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

easiest game of this first part of the season. we will cruise all second half and let marco and the other benchers make some experience. this will turn very useful come playoff time

I have seen the 49ers win a Superbowl. I have now seen the Giants win a world series. I need one more championship in my lifetime to make my life complete...

Yep, and he hasn't played bad, compared to most of his teammates.

Al Jefferson is having a big season, Brewer is learning (still has trouble scoring, but he's improving game by game, and helps on D and on the boards) and Craig Smith has had a couple of impressive games. Ryan Gomes also has played well in the minutes he's had. The rest of the team stinks. Minny is, by far, the worst team of the NBA right now. Not even the Sonics suck so much.

Should be a win, and an easy one. I don't want to sound overconfident, as anyybody can win against anybody on any given night... but this is one of those games that we shouldn't lose, no matter what.

Doleac's head is certainly long and thin!

This has to be a win and should be an exhibition for the bench guys, hopefully plenty of Belinelli and BWright.

TWolves are clearly in rebuild mode. They're not going anywhere this season, and will spend the majority of it looking at their roster and trying to find a direction to go. Should be easy.

W's by 10. With some game time (say 5 minutes) for Wright, as Nellie has given him some props lately.

Uh, krome ol' buddy... NBA.com's standings list the T-Wolves at 3-20, not 7-16.

This should be the easiest game of the season... but knowing our Warriors, they'll keep it close to make it interesting. Golden State by less than 10. Just a hunch.

Yeah, Isee them going 3-2 on this trip, so they have to win this one, hard to win both ends of a back to back against jersey/cleveland

They can beat Jersey AND Cleveland... but, you're right, back-to-backs are tough. They'll smoke the T-Wolves, though.

Anybody feel like playing defense? 14-8 in 4 minutes? Both teams shooting 80% from the field?
