Does it all come down to tonight?

Sure, if the Warriors lose to the Mavericks and run the table, they’re in.
But the reality is, they DESPERATELY need this game tonight. Losing it would not only drop them a game behind Denver and two games behind Dallas, it would be a total buzz kill. This group hasn’t lost back-to-back games since the first week of January. To suffer a losing streak now would probably zap the zeal right out of the Warriors, especially coming off the spanking they got from San Antonio.
This is more than just about getting even in the standings. This is more than just securing a tie-breaker option. This is a statement game. This game lets Dallas and Denver know that they’re fighting for one spot, because the Warriors are in. It’s going to be hard to believe they have it in them if they can’t pull this game out.

    You can bet on it.

    They will play it on a fast pace, may give up defense to establish the tempo.

    Control the game with Fastbreaks and treys. If they have throw away the textbook in order to get the W, which they have done continually so, They will do it.

    Marcus, as early as now, Im already campaining for Kenneth Love of UCLA. I think he would be a great fit. Great Timing and presence. His Broad Shoulders makes him hard to stop and he boxes out at will. Most of all, He likes to run!

    What do you think?

    What a bummer of a game tonight. The W’s did not show up again.

    Marcus, What do you think of picking up some tough and defensive minded players like a Ron Artest?

    Marcus,

    If the Warriors become a 50 game lottery team, they get an advantage by leap-frogging the bad East teams that make the playoffs. Is there anyone in the NCAA you’ve seen that could help next season if our draft position is between 10-14?

    Charles Barkley is right.

    If you live with the treys, you die with the treys.

    It’s that simple.

    But the real cause of the loss was lack of involvement and the selfishness that resulted. A total of 10 assists for the two games we lost? Thats not going to cut it for a team that has low height average.

    You commit to a running game but you dont pass the ball, then you become predictable and limited.

    I think the fatigue factor is creeping in as well.

    Too Bad. We couldnt establish a momentum…
