What an interesting season we're having Warriors fans. I recall starting the season with an enthusiastic "Let's go Warriors!" (clapping and all, lol!) While it still has it's moments halfway into the season, I'm finding myself chanting "WHAT THE HECK WARRIORS?!?" even more lately. Especially with the lack luster performances we've been having on the home court. Who knows, perhaps a change prior to the upcoming trade deadline is needed?
Right now we have bigger fish, err I mean Bulls to fry tonight. Chicago's in town & a win for us is very necessary. Weather report shows rain across the Bay Area, hopefully the Splash Brothers drench it across the 3-point line or we're in for a slight drizzle at the Roaracle. Warriors vs Bulls: Let's go!
The Bulls are in town and we're gonna need some luck:
- Tuesday's loss against the Bobcats was damn ugly. Missed shots, sloppy turnovers & our second lowest scoring total of the season shooting at 31.2 percent... The numbers don't lie, we deserved that loss. Our solution tonight is simple: Play the opposite of last Tuesday's performance and win it at home with an insane shooting percentage. It's not gonna be easy, Chicago knows defense.
- Speaking of Chicago, last Tuesday was a different story for them as they snapped the Suns 5 game win streak. Carlos Boozer & Joakim Noah both recorded double doubles are going to keep our guys hands full tonight. The Bulls ranks second in the league with 92.8 points allowed per game this season.
- This looks to be a low scoring defensive game on both sides of the court. That is unless our squad can out-hustle Chicago on offense. A high scoring percentage is what I'm anxious to see after our last loss. Good defense from Iguodala, Bogut & company are a big plus in order for us to stay in the game.
- For the Dubs to claim a victory, we need to break out of the funk we're in. Drop that low shooting percentages, get a solid contribution from our bench, especially with Jermaine O'Neal back. Maintain a commanding lead and run the floor like a boss. It's crazy to see 5 of our last 7 home games come down to losses. Hopefully a rowdy and enthusiastic home crowd can factor in some positive vibes.
- I see improvements on our end tonight regardless of how beastly Chicago's D looks. (we're 11-3 in our past meetings with Chicago)
- A strong double double performance by David Lee (who had a bad game Tuesday)
- A Splash Brothers return to glory. It's already raining outside... drench the 3-point line with treys.
- An impressive team effort from our #FullSquad: team work makes the dream work!
- Snap that funk and lets take a rewarding win against Chicago. Warriors win it by 5. (fingers crossed!)
