If the Warriors win tonight, I'll go see this movie in the theatre!
Tip-Off: 7:00 PM PST
The Warriors are 4 and 19 on the road this season and the Trail Blazers are clearly the most improved team in the league with a home record of 13 and 4. All signs point to a disappointing result for the Warriors tonight however, I'm thinking we have a chance here for reasons most people can't comprehend.
Why? Well because I'm delusional for one, but most importantly because the Trailblazers are without their star player Brandon Roy. With a four game losing streak we have to take advantage of this and hope or depleted roster can come alive. But that alone won't help us. No, we are going to need something more powerful than that. We need the power of "Idiotic Statistics". Check this out: We are 3 and 3 this year when playing on Saturday nights. That's a 50% coin flip. But if you break it down even more, you'll see that we are 3 and 3 when playing Saturday night road games. That means every single Saturday night game on the road we've played this year, we've won half of them. Now I don't want to jinx us or anything and I hope this trend continues, but if I were a betting man (which I'm not) I might put a lot of money on the warriors tonight. In fact I think I might put a nickel on it! Or record shows that we win 2 consecutive Saturday night games on the road followed by 3 Saturday night losses. So obviously we are going to win since we lost to Denver on 12/13 and then won against the Bobcats on 12/20. We are due for another Saturday night victory.
Yea neither do I but on another interesting note we only play 1 Saturday night game at home this year. That stinks.
- Warriors lose by 7 (superstitious prediction).
- Aldridge and Oden combine for 37 points.
- Ellis still doesn't play.
- Wright and Belinelli have big nights.
- Yao Ming scores 33 against the Knicks.
