reasonable. You forgot to look at the opposing team statistics. The Warriors give up the highest opposing points in the league (107) whereas Dallas gives up only 92. Warriors allow opposing teams to put up 25 assists whereas Dallas only allows 17. Rebounding? W: 47, M: 38. And same goes with all FG%, 3PT%, TO, BLKS & STLS.

It's just that Dallas matches up horrible with the Golden State Warriors.

Biggest game in 12 years? I think so. I think we win this even if their starters do play. We match up so well with them and the team is playing their best ball in years. Just gotta win out baby.

Oh, I was purely talking about individual statistics (not team stat's). Baron (our leader in APG) averages more dimes a night than Jason Terry (their leader in APG)... and the same is true for our leaders in steals, blocks, and rebounds.

But really, when does individual stats really matter in a team game?

The Suns might pull a Spurs tomm night and rest their starters! The Suns have already secured the 2nd seed and have nothing to lose! So I really don't expect the Suns to put forth a full effort!!!

I was pretty calm about this game until today. With all the nonstop talk on KNBR its got me all fired up.

Im staring at the clock. Can't wait for the game.

And I got that feeling in my stomach....kinda like.....well....when the Niners are in the playoffs. A feeling I havent had with the Warriors. UNTIL MAYBE NOW !

Go Dubs! They deserve it, we deserve it! :D
