OPEN THREAD: Preason Game #5 - Warriors vs. Spurs

New, comments

Warriors (W-L): 3-1 (preseason)

Spurs (W-L): 1-1

Time: 5:30PM EST (no radio or tv)

Today's marquee matchup: Spurs' 2005 1st round draft pick Ian Mahinmi vs. Warriors free agent signee Carlos Powell.  Or would you prefer Spurs' Darius Washington vs. free agent hopeful Tierre Brown?

It's about that time in the pre-season where teams begin resting their starters giving the wannabes a chance to prove themselvse as legitimate ball players.  Pat Riley, coach of the Miami Heat, has already hinted publicly that the preseason is a little too long and the fear of injury haunts most any team.  Though, what might be more intriguing than the above matchups is seeing whether POB can develop some consistency that he's had so far in the preseason and when Bellinelli will finally realize that all white sneakers is only hot with khakis or baggy jeans.

The Warriors take on the reigning NBA champions in San Antonio tonight, which will probably be as interesting as an episode of "Everybody Loves Raymond."  The Spurs would probably be the equivalent to Ray Romano (perhaps more specifically Tim Duncan), where they (the Spurs) are continously successful year to year but you sort of have no idea why given the level of talent (or jokes in Romano's case) on the team.  Well, if success is Ray Romano, then that's what the Warriors should try to strive for.

Will the Warriors be killing it like Ray Romano this season?


* Spurs by 5
* Spurs hopefuls show off their flopping skills ala Bruce Bowen and Manu Ginobili
* Kosta Koast goes coast-2-coast!

UPDATE (Atma Brother #1): Warriors lose 111-116.
