Instead of "don't ask", it should be "don't pay attention"... F*cker.



About the game, amazing effort. I was sure we could win, but I expected a much closer game, not only because the Rockets are a good team... It was also a back-to-back and we're playing on a short rotation.

Still, we won fairly easy, playing the game we wanted to play and, amazingly, stopping both of Houston stars. Yao had a pretty poor game (10, 7 and 5 TOs... those are Dampier's numbers, not Yao's) and T-Mac wasn't much better. And a big reason for those bad games was our D. Everytime they touched the ball, they'd had two of our guys upon them. With those two out of the game, Houston becomes a pretty beatable team.

As for us, and other than what I said about the D, all the starters played well, and should also be given credit for their effort on the boards. We're still playing on a too short rotation, but so far, so good.

Great win, just like the Phoenix one. The team is playing arguably the best in the nba right now. Another real team effort. Can't believe how Harrington is playing great defense on Yao, just amazing how he can slow down such a big and talented player and harrington isn't even known as a great defender. Rockets are just one game over 50% and that is a surprise. The team has to keep this up and they have the ability to keep winning. Big credit to SJackson, not just for the amazing play but he is rebouding now!

As Migya pointed out, the Warriors are playing some great basketball right now. Arguably the best in the league. The way this team is playing right now I am confident against most every single team we will face.

Major credit to Harrington for his great defense on Yao. Additionally, the team defense was good in halping Al and also containing McGrady for good parts of the game.

Nellie did a great job with his substitutions in both halves. I thought the game was become a methodical half-court game which does NOT suit the Warriors. Nellie inserted the small lineup and the games pace increased dramatically which in turn took Yao out of the game and allowed the Warriors to get some fast break points and build their lead back up.

There is not only player right now on the Warriors roster I have a complaint about. The way this team has fought and battled to one game over .500 in such a short period of time is nothing short of amazing. Props to Nellie and the players.

Another great win...nice to get to see another at home. I love the "team play". Most impressive thing to me last night, was the fact that towards the end of the 2nd qtr w/o Baron on the floor, they pushed a 4 pt lead to a 9 pt lead. The team as a whole seems to be playing well. When Monta was cold and Jack was out, guys like Azu and MP played extremly well. Now Monta and Al are looking extremly efficent. Hard to say who looks the most impressive...that a good thing!

He could have even had a bigger game. In the 4th qtr I kept calling the fact that Yao would not guard him outside. I think they passed it once. But I gues with a lead, driving the ball is better than jacking up 3's. It just would have been great to see him light it up.

I looked at the play by play on nba.com. I was wrong it wasn't the 4th qtr it was the 3rd. He hit the 1 trey in the 3rd all of the rest were in the first half. He didn't even attempt a shot in the final qtr.

True...a win against a team that I thought was the 5th best in the West. I'll take it!
