Game #19: Warriors @ Rockets

Warriors (W-L): 9-9

Rockets (W-L): 11-5

Time: 5:30PM PST tip off

Okay here are some positives after last night's defeat.

  1. It can only get better.
  2. At least everyone (except Adonal) is rested. 2nd day of a back to back isn't so bad if nobody really tried on the 1st day.
  3. Hash's sandwich.
Houston is the team that submarined our season last year. Remember Luther Head with the game tying 3 to send the game to OT? Then we got stomped in OT and stomped the rest of the year. Let's make this the game that turns the season around, this time for the better. The Warriors need to show some heart and hustle tonight after getting blown by 40.

Houston's good but they're beatable especially since TMac is questionable after Dikembe's elbow to the head. Tmac, you need to rest and get better. Please don't play, all of us Warriors fans just want to see you 100%. So if you can't play at 100% tonight, then it's best you take it easy. Please?

Let's get Nellie win #1200.

Update: From a story from, apparently TMac is going to play tonight. In that article they also list Dikembe's many "victims" due to his elbows flying every which way.

Vegas Odds: Houston favored by 7.5 points
GSoM Predictions:

  • Warriors win by 3.
  • Game is decided by less than 40 points
  • Rockets' bench, unlike the Spurs' bench, does not nearly outscore the Warriors entire team
  • Baron goes for 25 points, 12 assists, 5 rebounds
  • Just like Nate Robinson did, Monta Ellis blocks Yao and makes him cry.
