* The slaughter is set to take place. But I have an eerie feeling that the Warriors are going to win this game. Am I tripping?
* Nellie, because the Spurs go mostly small ball now, went with his smallest starting lineup yet.
That means Biedrins is matched up against Tim Duncan one-on-one with no help. That’s perhaps not the best situation for Biedrins. Either he’s going to get in early foul trouble or Duncan’s going to go off.
* Talked to Nellie about how he thought Maggette was fiiting in. He said “good” and that he fit well. Hardly convincing. But then Nellie can be short some times.
* The Spurs had six assist on the first seven baskets (started 7 of 10), four by Manu Ginobili. They have already outscored the Warriors 10-2 in the paint. I guess I was tripping.
ADD: On the Corey subject, an interesting play happened in the first quarter. Maggette took a shot, came back down, took another shot. The rebound caromed back to him. Without so much as a blink, he took another shot. Jamal Crawford turned to the bench with a WITW (What in the world …) look before he ran down court on defense.
