OPEN THREAD: Game # 50 - Warriors @ Twolves

Warriors (W-L): 23-26
Twolves (W-L): 22-26
Time: 5:00PM PST tip off
TV: FSN Bay Area
Radio: KNBR 1050

What's this? A chance to salvage this road trip with a win? A win tonight gets the Warriors to .500 on the road trip and 1.5 games in front of the Twolves for the 9th spot in the West. A loss puts us at 2-4 on the trip and back in the 10th spot. Sounds easy enough...

Kevin Garnett is a beast. I consider him to be a top 5 player, maybe #2 behind Kobe. I know his teams haven't made the playoffs all the time nor have they done well when he gets there, but he's one of the most talented big men around that can do everything for you. When I say everything, I mean everything. Score in the post, score from the perimeter, rebound, block shots, steal the ball, play excellent defense, pass the ball, shall I go on? Anyways, he's scary and I'm not sure how the Warriors will guard him and prevent him from getting 40 points and 20 boards.

The Warriors are coming off a big win in Indy and should be pumped for this game the problem is they have nobody to run the point. Monta is doubtful, Baron is questionable, and Sarunas is garbage. Nellie will have to be creative tonight especially if the Twolves bring some pressure. It could get ugly with lots of turnovers. Let's pray someone steps up.

Vegas Odds: Even (12:48p)
EDIT: ESPN's line is screwy and says Even. So instead, I'm going with Wagerline's +8.5 (2:20p)

GSoM Prediction:

  • Warriors by 3
  • KG is traded to the Warriors at halftime, puts on a Warriors jersey, and proceeds to tear up his former squad.
  • I wake up from my KG dream.
