Golden State of Mindcast Game Preview: Golden State Warriors vs Portland Trailblazers. Q&A with Blazer's Edge

Do you hate watching your favorite team lose to the Los Angeles Lakers? Does the sight of yet another Golden State Warrior limping off the court in pain get you down in the dumps? Are you in a post-loss depression?

Well we've got the cure for what ails you! Quality prescription drugs A brand new Golden State of Mindcast! Today we're previewing tonight's game against the Portland Trailblazers. Luckily this podcast was recorded on Thursday, so we only had one bummer loss leading up to it — no weeping uncontrollably in this one, folks!

Nate and I sat down with Dave Deckard of the Blazer's Edge to talk about how the Blazers have been able to torch the competition (see what I did there?) thus far in this young season, and what the Warriors can do to douse the inferno (Boom! I'm on fire). (I hate myself.) To distract yourself from how terrible I am, check out Dave's excellent recap of last night's Blazers win — yeah, their 11th — against the Chicago Bulls, whose fans I would not trade places with for one second at this moment. This league is more fun with Derrick Rose on the court — hoping for the best, Chicago.

Ok, one annoying note from your neighborhood podcast producer: If you've subscribed to Golden State of Mindcast through Apple (via the iTunes Store or your Podcasts iOS app), or if you've subscribed to it using the RSS feed link I've given before, I ask that you UNsubscribe, and then REsubscribe. The feed you're currently subscribed to will continue to work, you'll get new episodes, etc — the newer, updated feed that you'd get if you resubscribe is just helpful for us in tracking how many people are listening. So do me a favor and resubscribe, if only out of pity for the terrible jokes in that last paragraph.

Since I've been blabbing about it, I'll go ahead and give the links here first:
