OH MY GOD BUIKE!!!!! What the hell dont you do!? 21-4 run!!!!!! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They really need to keep this lead. They cant lose this game. Good defense will win this game. If they need clutch free throws, I want Croshere or Hudson shooting them. LETS GO!

Why did they play small ball in the end again? I thought Shaq/Mourning abused us all game when they were in.

Pat Riley looked sick at the end of the game...I almost felt bad for them seeing as how they played the best 3 quarters of the year and blew it in the 4th, but then I realized as a Warrior fan we have experienced waaaaay worst so no sympathy! Baron really led us in the 4th hitting lucky 3's and slowing down Wade in the last 3 minutes...I was going absolutely nuts the last 5 minutes of the game! :) :mrgreen:

riley gave us this game by not playing his big men in the 4th. we'll take it, we get to 11-8 - same record as the lakers - and we get ready for a nice steal on sunday in LA

Great, great game! Nobody should ever doubt what this team can do. But this hot and cold shooting from game to game is nerve-racking.

They did, but maybe Riles thought they had the best chance of keeping the lead by going small, because we were still trying to push. When we caught up, it was too late ‘cause we already had the momentum. If he had changed, it probably would have been a liability for them defensively and on FTs.

warriors by 7


6 minutes off on shaqs PT, 10 pts off of ricky davis, wade went for 33 5 pts short on haslem...

but the most important...WARRIORS WIN BY 7!!!!

I'm guessing the pace just eventually wore their bigs down...

I doubt that. Shaq played 20 min (or so... I haven't checked the real amount) and Zo barely over 10. They can't be so tired to not even enter the game. I think it was a tactic. Riley thought that playing our game would be easier to keep their lead... and discovered the hard way how wrong he was.

As for ourselves, Baron had an amazing 4th quarter, on both sides of the court. Let's not forget he had to deal with Wade in the defensive end, and he did a wonderful job on him.

Also, the Heat team looked a bit tired. We probably were lucky they had to play at Portland the previous day.

And props to Monta for that three point play with 2 min on the clock. It was a tough shot, but it sealed the deal for us.

iono...i think the bigs might have been tired due to the fact that they played last night. if i was coaching the heat, once i saw the warriors getting inside more during he 4th quarter, i would have put zo back out there at least just to alter shots. then again, thats just me.

Great come back win after a pretty bad game all up. I was waiting for the run to happen though and expected it a little earlier than it did. This was the sort of win the team needed to really show that they are for real and can face adversity. Really don't see much wrong with the team right now, they are winning even when they get outrebounded and out shot. The team right now is looking somewhat a contender and it is unbelievable
