On the road again... How the Dubs will match up against Detroit:
X-Factor: Jermaine O'Neal. What else can we say about J.O.'s performance against the Nets last Saturday? 23 points & 13 rebounds says it all. He came up BIG and we're gonna need that going into tonight's game. Andre Drummond & Josh Smith are a pretty tall order to defend! With Lee & Bogut questionable for tonight's game, Jermaine's services on both offense & defense are needed throughout this road trip.
Contain Josh Smith: That's a tall order for our bigs depending on Lee or Bogut's availability. Smith scored a season-high 32 points vs the Mavs on Saturday. Gotta contain him Dubs, lets not give him a career night opportunity!
Steve Blake's just getting started: It's too early to judge but I like Steve in a Warriors jersey so far. Solid shooter, fantastic passer & good vision around the court. He's gonna make an impact off the bench for our squad. Looking forward to seeing more positives in this road trip.
Predictions: (in the form of Hip-Hop quotable)
"Today was a good day." (Ice Cube) - Jermaine O'Neal with a monster night.
"Heat it up." (Bubba Sparxxx) - Splash Brothers high shooting percentage kind of night. Start off strong fellas!
"Grindin'" (The Clipse) - Grinding out mad assists between Stephen Curry & Steve Blake. Sharing is caring Dub Nation! Look for great ball movement tonight.
"Woo Hah!!! Got you all in check!" (Busta Rhymes) - Warriors win by 5.
"1nce Again" (A Tribe Called Quest) - If we don't win by 5, Andre Iguodala with the road win buzzer beater. ALWAYS exciting to see.
