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

This I would imagine would be their toughest opponents on this road trip. Warriors will need to be executing on all cylinders to come out of Boston with a victory.

I'm sorry, but no, they wont be able to stop KG. This is by far the toughest game on the road trip, but this is the only game that I see them losing. Dont get me wrong, I'm not wishing them to lose, but trying to be realistic.

The only way the team wins this is by shooting well and defending. Biedrins can do a good job on Garnett somewhat. SJackson, Pietrus and Barnes can all guard Pierce and RAllen. The team has to outplay the Celts 6 players to 3 and not one to one. Don't think the team will win because it is in Boston but they very well could as they have been better the last couple of games and may be coming together

I think the Dubz will pull it out. Baron will come out fired up going against peirce, and with SJax back our team is whole again....but we will have to play a complete game to pull this one out. We need more from pietrus, and possibly a contribution from both POB and BWright...

i am pretty confident about this boston game...they rely too much on big 3.
but W's are all over the board...5 players can make play, if u stop Baron then s-jax will step up, but boston if u can slow down garnett and pierce the game is pretty much over...

i want to see if W's play speed with them,let them die by exhausted...hehehehe :mrgreen:

let's be honest - back to back game after the best team in the east by far, hungry for a win after their first loss in 9 games...

not a chance

I voted yes - it was a heart vote and I wouldn't make that bet. I think they match up much better against the celtics than against the spurs or jazz, though. It is not inconceivable, but I agree that hands down it is the hardest road game of the trip - they could certainly end the trip 4-1...

I can't wait to see this game. We're a different team right now, playing much better and finishing games (as proven in the Toronto game). We've won 3 straight and the team is in its highest point since the beginning of the season.

With that said, and in a back-to-back, I doubt we'll be able to get a win at Boston. But I'd take a L at Boston if we keep winning the rest of the trip.

I think its all gonna be a bit much for us. Its not like we could put S-Jax on Pierce, Allen and KG..............Biedrins wont be able to handle KG, will get into foul trouble...........S-Jax on Pierce so they can bang at each other..........maybe Monta or Pietrus chasing Allen all about the place.

After that, Im not worried at all..............but that is a hell of alot to worry about and be consumed with on D.

We shall see but as previously said, Im happy to end this trip with this one as a loss...................NO MORE THOUGH!!! lol

I think the poll is a little off. CAN the W's win, yes. WILL they, I'm thinking no. Back to back on a road trip is hard enough, but to come against the (currently) best team in the East for that second game will prove very difficult.

Should be fun to watch. How many people do we use to front/double KG? Jack on Pierce, BD on Allen. No Al might be a real killer on both offense and defense.

Celts, in a fairly close game.

Ugh. Boston destroys perimeter teams. The only team that was able to slay them, thus far, were the Magic, who rode the inside production of Dwight Howard. On top of that, we're on the tail end of a back-to-back and Baron played until 4 minutes left in the 4th quarter yesterday.

Celtics by 15. Maybe more.
