Put Tony on Ellis and Marc should be unstoppable. Keep this great 3pt shooting up and we got this one......hopefully. I like this feeling when the Grizzlies win.....let's go for another....GO GRIZZLIES!!

Biedrins has been a huge disappointment this season, but David Lee is another story. Statistically, he's the 4th best PF in the West behind KLove, Aldridge and Griffin. And as always, their high-scoring backcourt of Ellis and Curry. Will be the biggest test for the team since we faced the Bulls.

No doubt....... Ellis and Curry will need to be neutralized as much as possible. This game and Phoenix are our best chance for wins on this Western road trip.

I really think this game is key if we want to have a chance of going 2-2 on this road trip. I know that sounds like stating the obvious, but I think GS and Phoenix represent the best chances for wins of the 4 games.

Portland will be tough to beat in the Rose Garden and without Zach and I dont know what to think about the Clippers. Minny just beat them at Staples but who knows how they will play against us. So we just need to keep our heads down and keep diggin at Golden State and find a way to win.

We will need Tony to do his best and shut down Ellis. Gasol should have a huge game but whoever has to guard David Lee needs to be physical with him. Mike and Curry is a good matchup but we really need to play defense, limit the three, and Rudy needs to explode.

Attack, attack, attack the basket. If their bigs get into foul trouble, then we should be good. Contain Ellis and shut down Lee. And while you're at it, kick Curry in his ankle, Tony! One less scorer to worry about...

With the momentum we've got right now, and the fact that GS is still mediocre at best, I see us winning in a semi-blowout. The 3 ball is really all the Warriors have. As long as we defend it well, or match their 3s with our own, we'll be fine.

this one feels like a heatcheck nailbiter that comes down to free throws for the winner, going to take a xannax for this one

OJ is going to be the "key factor" in this game. He has to get off on another good start and hopefully his confidence will continue to soar.

GS can be very dangerous. They are probably one of the only teams in the West to beat both Miami and Chicago. I'd say don't get your hopes up.

This is a true test for you. If you don't overreact if we lose, we'll all know this isn't the real GTG!

Very true. As long as we don't let our guard down (no pun intended) we should win. Any lapse on the court could spell trouble though.
