OPEN THREAD GAME #51 - BULLS AT WARRIORS

New, comments

Warriors (W-L): 23-27 
Bulls (W-L): 28-22
Time:
7:30 PM PST tip off
TV: ESPN
Radio: KNBR 1050

The pattern is becoming irritatingly predictable.  W-L-W-L-W-L...so we can make an educated guess based on the Warriors recent play that today will be a WIN!  In a related note, it is a little frightening to know that the last time the Warriors put together back to back wins (before their pair January 24th then January 27th) was a full month prior--a span of eleven games which featured two three-game losing streaks.  Lets hope  we can gain some ground as we play four of our next five at home.

Luckily the Bulls are just as bad as the Warriors are on the road (8-16 to be exact).  Apparently the Bulls are also cursed in the Oracle Arena; the last time the Bulls won in Oakland was when Jordan was still around (after his first retirement that is...). Although Baron and Monta are listed day-to-day, reports show that they will suit up, though maybe only for some spot duty.  

There have been questions about the compatibility of the current Warriors squad.  These compatibility issues, I think, also include the countless injuries the Warriors squad has sustained over the course of the season.  Do you think it is fair to excuse some of the Warriors current defensive and/or offensive deficiences to a lack of time spent together on the court?  Does the fact that the Warriors have used twenty seven different starting fives this season suggest that maybe they just aren't at full strength?  Or would a good coach able to plug folks in and out with as minimal amount of speed bumps (unlike the craters for the Warriors) along the way?

Vegas Odds: Even (according to ESPN.com @ 4:26 EST)

GSoM Prediction:

  • Warriors by 7
  • Hinrich is no match for Davis, who comes back and drops 20 points and 12 assists on a bum knee
  • Foyle plays 20 minutes and the crowd salutes Foyle's patriotism in the pre-game warm-ups
