Tonight's the night! The Warriors have lost two games since the blockbuster trade. In the first loss the Dubs were short handed and put out a NBDL team against the Paper Clips and in the second Baron Davis was unavailable against the Cleveland LeBrons. Tonight against the LA Fakers in Staples is the first time Boom Dizzle, Al Harrington, Stephen Jackson, Sarunas Jasikevicius will be playing together. The Warriors were big winners in the 8 player trade with the Pacers and now it's time to start winning on the hardwood. Let's do this.
The Lakers will be without Lamar Odom aka the poor man's Scottie Pippen and Kwame Brown aka Joe Smith Part II (haha, think they regret that Caron Butler trade? Another nice job by Mitch Kupchak!), while the Warriors will be missing Jason Richardson and rookie Patrick O'Bryant (POB's jammin' again). This game presents a great opportunity for the Warriors to make up for the whoppin' the Kobe-less Lakers dished out on opening night in Oakland. Remember, the Bay > LA.
It's a new Warriors squad and you DO NOT want to miss it!
