I would LOVE to see them go out and have the same lineup. It's kind of funny... I was about to mention that, too. If they can play like they did tonight, Warriors by 10. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Reckon the team will go with the same starting lineup just because it was so successful. The Kings did have a big win against the Spurs today so both teams are coming off wins against the best two nba teams.

This has to be a win for the team to keep the momentum going and kepp a serious push up the standings.

i think they will stick with the small lineup against the kings. brad miller doesnt play as big as he seems so he wont push us around on the block. doubt mikki moore will start..i think this might be the first game sac starts artest at 4 and puts francisco garcia into the lineup. if not, thats what will end up happening.

warriors by 12.

i live an area that gets kings and warrior games, and the kings are bad with bibby, without him it gets real bad. kevin martin is the only player to look out for. the warriors should win this comfortably.

This isn't a team you necessarily run against. We'll go back to our traditional lineup.

but knowing nelson, he probably will run against them to push the pace early.

Yeah, I see us going back to Biedrins, Harrington, Jackson, Azubuike, Baron again with Barnes and Monta coming off the bench this time around. We'll use small ball against teams like the Suns and use the traditional one against regular ones.

This is one of those games that worries me. I mean we're so much better than the Kings that, on paper, should be one of the easiest games of the year.

But, for some reason, we have trouble beating these teams. Maybe we play too relaxed, expecting a W just because we're better.

Still, should be a win. Dubs by 8.

If Kevin Martin goes to the line 20 times (like he always does), the Kings will stay in the game. They'll put Artest on Baron, so SJax needs to demolish whoever switches on him.

I hate Kevin Martin. He's like the 2nd coming of Devin Harris. Flopper extraordinaire.

Back to the AB lineup, with spurts of the smallball line. That's what the W's should be doing anyway. The display against the Suns was incredible, and showed what can happen when everything is working right for a whole game.

But, yeah, W's look so much better than the Kings. Still, upsets happen (look at last night; W's over Suns, Knicks over Jazz, Kings over Spurs). Still, W's are looked strong right now, and look scrappy and ready to fight for a win at the end of the game.

W's by 10.
