Warriors (W-L): 24-28

Nuggets (W-L): 25-24

Time: 6:00pm PST

TV: FSN Bay Area

Radio: KNBR 1050

The Good:

  • In February the Warriors have been a wild roller coaster ride that goes up and down, up and down, up and down. I'm not kidding: Win against the Six-Six-Sixers, Loss against BETcats, Win against the Murphleavy Pacers, Loss against the TWolves and India's finest hoopstar KG, Win against the Bulls and some of their classless fans, and Loss against the Hotlanta Hawks. We're due for a win tonight.
  • The Dubs have actually won the battle of the boards for two straight games. Rebounding is going to be one of the keys to victory against the Nuggets. Break out that bottle of Windex fellas!
  • Allen Iverson probably won't be playing tonight.
  • Only 2 more games till JRich comes back.
  • GSoM is still the hottest hoops community on the 'net!
  • We're still the best dressed hoopsters around!


The Bad:

  • Many of us still have that nasty Dr. Pepper-like taste in our mouth after last night's depressing loss.
  • Baron Davis is out with a bruised left knee and probably won't be back till after the All Star break. UPDATE: Baron Davis is out indefinitely with knee surgery
  • Mickael Pietrus is probably out with a sprained right ankle.
  • Al Harrington might have sustained a concussion in last night's loss thanks to an elbow from Zaza Pachulia. Why Zaza? WHY?!
  • Stephen Jackson's racking up some serious frequent flyer miles with all these court dates (see loyal GSoM community member gswrico's diary More Jax Legal News....).
  • The Nuggets traded away Earl Boykins in a salary dump. Straight up- we want Earl. Straight killin' elephants!
  • Allen Iverson probably won't be playing tonight. Hey, he's fun to watch! You can't tell me you're not curious to see how AI and Melo play together either. I will always throw up a W for my man AI.


Vegas Odds: Denver by 9 (as of 12:39pm PST from Fox Sports)


  • Warriors by 1.
  • Both teams score over 110 points- if you love offense this is the game for you.
  • Monta Ellis drops 25 points.
  • Stephen Jackson has a bounce back game.
  • Warrior-killer Carmelo Anthony drops 30 points.
  • Eduardo Najera makes all the Warrior fans still sporting his jersey proud with a double-double.
  • The Warriors get abused on the battle of the boards.
