New, comments

Warriors (W-L): 10-8

Heat (W-L): 4-14

Time: 7:30pm PST

TV: FSN Bay Area

Radio: KNBR 680

Coming off four consecutive losses, the Miami Heat enter our domain tonight to play one of the hottest teams in the league, our beloved Warriors. Who would have thought at this point in the season the Heat would be 4 and 14? Granted, they didn't have their top player Dwyane Wade for the first couple of weeks, but come on? They have Shaq ... the most dominant ...errr well an aged superstar who plays maybe one out of every 4 games to his potential.

Warriors have won 10 of their last 12. I haven't had this much fun watching the Warriors since the Run TMC days. Tonight we play a pretty strong Eastern Conference team. However, I predict we cream them by 12! Yea that's right. I know historically we have problems with big guys like Shaq and superstars like Wade, but after coming off a loss against the Trailblazers, we're looking to run the tables on them.

When you're a high profile GSoM individual like I am, you get invited to prestigious holiday parties where I got the opportunity to meet Jim Barnett and his lovely wife. I asked where they think the Warriors will end up come playoff time and they both adamantly stated the Warriors will be no lower then a 7th seed. I agree and look for the Warriors to prove a 7th seed in the West is like a 3rd seed in the East.

If you are a Bay Area native, this week Aries Spears, one of my favorite comedians, will grace us at Cobbs Comedy in San Francisco. I couldn't find one of his Shaq impersonations but here is one of my favorites I just had to post:

completely unrelated ... but funny ...

Predictions:

  •  Warriors by 12.
  •  Shaq gets into early foul trouble. Sits most of the night on the bench.
  •  Barnes comes up big tonight.
  •  Do we see POB and Wright together? NO! they get a combined 2 minutes of play.
  •  Wade held to 30 points.
  •  Harrington hits 4 three pointers.



Update (Atma Brother #1):

Warriors Win!! 120-113

Stay tuned for the Recap!
