Warriors vs Wizards: No magic tricks allowed at the Roaracle!

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Damn it feels good to be playing at home, especially after Sunday's big win over the Blazers. Although we've had our struggles within the past few games at the Roaracle (1-2 at home/past 3 games), I think we can turn it around with these last 2 home games of the month. Uh-huh, even against the Clippers this Friday!

Washington Wizards (21-22) at Golden State Warriors (27-18)

TV: CSN Bay Area / Radio: KNBR

Arena: Oracle aka The Roaracle

Tip-Off: 7:30 PST


At 21-22 The Wizards who are 6th in the Eastern Conference standings come into town looking for a win on the road. Can the Warriors kick off back to back wins and take Washington down? No magic tricks tonight, it's straight up Warriors Basketball! Warriors vs Wizards: Let's do this!

Keys to victory:

- A solid rotation: I recall those nights where Coach Jackson would pull all of our starters and blow a critical 10+ point lead & struggle to come back. We didn't see that vs Portland on Sunday. Mix up the rotation with a mixture of starters & folks off the bench and it's a "W" baby.

- Contain John Wall who's averaging 20 points per game.

- Rebounding is the key: Secure rebounds on both the offensive & defensive end. Turn Washington's missed opportunities into points on our end.

- Light it up on the 3-point line. Curry's having a magnificent run this season. Compliment that with additional shots from Klay Thompson & our other sharp shooters... Washington's in for a world of hurt. Now if we start missing shots... that's a different story.


Predictions: (keeping' em' simple today)

- MVP like numbers for our All-star Steph Curry.

- A big double-double night for David Lee.

- Andre Iguodala puts up some key defensive plays

- Draymond Green's tonights x-factor off the bench.

- Strong rebounding night from Andrew Bogut

- Warriors win it by lucky number 7
