GAMETHREAD #70 - Golden State Warriors vs Phoenix Suns - Here Comes The Pain Train..

Aaaaand the pain train continues. For the Warriors now return home to face off against the Phoenix Suns. And it ain't gonna be pretty in the Oracle tonight. While the Warriors continue to play with a hobbled roster, Phoenix has been on a tear with their big man averaging over 30 points a game this month.

So just to sum it up, their inside presence is arguably one of the most potent offensive forces in the league while right now, the biggest guy on our team is our coach. (I didn't specify height.)

Oh yea. This should be a real barnburner...

"Any casualties?"                             "Just the Warriors' season..."

Warriors (W-L):19-50

Suns (W-L): 43-26

Tip-Off: 7:30

TV: CSN, CSNHD

Radio: KNBR

There's really not a whole lot to say about this match up so let's just get it all out there. Right now the only excitement we're going to be able to draw from the rest of the season will come from growth of our core group (which seemingly changes every week) and the occasional surprise win. Every game is our own personal NCAA event! Well, y'know, with us being the 16 seed.

So let's hope that the boys can go out, put up a good showing, and figure out a way to slow down the lethal Nash, Stoudemire, J-Rich trio and get Nellie one win closer to the most amount of wins for a coach.

Cuz right now, it's all we got.

GO DUBS!

 

Predictions:

Um... Warriors by 1?
